"Thanks.  I think I will get a pitch pipe.  I've been playing (acoustic steel string) for close to six years now and being able to tune by ear certainly would be cool.  I've tried to tune and then test with the electronic…"

"It's always good to start out with a pitch pipe to tune your gits when learning to play. It helps train your ear for the notes so you can pick up other places on the fingerboard/fretboard for the same notes at different pitch.  It's…"

"Fingerboard is also a name for it. Those dots can be helpful for learning the where the notes are. Just have to be sure your also training your ears also and not just the eyes so the dots don't become a crutch."

"Thanks.  A friend that learned the double bass originally put dots on the "fret" board (what doe they call it on instruments that aren't fretted?) and once she got more experienced didn't need it.  I've been doing…"

"On fretless gits, I like to make "fret lines" so I can get right to that point. Some learn were to play without visual aids and some can't do without. All my gits are fretted and I've learned to use a slide without the…"

"Another question, I've been leaning heavily towards making my 1st 3 string cbg a fretted one.  I play a fretted guitar and don't really play by ear as much as I'd like to so leaning to a fretted cbg as that's what I'm…"

"Sure, please send through the links.  I'm leaning towards a six pole pickup, also have liked some of the slimline ones for cbg guitar.  Glad I've not started building yet as the neck height may change depending on the pickup."

"Thanks, I've got a preamp I use for the acoustics that have static pickups in them.  I built this using one of those temp controlled guns you speak of, needs quite a bit for the wires feeding the motors as they pull 20 or 30 amps and much…"

"Thanks, that's the sort of info I was after.  Do you make your own amps? I saw a thread here on a boneafone amp but the links to it were gone / broken.   I've got amp for bass and electric so not desperate but want to make…"
