Thanks Derek. Now that's a compliment and a half. Is there any significance between which foot taps first? Is your left easier pleased and when it gets going your right looks over and says "Seriously? You're tapping to that?" Lol. Hazy morning fogginess/brain-haze going on with me I think. Thank you kind sir. You've made me smile now.

Thanks James O. Having bags of fun on it and actually have it on my lap as I'm typing now lol. Just had a very rough go at playing over some backing tracks but lots of practicing needed to make it sound half decent.

I'm considering making it two guitars due to the size factor and stretch mostly but I think I'm going to wait until I've tried it in octave tuning and put a guitar strap on it to see if I can make it more comfortable first.

We shall see but having lots of fun for definite. Thanks again James O. Much appreciated.

Thanks Andries. I've wanted a double neck for ages. Didn't know it would be such a stretch though. I'm happy with it as is though; like you said it's different sounds.

Not sure why Diamond Bottlenecks isn't responding. Very strange. Then again I've always called the workshop and spoken with Ian the head honcho. You might try that, I know he's not much into technology lol.

Thanks for the comment my friend and for taking the time to watch. Much appreciated!

Do like the Sound of that rezzo ,But by the looks of it , if it was me ill undo them, and then you got two for the price of One, dono because of the reach or size, the 3-5-7 markers are fine for playing, and the top one gives you a more Pure Tone somehow , that will bee for your Love of Bass ill bett, been trying to order a Diamond Slide but they dont react to email that quickly!! easy does it Bear! Thanks

I know what you mean. Do cats really need a reason to slap you? Probably not.

Comment by Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear on November 14, 2017 at 2:42pm
Lol Paul. Our cats just had to look at us and we knew we'd fallen short of their expectations. They used to literally shout at us if we'd stayed out longer than they liked. Felt like living back home with the parents lol.

The hand on the tail is to slap you for not feeding on time or giving the wrong food or just because they're a cat. LOL

Comment by Slow Blues Dani & Ol' Grey Bear on November 14, 2017 at 1:17pm
Lol Nancy. A cat that strokes itself is a new one on me. Ours used to look at me when I was stroking them as if to say "silly human, I only came over for food" lol
