In Happier News

My friend, "X" (psst! He hates his name, Xavier) came over and tried out my new La Patrie Motif guitar for me to hear.  He reports it to have a wonderful feel, the left hand, even the barring is superbly easy and the tone is excellent for the size and price range. 

It does sound more like a 19th century "romantic era" guitar than my quite good modern guitar does and, when comparing 1960 dollars to today's, costs about a third the price.   The cast comes off next week so I will be trying it out and writing a review.   I would recommend it to anyone who wants to either begin guitar or who would like to have a guitar that sounds more like the pre-modern style classical guitar that has come to dominate the field.
