A fret setup that worked?

Not for any particular build I have in mind...just trying to get an idea of what might have worked for someone. I keep thinking that it's complicated, but simple if the right tools or calculations…Continue

The Music Maker Foundation provides financial support for roots musicians, many of whom are living way below the poverty line.

They are having a benefit performance, starring the Carolina Chocolate Drops and Ironing Board Sam at The Hamilton in DC on Tuesday, September 3rd.

It sounds like it will be a great show!

I'm in (if it does not conflict with work). My modified baritone 3 string fretless is ready for action! :-)

OK DC folks, summer is just about here. We need to schedule a jam.

Who's with me???

Comment by Dan Sleep on February 14, 2013 at 8:21am

We have been pretty lax about getting together around here. I had a BBQ at my house a while back and we did some jamming. I guess we need to organize another one this year.

Thanks Dan/Jay, I'll keep working on moving the revolution south, Charlottesville's about an hour and 15 min. drive. I'm hoping to get some more guys in the Tri-City area Petersburg-Colonial Heights-Hopewell to get the bug.

Hi Lewis, I'm about 15 miles east of Charlottesville.

Comment by Dan Sleep on February 13, 2013 at 8:29pm

Hi Lewis, there are a bunch of us in the DC area, but I don't know of anyone that far south though.
