Hey Fellow Paddy! :))

Thanks for the friend request. Not quite finished my first build yet. Waiting for postie from C.B. Gitty to arrive. I think I may have a problem though. Mine is 3 string fretless and followed all instructions from Gittyman's Manual but I think it was more suited to a fretted CBG. I think the string height may be too high for slide. Have not strung it up as yet but as instructed I will be using 5/16" diameter bolt bridge and 3/16" bolt nut. Worried if I use smaller nut to get closer to neck the strings may come in contact with the top of the neck wood when I add the retention screws. ????

One book I read suggested that you practice "down" strokes and then practice "up" strokes until you could get a comparable sound from each. Then try to not think about it when you perform but let instinct take over. (The book was "Blues Guitar for Dummies" which is actually a great book despite the insulting title.)

I seem to have gotten into the habit of using "up" strokes to emphasize melody notes, but that isn't planned--just came from that "instinct" the writer was talking about.
