Third Hand Harmonica - Demo for that harp playing dude known as Buggy

"Nice sounding chrom there . . . and good playing Diatonics, though, are not missing any notes. If you can learn to play overblows, all the notes are there. Check out a guy named Howard Levy sometime. He's pretty much the godfather of the…"

"I'd advise against it if you're planning on just selling cigar box guitars. Low profit margin and lack of demand (amidst the general population) are not a successful combo. I know a bit about Branson and Eureka Springs. I've written…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Wal Callaby's discussion We build guitars
"Great work! Oak is highly underrated as a tone wood, as are ash and birch. I sometimes like to get conspiracy minded and decide that the only reason such cheaper woods are given lesser status in the guitar world is because the profit margin is…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Wal Callaby's discussion We build guitars
"Agree 100% There is a lot of hype that comes from guitar companies . . . just like there's a lot of hype that comes from car companies, food companies, sports companies, or any other industry under the sun.  Moreover, if we're being…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Robert Bryan's discussion Mounting resonator cones
"I personally wouldn't use the type of cone that screws to the top. The whole point of a reso cone is that it floats on the lip of a tone ring (or sound well). Not being connected - screwed on glued to anything - allows the cone to do what the…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Sean Murphy's discussion Three-string guitar with six strings?
"yeah . . . I've seen quite a few of them over the years (have built several . . . both cigar box and bent-wood pieces). They're a ton of fun with a diatonic scale.  Cool sound. I like leaving the bass string single, as a drone"

Blind Doughboy replied to Taffy Evans's discussion 10 minute spokeshape sharper jig
"No . . . it's a very good idea.  It reminds me of a jig that I've seen used to correctly trim the angled sides of a Savart, trapezoidal violin (so they fit perfectly with the back and front pieces)."

Blind Doughboy replied to Bill's discussion Why Not A Major Triad?
"I'd venture a guess that most CBGs are tuned to some sort of open tuning. There are countless variations that approximate a chord, such as GDG, AEA, DAD, EBE.  Makes it very easy if you want to just strum along and play basic slide. But,…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Ideas for supporting nuts
"Yup . . . that almost always works. No need to reinvent the wheel on this. I generally use a zero fret, but glue a bone or plastic nut against the end of the fingerboard for use as a string guide. Prior to the gluing, test fit the nut both for width…"
