Nice!  We talked probably 10 years ago about this, when I just got my Epiphone Gibson. The 4 knobs confused me to which did which. I have a fairly cheap Yamaha acoustic that I just had a local tech add an electric pickup too and he tuned up both guitars (sounds cheesy but I didn't wanna touch the acoustic with a hole for the plug) restrung them etc. I was playing for a bit then slowed down a few years ago, picked it back up this year. New found interest.

Love it, can't solo much, campfire guitarist lol. Would love to hear the tone & playing of that, must be a beauty.

and, I just loved the sound of the Yamaha acoustic. Funny, I went in expecting to pay around 400 for a Fender or something, darker woody Wilco sound. But happened to test out the Yamaha and it was more a California Jack Johnson/Janes Addiction sound. Tried playing the others and just came back to it.  It was only 220 at guitar center and I said to the guy 'Am I wrong here, I seem to like this sound better'. I think it suits my style, I dunno. I considered upgrading but don't think I will on that.

I got a relatively cheap classical guitar a few months ago. I have been playing normal acoustic/electric guitar for around 10 years now and I always like how classical guitar sounded and I wanted to try it. The most annoying parts for me right now is I keep going back to electric, keeping my nails kind of long, and sight reading sheet music. I don't understand why classical guitar just doesn't use tab with the rhythm written on it, lute music from back in the 1500s even used tab so I don't understand why the shift happened. I probably should have gotten a bit more expensive one though, the one I am using goes out of tune very quickly. Granted, it has been very humid. I still like it a good deal though.


Yeah Songsterr is really good I have been using that site for years now, when I was younger I brought a ton of tab books, some are pretty funny. The GNR ones for the most part seem right. There are a couple of year parts on the anthology one like the WTTJ end solo starting on the E string and the SCOM solo sounding a touch off (I think). But overall, it isn;t bad. The Slash tab book fixes most of the mistakes. The worst one I own is a Black Sabbath one, Iron Man is in Eb tuning and it has you play the power chords on the third fret on the A string, even though it should be 7th on the E string,  lol just so pointless
