Hi Big Bad Dom....Still got the UK Nation T shirt that you ordered from me weeks ago. You owe me £11.50 if sending a cheque to G sherbourne 22 The Woodlands lostock Bolton BL6 4JD or £12 if paying by Paypal to Sherb @ntlworld.com
Quick payment would now be appreciated.
Thanks for the info about lacquers from Manchester Guitar Tech. Your amp projects sound very interesting. I've built a couple of DIY amps myself (currently got an LM386 circuit looking for an appropriate container to go into) - so I'd be keen to see any pics of your 2x2 if you can post them. And also interested in those low-voltage valves - what counts as "low"?
Yes, there are quite a few open mic nights in the area, I've been to one or two with a 'orchestra' that I plkay in. It would be nice to take a few cigar box guitars to one or two of them as the instruments certainly seem to attract a lot of interest.
I like your idea of a tricone. One of my future projects will be a biscuit tin guitar.
Thanks for the reply. If you find a decent open mic night, please let me know.
just got back from playing two numbers at a pub in Collingham. They organise an occasional open mic night. I like it because it's fun. Some places that have open mic sessions can be a bit organised and it's like being in a library.
Nice to hear that you are getting into resonators. I have (standard resonator guitars) a Monarch, a pair of Ozarks and a 1964 Dobro.
I think the next open mic is in two weeks from tonight, but I have to work that night, so the next time I shall be able to attend will be the 2nd December I think.
I've often thought of being in touch with you, but I've never quite got around to it. Sorry.
I'd love to have you as a friend as I am trying to promote cigar box guitars wherever or whenever I can. I try to play at an open mic night now and again and also occasionally play a cigar box instrument in a local ukulele orchestra.
Just taken delivery of a few boxes from Tom Tom as home built boxes don't quite have the pizaz that a genuine box has.
The only other cigar boxer that I know is a chap from the above mentioned orchestra who is slowly putting one togethr with help from his class at school.
Anyway, thanks for the invite, great to have you as a friend.
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
