That guitar sounds so rich, and the "jangly" part seems to sort of sit behind the sound instead of leaping out and applying high voltage current to the ears, like most 12 strings.

Very nice playing, too!
"Six cats fighting over a tuna can in a dumpster." That needs to go in the Sonic Lexicon. One of the more entertaining descriptions of sound I've read. And then, "High voltage current to the ears". I sense a book coming on.

Vance I appreciate your remarks no end, even the kind word about my playing.
Thanks for dropping by. And next time you come up to Nacogdoches, please take this baby for a spin.
