Thank you for your comments

Andries, I do appreciate the kind and encouraging words. As you know so well, making music is such a rich and rewarding adventure. It’s more accessible than many realize; so I keep at it. It’s truly a delight making music with others. Your versatile playing inspires me to work on doing more than just strumming with my playing.

At 9:29am on June 10, 2023, Doug Thorsvik said…

Andries, The potential is probably there. Not sure I’m ready for full scale production, but I do like having kits on hand. They allow me to put an easy to play CBG in someone’s hand quickly. I’m happy to be a small time operator.

Greetings A.D. sorry I missed your question about the ceramic banjo on an old blog post of mine. I did not build it, it was hanging in a pottery gallery in Weaverville, NC. Its builder is a skilled potter as well as a terrific musician. It sounded much better than I expected. Wish I had the skills to build it! 

At 2:24am on May 22, 2023, Doug Thorsvik said…

Thanks A.D.! I always appreciate you checking out what the Slingers are up to.

Thank You for sharing. I like the sound of Voice recording in your video very much! All other components are very good also. But Voice is something :o)

At 1:51pm on December 20, 2022, Glenn Kaiser said…

Very kind of you A.D., many thanks! And enjoy that beautiful Nederlands Christmas!! -Glenn

Thanks for message, recovered fully from Covid…felt it for a day or two

At 4:21am on October 5, 2022, BrianQ. said…

Thanx for the comment Andries, I know for a fact that every video Glenn Watt does is in GDg tuning, which is the default tuning for CBG’s at the Nation. When in doubt check it with your tuner, chords are G/A/D?

At 4:28am on August 16, 2022, Howard Craypool said…

thank you for the kind comment, iam new at this so i am experimenting with my project, I tried with springs on the inside box and took them off and then hollowed the neck to except the springs, don’t really hear the different but thinking if I put a pickup on the neck might sound differently, I’ll tell you how it sounds after the pick up is installed, stay cool,,,,,,,,,,its all good…..
