Thank you uncle John, The more I read about Dave the more of an amazing person he seemed to be.

Its always been an ambition  to play an instrument but work got in the way, now retired having been working with wood part of my life I can build and learn to play something I have created, its certainly got a grip on me.

kind regards Chris.

Thanks for the invite Uncle John. I really don’t know what the heck I’m doing in this site - so un tech savvy. I tried to send you a message before but thought if I push “comment” it would then appear here. It didn’t. Maybe you already got my message (maybe more than once). Anyway I wanted to say Corsicana’s a cool enough place. I’m including links to Rope Walker Radio Show Corsicana episode if you’re interested. They’re kinda long (about 20 minutes) good music though.

Thanks for your comments John, I know what you mean about solids, planks of wood with strings, they'll all go quiet when we rely on wind power!
