Hello, I play a little Irish Trad on the Anglo Concertina and whistle.
My wife play Irish Trad with me on her Mandolin and sometime on an ukulele tuned to 5ths.
I play an array of Instruments from banjo to hurdy gurdy. I picked up a Guitar Dulcimer 3 years ago and thought i would Make a cigar box version.this went by the wayside and unfinished. Then i discovered the Diddley Bow. I finished the cigar box diddley 10-20-2011 with a Camel Snus resonator. I will be putting a Transuducer in next and give it a wirl.will post pictures soon.I have also Just ordered a custome Cigar box Fiddle with a Strum stick dulcimer neck from Blaine Horlocker who made my dulcimer.He really likes a challenge. will send pics on that also.If interested in having speciall items made like this you may want to check him out at http://smokeymountaindulcimer.com/
Hi. Great site. Had to join this group.My dad from Tipperary.Mum from Offaly. Been living in England for 20 years.Miss the old country.But there is a gang of us that get together and play for the craic in some local pubs.Even get free beer for our efforts. I play 6 and 12 string guitar as an accompaniment to the others and the singing.Stumbled across a 3 string advert.Got curious and then hooked.Just about to make my first CBG.
Havent got a clue how to play.But will enjoy trying.
Slainte to you all.
