Here it is! My first video on YouTube of me playing the 1961 Robert Bouchet Sitka Spruce/Walnut guitar.
I shot this with my iPhone this afternoon, and after several takes I got what I was after.
Now, if I could only make time to practice on a regular basis, I might do this guitar justice.
It really is a fine guitar-good separation and evenness of notes, a wonderful singing voice - this is the kind of guitar that makes you want to practice on a daily basis.
This guitar received a wonderful reception from Alex Komodore, guitar professor at Metropolitan State University, Denver, Colorado; Warren Haskell, guitar educator and former director of the guitar program at California State University, Chico; and the members of the Boulder Guitar Society, Boulder, Colorado.
Here are some photographs of the guitar.
