"makes sense, I must of missed that one. Definitely not calling it Fred. Bear Tar seems like one of the better options, but honestly, the naming of it will be down to the new owner once it is no longer mine."

2 String Project: Not sure what to call it

I have moved house, I have a smaller workshop and now want to get building again, so I got myself a pile of parts and I'm going to build a nice little 2 String thing. Couple of questions.1. What would it be called, its going to have a smallish Biscuit Tin for a body, so is it a Canjo or a Diddley Bow or a Cigar Box or something else?2. Heres a parts list, am I missing anything?A Smallish Biscuit Tin in the shape of a Teddy bear (a gift from one of the girls at work, she wants to see what I make…See More

JP Lace Master replied to Uncle John's discussion What is your favorite slide and slide material? ( and more)
"I find that more modern blues and Blues Rock requires you to be able to fret the strings a little more than traditional, so I open up the user of my middle and fore finger for power chords. If I am playing what I would call purer slide blues, I have…"

JP Lace Master replied to Uncle John's discussion What is your favorite slide and slide material? ( and more)
"I only have the one, 70mm long, glass slide worn on the middle finger whilst playing more traditional blues e.g. Feeling Bad Blues or on the ring finger if I want to play modern Blues or Blues Rock e.g. Seven Nation Army."

JL replied to JP Lace Master's discussion problem with a guitar I sold.
"and don't forget lots of bubble wrap in the packing, and extra dollops of hot glue everywhere to secure wires, anticipating the shipping company treats it the way airlines treat checked luggage, *snicker*"

Well, the one I have made is made of a Biscuit Tin, whether you can call that a Cigar Box guitar, I don't know, but the tone when played acoustically is beautiful
