"That’s kool Glenn, I did a Uke with a 7up bottle that came out decent, just needed some bracing under the bridge. I found a table leg with Giraffe print on it yesterday, perfect for an African motif? "

Had to work on this today- in progress 2 string (50lb. mono fish line) git, heat-shrunk pop bottle on top. African/banjo vibe. Old chair back support for neck.

Low-carb us. Been thinking of doing this for years- a Thanksgiving mini-diddley w. C.L. plastic container. Not super loud but quick and fun. .024 wound string, Co2 capsule slide, credit card pick. THANKFUL! -Glenn

Bro Glenn,

I am building a CBG site-not commercial- and answered a question of how I got started with this and the answer is that I have been your fan for a long time and found you on a YouTube link to see what you are up to now.

i posted that YouTube link on my site TunesFromTrash.com and hope you approve of me using it.

My other site is JesusChristExalted.com and I would like to reference your GRRR sitee there, please.

Thank you,

Jack

Glenn: I was impressed by pics put up recently of a 5-gallon bucket bass, and (I think) your name was mentioned by the builder, thanking you for the idea.  Do you have plans for such a bass that you could share?

When is the next time you'll be in the land of "sharp cheddar?"

Glenn,
Thanks for friending me! Beaver Dam native! I'm an Illinois transplant from 74'. Still love cheese! I own an audio studio, I rec. singer/songwriters and recently started recording bands. I re-mixed and mastered Shane's Empty Wooden Box. Shane dropboxed the files and I loaded them in Logic...
