Thanks Adries! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and all the best in the new year!

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!

You are welcome Andries, I enjoy your styles of playing and also appreciate your friendship and kindness! Merry Christmas!

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

1930 pie dishes sound ok too and you can put a magnetic pup under them with a ni mag as they are steel I think.. (unless they are tin?)

I think I could almost turn anything into something and get a tune out of it.. it just might not be good.. love that resonator thanks for sharing sorry for my spaming your page..

Bugs Vibrocoil works away from strings or under them too for an acoustic and electric mixed sound.. buzzer coil with NI mag and steel screw
