Thanks Blue, I'll see what i can do. Might have to be on the end that now says LYNAS. I'll try it there but sometimes it gets messed with in the firing. I could letter on the slide glaze but that would need to be on a different color background. I'll see what works best with some trials. Stay tuned....

Hi Blue, nothing new as of right now. I'm teaching a tea pot class and will be making many new porcelain objects. I can't stop making the little fellows, so more slides are in the offing. I know you want blue ones, any size or style needs? I'll custom make some for you if i know what you'd like. Thanks for asking Blue. I'll Cook something up for you.... Dave

Hey Blue, ya business is going good. Not that $10 slides will get me rich but it's fun to meet more of the Nation and get some good feedback. I think my slides are getting better and more useful too. I like a project. I'll be sending some to Queensland Aus. on Monday. Wonder what the post will be? They wanted $400 to ship a lap slide guitar there. The garden is going great guns too. Raspberries are coming fast, soon tomatoes galore. I'll post photos as soon as the next firing comes to pass. Keep sliding Blue. .... Dave

Hey Blue, glad you like the new slides. I just made a big batch of Steven's style bars yesterday. When we fire next, i'll have a bunch of new ones of each type. Happy sliding Blue, .... Dave

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the ;

Hey Blue, sure, pay when you can. I'm glad you like the batch. I've got some new ideas for the next batch. I've got pinky size for 3 stringers. Short. And a Stevens style bar. I made two of those today. Cheers, Dave
