    Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!

  2. I am thinking of getting a new guitar that has a wider nut, what kind of differences should I look for as I continue my learning journey?

    Kelly Luse

  3. Tony, do you know why they call my acoustic guitar a type “000”?

    William Schuver

  4. I have just recently started learning fingerstyle – as in a couple of weeks ago. I’m looking at Freight Train now. Do you use the standard – ring finger on little E, middle finger on B, and index finger on G.

    Ron McCollum

  5. You mentioned you recently bought an OM. What kind did you buy and how do you like it/

    Gary Swiech

  6. So, not a playing question but here goes. Do you recommend storing your guitar in its case or on a stand? I just bought my first quality guitar and I want to take care of it.

    Scott Criswell

  7. I just bought a Gibson Custom J-45 Flamed Walnut acoustic guitar and I want to put a strap button on the heel of the neck. However, everyone tells me that this will destroy the value of the guitar. What are your thoughts on this?

  9. Thank you very much for the reply, what are your thoughts on Morado (or bolivian rosewood) for fretboards and bridges, ( on the martin 15 series).

    Kjaer Brady

  10. Do you ever play music outside of your primary areas of interest simply as a way to learn new technique that you can bring back into your primary playing? For example, have you ever experimented with acoustic jazz?

    Todd Stark

  11. Hey Tony – I know you play several instruments. But – how long have you been playing stringed instruments; especially guitar?

    Ron McCollum

  12. Sorry for the name (it’s danish). Don’t worry about it. haha 🙂

    Kjaer Brady

  13. Hi, I’m getting a Martin 00-15m and I’m planning on putting an LR Baggs M1active Pickup in it. But what kind of acoustic pickup fo you like and use on your guitars? (love your reviews by the way).

    Kjaer Brady

  14. do you use a pre amp with the k&k

    peter boudreau

  15. 23rd measure in red haired boy lead in to hammer on . having some trouble with this and trouble with a tinny b string on ceo7

    peter boudreau

  16. Tony – Not to put you on the spot, but we know that the great luthiers / small producers like SCGC, Bourgeois, Collings, etc. feel that they produce “better” instruments than, say, Martin, Taylor, Gibson, etc. Do you agree?

    Todd Stark

  17. any archtop’s going to appear on the letter?

    alobstersjohnson

  18. I still have problems finding the correct notes when going up the fingerboard. Do you follow any type of fretboard logic finding them or what type of patterns do you follow or has it become second nature like you have in the 1s and second position?

    Gary Swiech

  19. What style of pickups would you add to my accoustic “000”? Bridge, mic, etc.

    William Schuver

  20. But seriously, what are the specs of your dream guitar?

    Debra Fordham

  21. How can I stop buying guitars? 🙂

    Debra Fordham

  22. comment on strings … your recommendations or is it dependant on the brand or size of guitar?
