Re: RIP Andy Fraser (reply)
I'd never heard that before. All I've ever heard of Free is "All Right Now" and the reference to them as Paul Rodger's stepping stone to Bad Company. That was really nice, and that bass has nice bounce and pop. Thanks.

A tale from the old world: I had four hercules stands and their grips got sticky. Kind of a rubber that turned to a fluid. So I called the german distributor, Musik Meyer, who was the former distributor for Ovation and Takamine in the...

Nice to hear, and the complete opposite sort of treatment I got from the customer-no-service department at Ultimate. Not only would they not repair it under warranty, they wouldn't even sell me a replacement part. I was thrilled.

Re: Most iconic flatpicked songs ever, pick 3 instrumentals and 3 with words: (and include your favorite version if you like) (reply)
This is, for me, a Doc Watson "pick 6", most of which are already mentioned here. If we want to stray a bit, I like Barenburg's "Magic Foot" from the 'Moving Pictures" album. Simple, clean, makes me smile.
