Hello, Kev.

 

In one of your videos you play an instrument with unusual fretting. Can you tell me more about your fretting scheme and why you prefer to use it? I'm always interested in unusually and dedicated fretting schemes like the dulcimer Diatonic scale, the bluscimer scale, and pentatonic scale fretboards. Here is a photo of the instrument I'm talking about:

Are you using just a few frets of the standard 12TET chromatic fretboard? (If so, which frets are you using?) Or, is it based on some other fret spacing scheme? Tell me more!

-Rand

Cheers kev, i took a look, spider bridge?? biscuit bridge?? do spiders eat biscuits?? arrgghhh run away... resonator gitfidddle is now bottom of the pending pile, haha.

hey kev, that would be brill, i do want to make a resonator geetar,& to have my own handbuilt neck fitted to it would be awesome,but the resonator thing - it seems really complicated, does the sound bowl need to be kind of floating or fixed? i cant get my melon round that.
At 10:44am on March 17, 2011, Johno said…
thanks kev,some good ideas there, but the bandsaw will prolly relieve me of my pinkys ! owww. dont think im competent enough to build my own neck, too tricky :)

Thank you for your friendship. There are so many good songs. If you are planning to study strum stick (dulcimer), find yourself some early american folk music to inspire you. Here is an example:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT1BH7Al4rA&feature=related

Additional, there is a lot of good instructional material out there too. Basically you need to "flip over" your approach to the instrument because your are playing guitar style instead of the traditional lap style. The tunings can be very haunting. The fingerings rather easy. Key words on google can offer a gold mine of ideas. Enjoy your practice.

Hey Kev, to tell the truth,im just enjoying bashin the hell out of my first build at the mo. I do like the look of your Dog dish Resonator. Are they tough to build? but ive only got neolithic tools to work with & was wondering if its possible? any tips :)
