Three string dulci, with an Elmar Flatpup through a cube 40. Tuned somewhere in the neighborhood of B.
I put the slide on the shelf at the beginning of the Summer. Improv time with my best fan.

Thanks turtle. Guess there's no escape. 

Did a few things early on but never concentrated on the fretting part that much. Getting the slide down was priority to me. This Summer, was like starting over again with the CBG, but having a little edge going in from the slide aspect. 

Dusted this one off back in June, adjusted the bridge, added an Elmar (later) and really haven't put her down since.

So nice and don't know that I've heard you without the slide before!  Still sounds like you.

Thank you kindly folks.

Been playing this guitar all summer and not much slide.

Put the Elmar on few weeks ago and the fun factor just multiplied.

Haven't had a lot of opportunity to record, but this past weekend the window was there. Had a nice 2 hour plus session with the critters. Have a few more tunes to go through. Not sure what's there. If it's worthy I'll post it.

Again, thanks for the kind words everybody.
