"Has a sort of reverb affect as I had to enlarge hole in can for 3 strings. Works great, good volume even. Strings near end of can thru body, good resonance. Love trying stuff out, my friend wanted a 3er canjoe so there she is! -Glenn"

Low-carb us. Been thinking of doing this for years- a Thanksgiving mini-diddley w. C.L. plastic container. Not super loud but quick and fun. .024 wound string, Co2 capsule slide, credit card pick. THANKFUL! -Glenn

Bro Glenn,

I am building a CBG site-not commercial- and answered a question of how I got started with this and the answer is that I have been your fan for a long time and found you on a YouTube link to see what you are up to now.

i posted that YouTube link on my site and hope you approve of me using it.

My other site is and I would like to reference your GRRR sitee there, please.

Thank you,

Glenn: I was impressed by pics put up recently of a 5-gallon bucket bass, and (I think) your name was mentioned by the builder, thanking you for the idea.  Do you have plans for such a bass that you could share?
