    I like that one Ksiegel. It looks good on you.

    I read that John Hartford got the idea for his stage outfit after seeing Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman) in his bicycle scene.

    Gochugogi, Does your 7 string have an added bass string like George Van Eps', or an added treble string like Lenny Breau's?
    I'll guess it's not an added octave G string like Spider John Koerner's.

    E6 - E G# B C#
