Thanks for the kind words, Willard. I'm in awe of your art. GREAT stuff!!
I like fretless too- for a number of reasons... not the least of which is after a lifetime of abusing my hands, carpal tunnel syndrome and now arthritis, I simply can't play chords anymore. It's cool, tho'... I like the whole primal thang, etc., and I'm learning something new (which helps to keep me off the streets).
The dog is a trip. In that photo, he was 5 months old and less than 30 lbs. He's now almost 4 years old, 100 lbs., and as cRaZy as ever. : /
