Hoping to move over some posts from the "Ladies League" -- would folks mind reposting it here?

There were some great discussions starting over on the "Ladies League" re playing slide, etc. Can you all copy/paste and repost to keep those items saved? Great stuff! Thanks!

Hi all, Skeesix here. I have a lot of experience with building, playing, pickups etc. and I'm happy to help with questions. Check out my website http://skeesixcbgs.com/ and go to the blog section to see some of my projects.

Diane, I'll see if I can figure out how to do a video for slide for you. (The slide video has been reposted under the Women-made Videos and Teaching discussion).
I think that we need to put you up under the "Accomplished Women Luthiers" section! I've been interested in doing my own pups and the information that you provide is fabulous! Also, I noticed in your video that you set your action what appears to be medium to lower. Is that accurate? I prefer mine around that level but have often read that if you want to play "good" slide, that it needs to be high. Any thoughts on that?
