You're in good company John. Keeping it real. The wheels of the the God's grind slowly but exceedingly fine.You inspire me, keep the train rollin'.

It and I need some help, Daniel.

Comment by Daniel Walter on October 12, 2019 at 3:15pm

can you turn up the treble? i'm digging it. did you make it? some of my instruments are made to be played in a jam session, adding the missing tones. high or low, add to the flow.

Thanks, Bob.  You just kind of led me into something that amazes me.  Some times, I am a leap learner.    I don't get it,  I don't get it.  (And on and on and on)  And suddenly, I"VE GOT IT!

I've tried to play with the instrument upright like Dave does.  It felt like and unnatural act.  Your words made me try it again and I CAN DO IT,  Some.  Now, I need to make a longer scaled instrument and try some more.

I was watching Daves marvelous Hobo fiddle build before watching your vid and was joyfully relaxed and educated... and now... up and ready to go again! Nice job.  Keep on fiddling!

LOL, Danny.  I play in the basement den, hoping sound does not travel well and that bullets don't reach me.

Thank, Andries.  Have you tried a fiddle yet?  2 strings seem easiest.

Thanks, Clarky.  Yes, I built this one with a cut down 2x4 neck.  It was a prototype.  I built a much nicer on later.  But the prototype plays the easiest.

Sounds pretty good to me.  Did you build this Uncle J?  Nice job either way!

My sincere apologies on the dog, AGP.    I know you will miss him.
