Over the Waterfall on Cigar Box Fiddle

Most of us are very open to all levels of playing. Cat beat against a tree sounds like a pretty good song title. I actually know a tune called Nail That Catfish to a Tree that I might play on my next fiddle build! Here it's played by the guy who wrote it.

Hey Bobby, thanks for the friend request. I like the builds you posted. Now we need to hear them! You may have noticed I'm more into old style acoustic instruments than many folks around here but I still love cranked up blues style sometimes too!

Geese Bobby. No idol here. Thanks for the kind words though. Your comment made my day. Otherwise I'd have to face failure. I spent all day wiring an EZ solder amp kit from Guitar Fuel. It was anything but EZ. I have a dead short in my attempt and no amp! So I've ordered a No solder model and will replace my failed junk. Hope your build went better than mine today. .. Dave
