Hey Ian, So I've tried to download the motorhead tracks from your page but they don't show the track names? Don't know if I'm doing it right? Maybe I'm missing something? All the tracks sound great though, GREAT JOB EVERYONE! wish I could play that well I'm still just learning, played a bit when I was a kid. Any help with getting the tracks would be great thank you

Love ALL the contributions to the Tribute Album! Well done one and all - especially to Ian for pulling it all together.

Hey, Ian. I was wondering while we lost power for 4 days. Now that this project is finished, how about a cbg tribute to Black Sabbath?  I've worked out an arrangement of War Pigs for my simpatico cbg. In light of Tony Iommi's cancer scare, I thought a tribute was DEFINITELY in order. If it's good enough for Motörhead, ... Your thoughts? CHEERS!

Hi Ian, thanks for the update. As for the "right" postion, I would suggest to take an advantage of the slim height - just shift it around below the strings and fix it wherever it suits you best. They should arrive soon, eager to get your comment on it ;-)

Hey, Ian. I tried posting this message on the Motörhead page, but it didn't work. Just checking to see if you got my submission, which I posted a little over a week ago. CHEERS, mate!

Hey Ian,

I just this minute got the fretboards through the letterbox. Thanks a lot, they've got a lovely grain on them that look the jackal's tackle.

Hey Ian!! I hear there might be one fabulous guitar on the completion line!  Robby told me the other day!  Internet was down because of a casualty. Crazy OP the last couple days.  Sad when one moment can change the course of history for a young lad. I've been crazy busy with operations in the COC, but that there is why we're here.  Hope all is going well with you- I feel bad I haven't talked to you in a while!  Let me know whats going on when you get a sec!  -LCpl Swisher
