Last night I had more time to get to know her (I need a name for her!). Worked on "Looking for a Lady" by Dan Fogelburg, and Lightfoot's "Anything but Beautiful". I'd worked out some hammer ons and pull offs in the bass part. I don't play melody and harmony, just simple Travis style picking.

What really floored me was the volume! LOUD! I was in a small room, but I've heard my LV in there, and #4 sure seemed louder. Another thing I like is the action - my index and middle fingers have no sense of touch in the tips due to a table saw, and getting the index finger to press down strings can be an adventure. The Lightfoot starts with an Amaj7 with with my index finger on the G string. I have problems a lot with this. With #4 it was a breeze.

To compare, I went to my Martin JC-16W, still my best ax. Action, although low, was not as easy to play. I found my normal problems with my index finger, too.

I won't compare sound - these are very different guitars, one Walnut, and a Jumbo, and #4 is, of course, mahagany and an OM. They will, however, really complement each other!

It's that 12-fret magic. Impossible to explain, but there anyhow!
