Thank you Professor for your comment. Ya, on a big old resonator guitar, open tunings with all the extra open sympathetic strings ringing against a crisp bottleneck lead, really pushes out a big fat sound. Excellent for the noisy street, subway platform (or on a boat LOL). Enjoy.

Hi Andy,

Back to normal yet? Nope, me neither.

Anyway, in the next couple of days I will be getting all the HGMC stuff straight, so will be sending you the membership packs etc.

Can you drop me an email with your details and I can run everything by you, explain a few bits, and set you on your way

Thanks for taking this on - be great to spread the load a little

All the best
