Just tell me when to mail you CBG and I'll will be in the post... Don't want it to get there too early. I can set it up how you like.... low and fast, higher for slide.... either way, I salute you... keep your head down when you can and come home save.
Thank you again Matt for your kind comment. Hearing positive comments from viewers like yourself makes me want to dig in deeper, and find other creative ways to share this style of music with others. Enjoy.
Thank you Matt. Being a veteran myself, I feel a great appreciation for those who enlist and serve their country. Especially in these troubled times. I served in the USAF at a time of peace, in a non combative environment, and worked in a depot down in Texas repairing weather equipment. (Where I began my romance with the Blues) I am glad you were inspired by my presentation. I wish the best for you and your safe and speedy return to your home and family. God bless the Universe. Let your Light Shine On Brother Matt. Keep your Faith, Keni Lee
I don't get by the nation often but this morning I saw on the front that you're heading out for a while. Be safe and make sure to take a couple cigar box guitars. We really will have to try to get together and play sometime when you get back. Let me know if you need anything while you are abroad, I'll see if I can help. Take care...
Thank you very much for your encouraging and constructive comments. I enjoy researching material as a means of learning. Having the ability to arrange and present the information accurately as an instructional video helps to clarify my understanding even deeper. It is definitely a pleasure to share this information with friends who share the same interest. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the presentation. Thanks again for your feedback. Enjoy.
Hi Matthew, yes I think I did make the wheel for the fiddle-gurdy a bit smaller to fit in the box. Don't think the size is critical, only for the turning speed. Used a round sawblade that you can put on a drill to cut the wheel. The principle of the FG is not so difficult, the tricky part once it's finished is to get the pieces of cotton on the strings right and the right amount of rosin on the wheel. Good luck with building, let me know if I can help... I usualy start building without plans, so I have to work from memory, but in this case the instructions of Havlena are pretty clear.
Thank you. If Bill and me ever would get our act together we certainly could do that. I mainly play out on the subway platform as a one man show. We get together with our friend Jackie on Friday nights not to rehearse, but to have fun and unwind. Hopefully all three of us will be together again soon to finish our unfinished projects. Enjoy.
Currently, I have too many irons in the fire, but I would certainly enjoy the opportunity to send you a music video to edit into one of your creations. I will definitely keep you in mind. It is very kind of you to offer. Enjoy.
