I knew you were still alive. Your stubborn tenacity will live to be 200.

If I make it to 200, you’ll make it to 1,000!

I am a trucker listening to the audio book of your book Guitar…love it. It was interesting because I started listening to it leaving Nashville on my way to Memphis and then back again through Nashville towards NC; All the time driving down the “Music Highway” as I-40 is known in Tennessee. I’ll admit I had to stop a couple of times at rest areas and pull my Martin out just to strum it a bit as I heard you describing guitars and the beautiful music they produce. It is funny how coincidences like that happen in life. I could have been driving anywhere in the States but I just happened to be in that area to listen to your book.

I have to tell you I’ve gone crazy looking for pictures of the guitar. You need to add more pictures to this site. Detailed pictures of every single component, side and angle of the guitar with close ups would be more than welcome. It would also be wonderful if you could post pictures of the process itself.

You know how obsessive us guitarists can be when it comes to our instruments.

Thanks so much for the wonderful book.

Hi Tim,
Enjoying the audio book for the 2nd time around.
I wanted to echo the photos plea. Also, you might add a link to the amazon page that says “to see photos of the guitar click here”. I had to do some serious digging to find your blog!

Best wishes to you, your family and your guitar…

Hi Tim – I very much enjoyed the (audio)book – as a life-long socially phobic classical player, not quite a broken man (I have a nice custom Santa Cruz as well), I paid a lot of attention to your section on CG. I think your assertion that the US doesn’t have a great classical guitar composer is a bit hard on Andrew York – a beautiful player whose compositions for CG are among my favourite music at presennt – all the more since I can even play some of them 🙂

Yes, the book was written more than ten years ago, so in some respects it is already out of date. I must check out Andrew York–and I’m going to see Jesse Cook tomorrow night, so maybe my opinion of flamenco players will have to be modified as well!
All the best,
