    Default guitar

    I plunk around on the guitar a bit, mostly for my own amusement, but everyone else that hears me is probably pretty amused too.

    Well,........... I'm a little shy and that is why I wear a hat, but maybe I'll get to play with you guys sometime, only trouble is, I play mostly rock and roll......can you believe it? You guys are really good and a bit intimidating. I would probably forget the words. I like the guitar though, it is my therapy when I have time for it. I like about all music however and enjoyed listening to you guys. Made me want to get up and dance!

    OK Ron, I thought I knew a lot about you but I would never guess a Texan that wears a hat cowboy hat plays mostly rock and roll!
    Now you gotta tell me what some of your favorite songs/bands are.

    I have been holding off on answering this and don't know why, guess I'm lazy. I started playing my Dad's 1954 Fender Esquire (a Tele without the front lipstick pickup) when I was about 6 and got my first one at 8 and played some Johnny Cash back then. I'm 42 now and still have that old Fender.

    In 1985 I was busted up in a mountaineering accident pretty bad and decided during those 2 months in a hospital bed with 11 broken bones that I would set out to fulfill a dream once I got back in the swing of things. I always wanted to be the "utility man" and play Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle and Guitar. In my 20's I got into Bluegrass and ain't never got out of it! I learned to play the fiddle some but wouldn't dare do it in front of folks, too ashamed. I used to play mandolin a lot. I had a banjo and traded it and a shotgun for a Colt Combat Commander 45ACP. I got a lot more use out of the pistol because I learned Cripple Creek and that is as far as I got and gave up.

    I chide Sam once in a while but I really do love to hear that banjo played, I just can't do it. I have a dobro now and fool with it when I'm not trying to learn how to cut scrolls. I'm most comfortable on a box guitar since I have more time on it but I don't play like Tony Rice, Bryan Sutton, or David Grier; sorry Sam.

    Well here goes.
    I used to play the piano ( took about 5 years of lessons) then about 4 years ago my wedding ring caught and i lost my left ring finger (hence my user name " three finger dave")
    but i play the harmonica a bit and really enjoy it.

    Hey Dave, I guess you might know it, but I lost my thumb and that thermalock is wondeful stuff. You ought to see the gizmo I made so I could still play the guitar. I have a little trouble hitting the right string sometimes, but I can still enjoy the guitar. How much of your finger did you lose? Probably at the joint where it joins the hand, right? I made a thumb first, that didn't work too good, but i kept playing with it intil I got it to work reasonably well. It looks pretty wierd, but it works. Don't give up on it, you might find some way to make it work. I almost pulled my finger off one time wearing a ring and I quit wearing jewelry. I grounded one on a battery once too and melted the sucker right on my finger. Carried that scar for many years, but you can't see it now.
