A short little tune using my Washburn parlor guitar after it came back from the repair shop.

Thanks, Jamie. Basically testing out the Washburn. I'd never recorded with it before. Not bad sound for a $250 guitar. I used an AT4047 about 10-12 inches from the neck joint except the little solo spots it was about 3 inches away. Also fingers on everything except a pick on those spots. I broke the nail off on my middle finger so it was weird playing with nails and skin. B string pretty light sounding. Open D tuning.

Lovely. Fabulous sound. I saw a little Washburn that sounded fabulous a while back. It was 12 fret and had a slotted headstock.

Thanks, all.

Andy, that's exactly what this one is - 12-fret with slotted headstock. I got it on eBay and it was a mess. I took it to my friend (a luthier and a certified Martin repairman) and he despaired on first look. But he said he'd take a closer look later. He called me back and said "doable". Intonation is still a tiny bit iffy in spots, but 2.5 million times more playable now.

Loved it Bruce! There was a bird singing outside of my window and I thought for a second that it was part of the song.

oh yea, i dig that...
the opening reminds me of a zep tune,
but the melody takes it to a unique zone.

it's sweet, and bittersweet.

makes me want a parlor.
