"An Okie From Muskogee and a AC DC shirt, gotta love this country! Seems like a classical guitar width on that neck, maybe the angle. Good job on the video, sounds nice Danny!"

"I like that old relic geetar.  Yup, good job.  There used to be a guy named Kinky Friedman from Texas and he did this song, 'Ass-hole from El Paso. '"

The history behind them and the history behind a diddley bow. I love the bluesy sound of them.

string tension

Posted on April 12, 2018 at 4:09am 7 Comments

I just recently finished a 3 string and it seems like the strings are a little hard to fret. I have it set up on a 25 inch scale, if I move the bridge toward the neck will it make the strings easier to fret without sacrificing tone quality? It plays great with a slide. I am also wondering if I might have the frets set too low. I am using an 8/32 bolt for the bridge and a bit smaller bolt for the nut.

In open G tuning is there a trick to make tuning the low G string  easier. I am using a A string for it

Great! I use an iPad, Apple product. If your Mac, it might be a bit different. Publish to YouTube in HD as much as possible. Once you have a video at YouTube, as it’s playing, press the share logo, then press copy. Then come to your page here at the Nation, and in the comment section press video. Then press the line in the middle to bring up you keyboard for writing a message. Press the line again until you see an oval or line that has the word paste in it. Press that, it should enter your YouTube link, then press enter comment. Let me know if it works, might have to fiddle with it a bit depending on your computer or whatever. Good luck, happy videoing.

Danny, do you have a YouTube account? If not, you need to set one up, it’s pretty easy! That’s a good point to start. Any problems, give me a shout. It’s really pretty straight forward. Then your only a few moves from publishing on YouTube, and it’s real easy then to post here at the Nation.
