 I think Elvis Presley covers on CBG (after a moment thinking about it) will be greate! Looking forward to what you come up with! :-)

Hi Jim,

What a coincidence that I came here to find that you saw my video before I got here! I love that song, and your version. I thank you for letting me know about that coincidence, cause it feels nice to know that someone is still listening.

Heheh, I just noticed from your history that you started with Dennis Havalena's site. That's exactly where I started out a number of years ago making an upright bass (see my videos). Then a cookie Tin banjo went wrong and I stumbled across this site. 

His stuff is good, I spent a long time searching through different grades of Weed Whacker for that bass.

Thanks for the link. It's good stuff. I'm not really that au fait with Old Time playing, living in England and so on, there's not much of it about. I was inspired by Ben Prestage's set on the fiddle to try some stuff out on my 3 string dulcimer fretted cbg. It's good to hear some other people doing it too.

Hey thanks Jim :) I'm a bit greedy - I want it all.  Been playing guitar for 22+ years but I really want to learn banjo and fiddle....and a bunch of other stuff lol 

I can't believe you've only been playing for a couple of years - it sounds great!  My next 2 builds are piccolo banjo's for my 2 daughters (using some wooden salad bowls I found at a thrift store) but after that I might take a run at nice little fiddle box :)  I think the bow would be the wierd part for me as well in terms of learning to play.  Been playing slide for the last couple of years so my ear/intonation is getting better but the bow would definetly be a little alien to me.  Cheers!

Hi Jim.

You have put up some very interesting videos. You obviously are part of a very talented family.

All the best.

Ahhh, mystery solved about the plastic-headed uke! I'll have to start looking, too. Good thing I like pretzels. In the meantime, your tensioning system will be something on my agenda soon. Thanks, Jim!

Love the "Sweet Sounds..." video! Nice playing, and beautiful instruments! I've made a few skin-head banjos, but I'm not thrilled with their being so subject to humidity. I'm really curious about the construction of the cookie tin uke that looks like it has some sort of clear plastic head on it. I'd love to see a few pix w/ descriptions or construction tips!

Jim, the mando, fiddle and nygut string man....  I am glad to have you for a nation friend.
