Hi All,

Thought I'd drop this and do the introduction thing. Its not a cbg, its a chordophone nonetheless.

Some people work faster than others, haha. Not funny though.

Welcome to the Nation Ian.  Great fun with these things we build.  We have some  friends here in So. California with a band named "Craic Haus".  I know what you're talking about.  :)>

Hi I'm Ian from Scotland.I have been hovering round this site as well like a wee midgie aroond a jeely piece.I have been building diddly bows etc for around two years but only have three complete instruments.I prefer to try to improve on what I have built.I started getting interested  after seeing Seasick Steve on t v. Somehow I discovered the ins and outs/history of building online and realised the potential this could have.

.Take note - I don't have a massive workshop or garage (no car) only my dining table in the spare bedroom,some basic power/hand tools and a very tolerant partner(either that or a cold damp shed with no power supply/lighting).I have built a panjo/canjo thing,a cardboard/wood diddley and an all wood resonator diddley all one stringers oh and also a distortion amp.I love/live the blues/traditional folk/rock/some country and I am fascinated by this whole thing.I have extensive DIY experience and enjoy creating things from bits and pieces and consider myself to be quite artistic.

The blues for me/partner comes from constant setbacks especially in steady work/health/politically/national football team obviously and other bad shit.But there's humour in (almost) everything and I am enjoying the adventure.I want to progress to uploading photos/videos etc and having good 'craic' with one and all.
