Beautiful!  I tried Orkney tuning once with a top hat...didn’t work! Man on a mission playing, fun to watch and listen Vinnie!

Vinnie, there are some nice videos on that cool Orkney tuning.

Hey, chit head!  Is dat a CBG?  Hmm?   You might fool some of the people, but I am pretty sure that is a FACTORY git.  

Orkney?   You are making that up.  Sure sounding pretty on this one, V.  I like it a lot.  Looking healthy and happy too.  Blessings.  I am going to go look up Orkney.
