Thanks, Silent.  I agree on the bells and whistles.  I enjoy seeing and hearing them, but what I like best is the player and instrument - and even more if the instrument is home made.

You're are a CBGers CBGer old savings and loan pal. Because everything said and done,bells and whistles and electric add-ons aside, what it really comes down to is what a man can do with just the basic homemade instrument---and you inspire us all. This one is a pure joy to watch. And who knew about that beautiful warbling whistle you got, too?

Do you know this whistling version of Debussy Arabesque #1? It's kinda magical. You got the kinda whistleskills to do it, I think...

Thanks Phil and RTZ.  I guess I need to look up cakewalk.  Fun and easy, I think.
