This group looks like the inner sanctum. I think I just heard the crypt door slam behind me as I timidly walked in. As my eyes get accustomed to the inky darkness of this chamber of horrors, I can just barely make out odd shapes lying on operating tables around the room, piles of wires and electronic gizmos, knives, saws, strange tools, and drifting through black room I hear wailing of the Devil himself! What is this place? ..... Something just flew by and brushed my face! BATS! How can I ever get back to safety??
Suddenly, a bright light pierces the darkness, the bat dives at my head, and,..and, ... oh, wait a minute. This is just Ted's basement, and that's not a bat, it's Taxi. Hello guys, glad to be here, and look forward to picking your brains.
I'm getting ready to build a resonator guitar, and thought this might be the place to come, so here I am. Does anyone think a group for resonators only would be worthwhile, or will this place suffice for now? Either way, glad to join you all.
