Thanks Reg. Yes I made this one and a fun build it was too. Thanks also for your kind words on the playing. I've been practicing those finger pickings for three years now (hopefully doing better in the more recent videos) as adversely I've never been able to quite catch on with a plectrum. Total opposites. I hope you're able to get to where you want to be with the fingerpicking. I somewhat envy those who can use their feet/legs to play a stomp box but life is about making do with what we've got at our disposal, right?

Thanks again and all the best my friend :0)

This is a splendid experiment in why I rather enjoy resonators, they just sound so good, but there again, I am so biased..... did you make these/those/it ???

I envy the way you are using your fingers, I have spent years holding a conventional plectrum, now I can't, so there is a mighty learning curve ahead....!!

Thanks Derek. Now that's a compliment and a half. Is there any significance between which foot taps first? Is your left easier pleased and when it gets going your right looks over and says "Seriously? You're tapping to that?" Lol. Hazy morning fogginess/brain-haze going on with me I think. Thank you kind sir. You've made me smile now.

Thanks James O. Having bags of fun on it and actually have it on my lap as I'm typing now lol. Just had a very rough go at playing over some backing tracks but lots of practicing needed to make it sound half decent.

I'm considering making it two guitars due to the size factor and stretch mostly but I think I'm going to wait until I've tried it in octave tuning and put a guitar strap on it to see if I can make it more comfortable first.

We shall see but having lots of fun for definite. Thanks again James O. Much appreciated.

Thanks Andries. I've wanted a double neck for ages. Didn't know it would be such a stretch though. I'm happy with it as is though; like you said it's different sounds.

Not sure why Diamond Bottlenecks isn't responding. Very strange. Then again I've always called the workshop and spoken with Ian the head honcho. You might try that, I know he's not much into technology lol.

Thanks for the comment my friend and for taking the time to watch. Much appreciated!

Do like the Sound of that rezzo ,But by the looks of it , if it was me ill undo them, and then you got two for the price of One, dono because of the reach or size, the 3-5-7 markers are fine for playing, and the top one gives you a more Pure Tone somehow , that will bee for your Love of Bass ill bett, been trying to order a Diamond Slide but they dont react to email that quickly!! easy does it Bear! Thanks

I know what you mean. Do cats really need a reason to slap you? Probably not.

Lol Paul. Our cats just had to look at us and we knew we'd fallen short of their expectations. They used to literally shout at us if we'd stayed out longer than they liked. Felt like living back home with the parents lol.
