    Spotify has been great. I’ve been able to hear a lot of Chet. And YouTube is pretty good with the tutorials. I have some background with guitar so fortunately I’m not starting from zero. I figure if i work at it, i could “play” it in about 2 months. To get it to sound good, though, yeah, five years at least.

    Yep. I've been working on some stuff by R Saslow, and A Jaffe. Been a few weeks by now. And Just when I think it's fairly decent, I take a reality pill, and find that it's not too good at all.

    Where will it all end? Probably nowhere. Possibly somewhere.

    But it is worthwhile pursuing, cause what else can you do? lol

    When I saw Alaska/RHH/5120 I knew it was you :D
    This place is low drama -- a lot different than the PH Thunderdome lol
    Yeah, these guys know what they're talking about when it comes to Gretsch.
    Got some fantastic players here too!

    Hey Dave, welcome! I previously owned a 6120 RHH. Very cool guitar. Just curious . . . have you looked at any of the other 6120 models?

    I don’t ever plan on performing for anybody but myself, and there may be some unwitting victims who have to hear me practice, but It’s a lot more rewarding way to spend some free time than looking at fb, for instance.

    There seems to be a lot out there. So now I’m actually thinking getting the 5120 first was a great idea. I can really figure out what I want. It just seemed that the RHH had all the features that I liked. But I may learn that I want something totally different.

    I'd just cheat and start with Enter Sandman.
