Hey folks, coming up fast on the adelaide international guitar festival now.

got asked to do a stint in the 'meet the makers' slot, so on friday (aug 10th) i'm there, with jimbo to wrestle the crowds, and steer the rowdy ones back to the bar - or give them a guitar.

gonna talk about pickups and pickup making, the joy to the world that is cigar box guitar, and do some demos of various pickups in various instruments through various amps!

steve pederson is going to play for the crowds, and show us all how to do it really.  (seriously, i gave him a fretted 3-stringer the other day, he has never played one before, and in seconds he was getting stuff out of that skinny neck i could only dream of playing - 'bastard' says i!)

all in all i'm hoping for a fine time for all, and we are just around the corner from the coopers bar, which can only help. really.

hopefully we can get a few other aussie CBG makers there too, and we can show these guitar afficionardos, that they're using too many strings.
