Howdy Bob,
I was looking over the long list of members when I noticed you are from Peoria.
A long time ago, almost another lifetime it seems.. maybe the late 70's, I went to work at the Powerton Powerhouse in Pekin , after a bad explosion destroyed a portion of the main building.
A bunch of us Ironworkers from Joliet came down for varying times to work on the repairs. One thing I always do is look for a music store in an area when away from home. and I remember going to a guitar shop, in a big old house if I remember rite. I am thinking it was called Applegate Guitars..
I ended up buying an album made by the owners . It is a job to find it but I think I may do so..
anyway, I am wondering if there is a connection, and if it may be another of lifes strange twists that bring the past to the present.

Hello Bob,

I added a long post to your site yesterday ... I hope it also went to your email, because just now, I looked at the post and the little dot on the top-right of the post, and I was curious and hovered my cursor over it, and it didn't say anything ... i clicked it to see if a menu would pop-up, and nope, found out the hard way on your site the <delete> button!!! hahaha

Would you "please" call or email me?  I have permission from Paula in Dick's behalf, I need yours and the other Band Members approval also, and pictures of your choice (or better yet 1 or more pictures of the band together!!!)

My phone is 309-822-8888 ... my eMail is Joe@AUXware.com (my private domain & website). Please call or email me as soon as it is convenient for you :)

Thanks in advance,

-Joe Hatcher

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
