Hi Slim

Thanks for the friend invite. Having to do a bit of paying work today on a boat! Got 2 CBg's to finish & a pile of bits arrived this morning. Also got a Hacker transistor radio to fix & get running as an amp. Happy days!

Cheers Keith

Hi Slim,

So you are originally a Bromsgrove man. I was born in Oldbury Worc's and lived in Dudley until I was about 22. Done all kinds of work from Mountain Guide / Instructor to a small craft business here in Cumbria. I worked as a conductor on the old backenders in Jarrow in the 70's Pickled onions on the top deck, a huge jar passed arround and emptied in no time . Those were the days Slim. Cheers chum.

Im wit Beard.

Hi Slim 

Thanks for the invite and the positive comment. Clawhammer banjo is my usual thing so now I have put this contraption together I have to find how  to get some blues out of it.

I browsed you photos and it looks like you have been making interesting stuff for a while. Nice work Slim. 

Im wit Beard, Cumbria.
