Two New Builds: The Teddy Bear and the Lunch Box

On Christmas Eve I was bored and Hungover so I finally built myself an Emoji Tin Chugger. Since this was to be my personal instrument and not something to sell later, I used a larger Emoji Tin, this one in particular is a lunch and I have built it so that I may still open and close the lid with ease for maintenance and kept the…See More

JP Lace Master replied to Tom T's discussion How many strings is best?
"I will admit that I love the E+e combo, little sparse, but very useable, but I've got to say that an AD Chugger is the best for 2 stringers"

JP Lace Master replied to Richard Dean's discussion 1 CBG, what tuning??
"For what you're learning GDG is a good place to be working from. I am also learning Bad to the Bone and Wild Thing and have found Open G very good for both. If I may suggest for Bad to the Bone, if you already know the Muddy Waters Mannish Boy…"

JP Lace Master replied to Tom T's discussion How many strings is best?
"with the exception of the 4 string, I've tried them all at some time or another, but the 2 stringer has got to be the best or at the least the most fun. The string combinations alone make it awesome for experimentation."

JP Lace Master replied to Taffy Evans's discussion Making my biscuit tin CBG sound better
"I like your story, a tissue box guitar, that's where I started and then went into my grandfathers work shop to build with him, he is gone from me now, but I honour him by keep building."

JP Lace Master replied to Taffy Evans's discussion Making my biscuit tin CBG sound better
"I'm inclined to agree that the Tin lid is an important part of the sound, much in the same manner as a license plate guitar, it is the sound board, but the tin that makes up the body is equally important to the sound as the metal of the tin…"

JP Lace Master replied to Ducati Scotty's discussion Shipping a CBG
"The size of the box is one thing and you are right, making it smaller is the best option, but tell me what is going on with the weight of you CBG, I've got solid body 6 strings that weigh less than that? Surely a CBG is usually lighter than…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning
"I'm liking the article, the EBE tuning looks interesting, I got a project on that involves the GBE strings, might be worth a try."

JL replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning
"It is GDG dropped a full step down, use it for any song in G that you find more comfortable to sing with FCF. (just like using a capo in the opposite direction). One of my bands did everything in Eb standard tuning, half step down, for some reason…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning
"Got to agree Nigel's vids are good. In terms of the strings, I'm using the ADG strings from a set of Ernie Balls electric 10's and I gotta say the sound I am getting from the Tin body is beautiful. The key doesn't worry…"

John Sawyer replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning
"I've used EBe, FCf, GDg, DAd...  They're all workable... if you're singing, you might find a different key better matches your voice or a particular song... When I build Electrics, the thinner strings have less tension... I…"

What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning

I've been messing around with my 3 String canjo this weekend and I have come across some tunings. Saw a video for how to play Folsom Prison Blues on a CBG and loved it and copied it. But heres the thing, the tuning used, I haven't found anywhere else. Doesn't seem like a weird tuning, FCf, just open G tuned down.can you guys tell me anything about it and suggest what else I can use it for?See More
