anyone have any opinions on which ones are best for sound, best for traveling? im thinking in particular of the Martin and Gibson.

also, any suggestions on cheap fiddles?

depends on what kind of traveling your talking about...I wouldn't spend more than a $100 on a guitar I was going to hitch with. I have a Samsick Silvertone elec/acoustic that I paid $70 for has low action and easy to play and sounds decent through my little 9vlt amp... and its red!

If your driving around in your Grandmas stolen Impala and don't have to worry about it getting tossed around like an ugly hooker then by all means get a Gibson

good points. i once had a fiddle for a short time. was only able to get John Henry down, but it didn't seem over the top difficult if i stuck with simple old timey songs.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
