    Experiences with Mule Resonators?

    An important question with resos is: Is the cone spun, or is it stamped? Spun cones (like Quarterman, Beard, and Legend) are a lot louder and cleaner. I'm sure the Mule folks can tell you what they use. And another highly knowledgeable and friendly forum is www.resohangout.com.

    Songwriter Practice

    When I have peace and quiet, I can easily write five in a day, and two will be keepers. But I can also go months without writing a word. It just depends on my situation. I now live in a small house with another person, which inhibits my writing a lot — too many distractions. So instead, I work...

    This poster just returned. TDPRI hasn't opened on my home computer for over a year. I'm online at the library now. Unfortunately, I wouldn't know where to begin adding character to my posts. . . . =O[

    Really? "C'est la vie" say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell!

    How do I learn from mistake-or ?

    The no-politics rule is a little murky because political is in the eye of the beholder. For instance, in another forum I visit a lot, someone got his thread closed because he complained about a trendy word. He didn't think he was being political, but a moderator did. (I could've argued it either...

    Help me country

    A lot of Texans (born and imported) have made country sounds. A lot of these have been mentioned above. Here are some I particularly admire: Guy Clark Steve Earle Joe Ely Jimmie Dale Gilmore Butch Hancock Tish Hinojosa (my favorite) Willie Nelson Townes Van Zandt Jerry Jeff Walker Don Walzer...

    Help me country

    All good advice! Here are a few more ideas: - Listen to the pre- and anti-"Nashville Sound" folks — folks like Roy Acuff, Jimmie Rogers, Loretta Lynne, Lefty Frizzel, Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Patsy Montana, Hank Williams III, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins . . . - Listen to some of the sixties...

    I’ve finally had it!

    Only your hairdresser knows for sure! But hmm. I don't know anyone who uses elevens on a folk guitar. Since twelves (which I mostly use) are considered light, it sounds like you're trying to turn an acoustic into an electric — the worst of both worlds!

    "Protected by..." signs on one's house - yes or no?

    I just figure you can tell from the street there's nothing in here worth stealing.

    "Protected by..." signs on one's house - yes or no?

    I've never minded those lame threats of gun mayhem. Here's the one I hated the most: I used to canvass door-to-door. One afternoon I was working in New Canaan, Connecticut, a rich New York bedroom community. If you saw The Ice Storm, that's New Canaan. Anyhow, the driveways were so long that I...

    You are in a party, someone hand you a guitar, what would you play?

    When you're with me, you're definitely alone!

    You are in a party, someone hand you a guitar, what would you play?
