Default Imagine on a 1964 Martin D-28

This isn't really an arrangement, just something I had played around with. I just wanted to record something on this guitar after getting it.

Love that tone! Making me want to invest in a proper dread. I've always loved capoing deeper body guitars for whatever reason. I'd be keen to know if you have a few top favorite dreads you've played over the years. Great work as always buddy.

Wow. Flatpicking and sliding sounds amazing. The Martin’s contribution is solid as well.

What beautiful depth of tone you are getting from that old friend. Your playing is doing the song justice i must say. Very soothing and relaxed delivery.

Thanks everyone, glad y'all enjoyed. Dustinfurlow, to answer your question, it is seriously hard for me to pick just a couple of standout guitars, I have played literally thousands of guitars over the years so of course there have been a large number that were exceptional. If you are talking vintage, I would narrow it down to a particular '37 D-18, a particular '43 D-28, and a '36 Gibson AJ as the best vintage examples that I have played (based on tone). I have also played the famous 1933 D-28 owned and played by Norman Blake for many years, it was a beast of a guitar. Too many guitars from newer builders as well that are great. I guess I will just pick one, and say that my Ken Hooper Tree dreadnought is as good as anything I've played, and it is the only guitar that I have ever had built to my personal specs (neck profile in particular).

Super cool to hear. Lucky man to have graced all those guitars! I hope to play a Hooper at some point, I've enjoyed the recordings of that one alot. I know what you mean about neck profile, it can make the difference of walking past the case or stand more often or not. Cheers!
