Letha,

 

Did something happen with the camera? About 10 seconds in, just as he's describing the box, I see screen wonkiness, like a cable was disconnected, then nothing but green screen for the next 2 minutes. Shame, looks like a nice build. Doesn't happen when viewed directly on YouTube so it must be Ning on the CBN site. Nice job, especially for learning the song 15 minutes before! Roy sez he took you away from your bluegrass roots, but all he really did was get you to play a song that's nearly 250 years old, on a raucous modern instrument. :-)

I put this video up to show the guitar build. Roy did a great job on this one, and I enjoyed getting to try out each instrument he made. Thanks Roy.
