Well here's what my guitar sounds like without an amp...it's tuned Open E. I've only been playing since May, learning off some youtube videos, so go easy on me!

Hey thanks, Shane! Also just started learning 'Gimme Shelter" in Open E as well- it's got some cool picking

Thank-you too Bruce.
And thank-you Peter- yeah, been practicing! I'll practice some more on the Dulcimer maybe and upload a video...I did a free online course last year from Berklee College of Music through Coursera and did a song on the Dulcimer,think it's on youtube, but my singing needs work! We were just graded on the writing!

Thank-you Silent Jim- I was hoping it was recognizable! I guess it is one of the more common songs in open E. She does sound bright! Yes, have to practice singing too!

Sounds great! And you're apparently a fast learner... Been playing since May, you say? Not bad, not bad at all! I'd like to see more vids of your instruments...

WOW.   Big sound acoustic, resonator sound and playing good.   Very nice to hear.

Hey, thanks, CTW! I thought it did too, but I wasn't sure because it's my first one!

Hey! That has sure got a good sound to it!

Hey thanks Rooster, Wes, Pick & James! I've been practicing. Good news, my daughter told me today she's giving me her old amp, hasn't used it in 2 years- don't know what kind it is or anything, but hey, should be a lot better than what I got! Just need a cord for it is all
