Trying my Regal Resonator lap style. Low action so I’ve got some noise. Should I raise the action?

Sweet playing and sounding reso, Dave. Some buzz is good character. Like a little vocal rasp.

Thanks Richard. I’m in the standard Dobro tuning. From bass to treble: GBDGBD. I learned that tuning back in my art school days. It’s simple to tune from a guitar in standard tuning. Try it, you’ll like it.

Sweet as she gets! That’d be a fun song to play with and sing to! Great melody and vibe Dave, Cool Hand Dave. How you got her tuned, might try that myself, your inspiring!
