Hi there,HRH here,I know I look   simply  a shocking mess don't I ! -all part of the image but it's not easy to shake off that royal box people tend to put me in. I have just watched your video playing the diddly bow-I didn't realize one string could sound as good as three or four.Is that you playing amazing grace too?Well bye for now-this is the first message I have sent on here to anyone-take me a while to get the hang of it.
