Hi all.My problem is when I was posting the description on how I made my one stringer I could not make paragraphs beyond a certain character limit.That led me to have to count back letters and keep renaming words .I had to split it into short sections.It looks kind of weird on the page.I have seen others post on the site and they seem to be able to run off longer descriptions without this problem.Am I missing something basic?Enlighten me with thine wisdom...See More
I first learned of the concept of home made diddley bows/guitars etc through watching Seasick Steve on Later With Jools Holland some years ago and later in 2015 when i stumbled upon various sites including this one .The blues has always manifested itself in my life over the years in one way or another in the form of health issues/unemployment etc and the old adage about 'livin' the blues is no less true than it was in say,the 1930's.I attempted to build my first diddley bow with a cylindrical wooden box,a pine rail from an old bed headrest and some galvanised wire but various things failed.This made me research things more thoroughly online.I think I prefer to make improvements on the three instruments I have rather than keep building more and more.I have made one amplifier also to attempt to create distortion.I have been a fan of the blues for over 20 years but also like folk/rock and even some country.I can also play a bit of harmonica but not much blues.I have sourced materials from bargain/charity shops and whatever is lying around.The best challenge is trying to learn ANY tune on these instruments.
