@Peer Thank you, I will look into that stool. I may need to order from overseas depending on cost or availability. We don't have a proper guitar store here or much music store. Most music stores are those that sell audio CDs for sale and may have a few boxes of guitar strings on the wall for sale as well.
My new one is the 1st string, its start a fine and small piece fraying off around the 2nd fret (new strings from previous owner of the guitar just $20 cheapies
) So I'll have to look at bringing strings in halfway around the world to pay 1/3rd the local going price. Now I just need a decent recommendation of string. Its not a concert guitar but the Yamaha has decent enough sustain and resonation capability. Lights are out and probably heavy as I'm not in it for volume right now. But would appreciate anyone's advice to decent pack or two of strings to try out for variety.
@Chris Welcome aboard, some of us are trying to catch up as well. I think if we fall behind, so long as we keep at it, that's what counts even if we end up with locked post threads by the time we catch up with materials.
