Mighty fine! I have one as well and it is a cannon. I'm only 60 miles from the Gallagher shop, so it's a regular hang for me.:-) Btw, I am working with Gallagher on a new model that I think will be wonderful. A classic slope shoulder with special bracing and bridge plate. I'll let it out of the bag once we finish it and it goes into production.

I'll be bringing it along to Kamp week 1 this year. I picked it out after playin Ol Hoss. With that sound in my ear this 71 Special seemed to shout out at me "Take me home and name me Lil Hoss". So I did.

(You did a mighty fine BMR on Ol Hoss by the way.)

Lordy! 60 miles from the Gallagher shop and I'd be broke (and livin in the dog house with all my guitars)

Up strums

Hey FPers!Could use some advice, or just start a discussion, on the merits of strum patterns that go both up and down, versus Boom-Chuck with straight down strokes.I bring this up as I have recently broken the habit of resting my wrist on the bridge after many years of struggle.  The result is that I am faster, cleaner, and am now able to play with a heavier pick.  I now imitate the Brian Sutton model with a pinky posted to the pick guard.While this has made my speed on fiddle tunes and…See More

"I got my Wegen Bluegrass Picks and started using them - and I can really see the difference - very happy I made the switch!.  With the beveled edge, this forces me to maintain the correct grip rather than the way the medium pick was moving in…"

David Wayne Martin replied to matthew's discussion What is the best right hand position for flatpicking
"I have noticed that others have shared what I have experienced - when it is a fiddle tune or lots of single string runs, I drop the pinky - but when its straight rhythm with strums - I go free hand.  I really like the way my D-28 rings out when…"
