This thing

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 7:30am 7 Comments

I guess as far as addictions go this is not a bad one to have. I had surgery yesterday morning and was in the cellar laying out out a rat rod build last night. Now I'm up early and since I'm off work, guess what I'm anxious to get back to??  I don't have much in the way of power tools so not too concerned about being doped up a bit, feeling creative somehow.

Good Morning Bluesheart

Hey man great music - nice vocals and playing - wanted to say Thank You for your comment on the changes made to Black Brick House due to Uncle John's suggestion - I really appreciate all you guys and your constructive criticism and good eyes

Thank you for the comment Bluesheart, if you check the latest photos of the Black Brick House you will see a great improvement as I took Uncle Johns suggestion to heart and made the necessary change to the bridge support and it changed the whole dynamics/looks of the build to a much cleaner and better looking CBG - Glad to hear you are doing ok after the heart attack - just took a look through your pictures - you do some nice work and the songs you do are good as well - have a great day

Hey Bh, I don't know about impedance, but they make a pill for that. I have a very basic understanding of electronics, I read this instructable:

http://m.instructables.com/id/Convert-Any-Radio-Into-a-Guitar-Amp/

. It's pretty easy as long as the radio has a volume "pot" and not micro switches. It's such a cool, easy thing to do. And its seemless, you barely notice the jack. It's cool that the radio will still work normally too!

Thanks Bluesheart,it turned out well considering I picked up the wrong can and sprayed it gloss black instead of clear lacquer

Hi Bluesheart. Well I just came to check out your page after seeing you around the site and wow you've got some awesome music. Great harmonica, really strong vocals and, of course, that CBG rounds everything off and ties it together wonderfully. Lovely stuff indeed. Thanks for sharing with us :)

Hi Bluesheart ,good to meet you too :-)                                                     Just checked our your Dulcimer video , sounds real nice .... John Boy had a Dulcimer on season 1 of the Waltons ,though I bet he bought his at Ike Godsey's store lol :-D
