Good stuff, Bear, you are welcome.

Thanks Derek. He's the bomdiggity of my guitar line up. I just adore his bluesy sound. I forgot to mention too, I played this tune through my late 70s or very early 80s JVC tape deck and radio amp. Something else I made, and all using the twist and tape method rather than soldering too! Glad you also think I'm getting better with each video. I couldn't have gotten much (if any) worse than when I first started LOL. Thanks again my friend!

Haha Dave. I didn't get any beatings so no harm done ;) We had thunderstorms today so glad I stayed in. Thankfully they didn't arrive until after I'd finished with the router!

Thanks Dave. Certainly seeing some progress again I think. That's the thing about learning I guess. Sometimes it seems like you're going nowhere and all of a sudden POW you can see that the practice hasn't been for nothing after all. Thanks again my friend.

Thanks Jim. That makes me smile from ear to ear. Believe me when I say, it's good TO progress lol. Currently having a messy old time using a router for the first time. Lots of wood filler was used haha. I got in a tiny bit of trouble for all the mess I made after Dani just cleaned the floors before I started. Oops lol. Thanks again my friend.

:o)
