Enjoy that Lowebow! A group would be great. I'm "in", if you start it. :-) What tunlngs are you using? I used ezlooper.com to study Seasick Steve's vids. On his 4-STRING CBG he's using 1,1,5,1. (i.e.: Don't Know Why She Love Me). On different concerts he is in different keys on the same song, but still 1 ,1, 5, 1. So,I tried that on the LB and sounds great.. Plus, I'm using a two-bolt capo "Ben Prestage" style for a shorter neck.
thanks a lot Steve, yep no choice but to learn to live without them. It's how it has to be. Having a grand child on the way balances things out, but it's a shame they couldn't have overlapped a bit as Dad was so excited about it!
You'll find it well worth while using lighter/better materials.Tried it on a few of mine, this one has a box made from 1/16" thick walnut back and sides and a western red cedar front. It has best acoustic sound of all .
Model shops sell prefinished sheets of the walnut 4" wide and they aren,t expensive.Glue two one foot lengths together to make a nice back 12"x8",cut a length down the centre, thats your ends and sides
Very sorry. My videos stopped working so I re-did them on my page, not realizing they would also show up on the main page and displace others. Seems to be some trouble with video since the last change from Ning.
