thanks A.D. this is a six string. short, 23'' scale. i'd like to use heavier strings, but.....may be too tight, standard tuning for a six string short scale? aedgbe? i'll check out your blog, thank you. still need to figure out your hardy curdy thing. i see the buttons on the side, but......it does seem similar to a music box? just need some time to really check it out. i assume the strings are plucked bu those "rods", what is on top that actually plucks the strings? i've wanted to make some sort of git like that. i have to send you some pics of my unusual musical instruments. just hard to contact you. can you send me a message, and i can reply, off the main grid......
I know what small shops are like. Mine is about big enough to hold my six foot long workbench and have room to work at one side. There is not much room for tools & parts storage, but I like to be there.
Haha thanks Andries. A Bear with a Slow Paw blues. I like it! Thanks for always being so supportive and for your kind words. Means a lot to me. Dani isn’t allowed to tickle me. I’m too ticklish haha. Take care and thanks again friend.
Hi Andries, Sorry about the delay in answering your comment as I was on a week long Road Trip in this great country down under, Yes!, #329 is all free recycled Australian Hardwood, all the lettering is Wood Burning and the Pictures are Laser Printer Polycrylic transferred, Frederick is my Great-Grandfather, obviously of Indigenous Australian Heritage, and all my Headstocks have a Ring Hole in them for practical storage.
Cheers and thanks for taking the time to look and Comment :-)
Thanks Andries. This virtual fun really is fun! I like your poster and great videos. The bright lights of Monterey glow on the Western Horizon in early morning. Looking forward to shaking your hand on Friday Feb. 1. Less than a week away! Safe travels. ... Dave
Thank you my friend! Indeed a fine year of great music, collaborations, and comments of support and inspiration. Your the real deal and I always look forward to listening to you and reading your feedback. I wish you the very best this season, and a fantastic new year A.D!
AD thank you so much and best wishes to you for a safe and Happy New Year. Yes you are so right the holidays tend to bring out the worse in people. I think a lot of it is the commercialization of the holidays. I am trying to write a song about how the business world and their greed have taken all the joy out of Christmas and the holidays. All it is to them is a way of making more money. Anyhow that is a whole nother story. You have been a lot of help to me on here with your support and hints. I have the utmost resepct for you and the others on here. Thanks again
