Buggy - it’s wood from an old produce crate. Recorded in the Barage (garage bar).

Three days in, Wow, you’ll be one of the best around here in no time! Keep those wolves rollin!

Wow, sounds more like 3 months or eve 3 years.   It sounds good and looks like your form is good.   One thing that helps me is to drag my index finger lightly on the strings.  Not everyone does it, but it helps reduce rattle and extraneous noise.  I could not tell for sure if you were doing that.  

HAVE FUN!

Hey Clint I loved it great slidin' & cool sounding fretless build well done.

Real good Clint. Your #1 sounds authentic 30’s blues box slide. I love it!
