Got my feet moving Jim!

Thank Richard. This is tuned D,A,d and I'm letting the low D drone pretty much through the whole tune.I think that gives a bagpipish quality to it.

Thanks shane. Ceoli agus craic!

This could be a  scorched earth comment, but the acoustics, fantastic, gave a hint of bagpipes. I really enjoyed this Jim! Makes me want to down a couple quarts fast and try to build one.

'tis indeed Maddog. This is one of the tunes played at the below deck party in the movie The Titanic.

Thanks Gary. That slotted headstock gives more down pressure on the nut which, I think, improves the sound of an acoustic instrument.

Thanks Dave. 16 oz and larger work best - in a couple of ways.
