Wonder how long that's been there. I just discovered channel 6037 on the Dish. Bluegrass music 24/7, no commercials!!

I don't know about Dish Network, but we have a whole slew of channels at the highest numbers of different kinds of music, bluegrass being one of them. I forget about them sometimes, matter of fact, think I will listen to some while I do my chores around the house, thanks for reminding me. :) (I have DirecTV)

Gosh, Les, with more than 6,037 channels to search;
I am surprised you ever find anything!!
I am a simple girl,
that would drive me crazy;
takes a tough person to wade through all those. LOL

The highest number on the sateolite dish is 9500 (I think) but there ain't 9500 channels. Maybe 200 available to me including about 70 music channels.

I gots me one of them Yapanese Martins and I don't apologize for it.
My fingers are in mid-summer form with callouses a half inch thick.
Course if you'd like to get one of them D18s or whatever headed my way I'd be much obliged to ya.

You can have a guitar made better than the Martin,That sounds better too.But the majority will pick a Martin just for the name> I bought a 140 buck Yamaha in 76 that had as good of sound as a D 25 but it did not have the name on the peghead so the sound does not count. I have one made in Finland as well built as any but it is not a Martin. They made a goood reputation and folks know A Martin is valuable anywhere.

The Yamaha FG-335 that I have is about 25 or 30 years old. Can't remember exactly when it was given to me.
But it has a huge sound. I've played many Martins that didn't sound half as good. The only thing I don't like about it is the thickness of the neck and it's not really as wide as I would like a neck to be. Lots of very knowledgeable people who have listened to it and played it say "Don't ever get rid of that guitar".
A friend who spends a lot of time in the Philippines says you can buy great guitars and lots of other stuff there for little or nothing.

Bought a brand new Gibson 30 years ago. Played because I was lonesome. Happy now and haven't played in years. Finger tips are as tender as a baby's bu77
