    And just spent some quality time with a very nice 1940 Martin D-18. Wow was that beautiful. I have lots more to see and play, but that one will be on the brain.

    Staying at the ever-funky SoBro Guesthouse, by the way. Spinning some Johnny Mathis for my lady. ;)

    One of my favorite things to do on planet earth is hang with my sweetie at Roberts Western World. Listen to the boys play, drink cherry cokes and eat mushroom Swiss burgers.

    Well, the outfit just needed a more famous name . . . something like "Tony Sims." :D

    Glad you're having fun in Nashville Tony, even if it's in the rain. The good news is that there are plenty of great indoor places for entertainment . . . and not just a few great musicians. The number seems to have gone up by one more this week.

    Yeah, depending on how long you're in town, you should have decent weather. It's next week that there will be a threat of rain every day.

    BTW, is this just a fun trip, or are you working on something? I know you were in town not that long ago, and as I recall, you were working on something. Just curious.

    Those Martins are just beautiful guitars. I have a HD-28 (in pretty poor condition) and a D-41 in good condition. The tone of both of them is just, just, just very good.

    But I'm not allowed to die until I score a new OM-28.

    I must score a new OM-28 before the inevitable day of reckoning.

    Seventy next August. Time's running out.

    By the way, I feel this compulsion to acquire a Gibson dreadnought and an LP. Of course, there are other essential instruments. Possibly another Gretsch? lol
