"Great job Karl! That's one of those tunes I'd like to build some speed on, along with several dozen others (too many tunes, not enough "free time"!) I don't know the fellow playing mandolin, but kudos to him, too. The way he…"

Heya Karl, I enjoyed all your videos! You were asking about my Thompson guitar - I really love it, I'm not sure how to compare this one with the one Robert Shafer has, I didn't get to play his hardly at all. Mine looks almost identical to Robin K's, except his is a "Thompson", where mine is a "Bob Thompson" (Bob's son made Robin's). They sound almost identical. I don't remember for sure, I think I gave $2600 for it. My only complaint at this point is the action is a tiny bit high up near the nut - I will probably make my own bone nut & saddle for it when I get the chance, and adjust the action a bit.

You gonna do Echoes this year? Barry already called and asked me to room with him - I won't know for sure til the end of this week if I can get that week off, but I'll probably go if I can. I might do Augusta, too, if I can afford it - Robin tells me you will be doing "official functions" there - cool!

"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
