Make sure you keep that Taylor in a case and humidified in the winter - dry air will wreak havoc on a solid spruce top.
Thank you! This website strikes again... shopping for a Taylor hard case and D'Addario Humidipaks to keep the humidification up.

Thanks @Lurch i scored a hard case (from Taylor) that came in a giant box from Amazon. Wife was all like “what did you buy?!”

I also picked up the D'Addario humidity packets and dropped the hanging bag across the d &g strings and into the sound hole. Other single back behind the top of the neck behind the tuning pegs.

I think it’s actually helped to hold tuning a little better and swear it sounds better. Thank you again for the advice!

YW! You reminded me to get my brood humidified. That pack in the head/neck area is important too, I had a fretboard shrink and take lacquer off the fret-ends.

Your acoustic guitar journey sounds awesome! Congrats on the Taylor 213 ce. It's a fantastic guitar choice! Learning through Fender Play and YouTube is the way to go! Marty Music and Rick Beato are top-notch resources for sure.
I've been on a similar path, and those online resources are a game-changer. Marty Music and Rick Beato are absolute legends when it comes to guitar lessons. You're in good hands with them!
Also, I stumbled upon some happy birthday chords recently. I thought it would be a fun way to play for family and friends on special occasions. Can't wait to surprise them with a personalized serenade!

I've played for 40+ years. Mainly acoustic. Have a Martin D28 that is from the late 80s. Played in bands over the years but not much in the past 15+ years. Got back with a garage band and started playing electric. Have Strat and Tele. Got my chops back somewhat and have learned some new stuff. Chords and fingering no problem. It took me months to get used to playing with a pick again.
