Can anyone tell me what the notes for Hawiian tuning are? also, which numbered strings from a set would sound the best for that. I'm making a 3 string for a friend n i think she would enjoy that…Continue
I'm Tim from Mc Henry Illinois. Ive been making 3 strings for about 4 months. Im on my 6th build now and its a 4 string! I've got a set of d'addario light accoustics in front of me n im not sure what strings to use for a 4 string... Do i go high or low?
Hi Tim: Yes, your guitar is getting great reviews, well deserved I might add, and I am pleased that you chose me to lay down the lines and art for you to turn into one of the most creative pieces I've seen on the CBN. It was a pleasure working with you, and I look forward to another go-round when you're ready. If anyone you know wants special pinstriping or art, send them my way, or to my blog.
Tim: Email me at... firstname.lastname@example.org...I have some pinstriping information which may be of help if you're still interested in persuing it, there's no reason to bore folks on this site with details non-related to CBGs. Jess
Let me noodle some ideas around and I'll get back to you. In the meantime, Diane (Chicago) builds some pretty neat stuff and she is promoting get-togethers there from time to time, if that may work. As far as sharing thoughts about striping, I will be pleased to give you some ideas and pointers. The Tiki thing sounds fun. Been slinging paint for more than fifty years, so perhaps I can help in some way. I noticed you asked a question some time ago about 4-strings. I recommend 5-4-3-2 (A,D,g,b) for four-string gits, tuned DGbd.
I don't have anything laying around, but give me an idea of what you might like in a panel and I can whip something up. Better yet, I live in Ohio and it might be fun to get some of us mid-westerners together for a CBG thing and at the time I could paint something for you. At any rate, I'll be happy to lay down some lines for you.
