Hey Reb! It's good to hear that Maestro Robert and I aren't the only players who are enjoying the wonders of the Hagstrom Swede! I bought a Super Swede in black glossy last year from Amazon.com (got it for $476--that's $200 off the regular discount price--sweet!!).

This baby is simply gorgeous and plays and sounds like a dream. And you are spot-on about the neck--straight as an arrow. It's one of my very favorite guitars. Good choice!

Hello, Robert and fellow Dolphinstreeters! I'm currently using the Line 6 POD Farm UX2, and I'd love to begin digitally recording some pieces with it. What software would you recommend to use, and where might I obtain some some good beginner's tutorial(s) for it?

Thanks and happy fretting!


Electric Guitars / Re: Les Pauls

Hey guys and gals! Have any of you played an Agile guitar? I have several Agile Les Paul "copies," they're made in South Korea, and for my money ($400 - $450) they are the best value hands down! Of all my guitars, they are my favorites.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Epi Les Pauls, too (I have several of them also), but the Agiles, I feel, are just a better value: ebony fingerboards, great pups, Grover tuners, excellent finishes and workmanship, and a lower price say it all for me. I have never had a problem with them. Check 'em out!

And as far as the Gibson Les Pauls, well, they, I feel, aren't the value that they once were. No way I"m paying their extortionist prices for Les Pauls that aren't that much better than my Agiles or my Epi's; certainly not $1,000+ better. And like many of you, I do not buy guitars for investment, I buy 'em to play 'em!

Hello zagatron1! Is that axe in the photo by chance an Agile AL-2500 Albino?! I have one too, and it is my favorite of all my guitars! A great axe indeed! You've got good taste my friend!!

Hi Robert! Hey, I'm LOVING that Hendrix Chord riff right at the outset of the video! But I've a question: How do you mute the strings when you switch from the E7#9 chord to the single notes on the E and A strings? I'm having an incredibly difficult time trying to play that great riff without the strings buzzing.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thanks for another challenging and satisfying piece of guitar goodness!

Hello Robert! I love this lick! But I'm having difficulty in playing the strumming part. I can't seem to figure out how to properly strum the chord.

What's the strumming pattern: down-down-up-down-up, or what?

Thanks for another great lick, and another challenge to help us play better!
