"Rooting for you to prove them wrong, Pick. Sorry to hear you have to go through this challenge. Prayers for some positive healing and that you feel better soon as well. Check out Dr. Joel Wallach. He recommends certain foods and minerals to fight…"
"Very sorry to hear about your health, Pick. Prayers for healing and successful treatment for you and your wife. I have read where some people have eaten certain foods and avoided others with the intent to make the body more alkaline and less acidic…"
I like your thinking! That makes good sense as the boxes are typically reclaimed like you said. It does take a lot of time to make a six string neck and I don't seem to have the patience for that anymore LOL :) Now that I think…"
"Hi Derek, I have built many six-string box guitars, and I prefer to play them over a 3 or 4 string. Even though my best-sounding and looking box guitar is built using quality tonewoods, I still used a reclaimed six-string neck. Modified of…"
"Thank you, Kale. My friend at the music store is happy with it. I have made nearly as many 6 strings as 3's and 4's, since it seems most people around here in Ohio, including my friends, mostly seem to prefer 6's. Have had more than a…"
"Thank you, Andries! I cheated on this one, it's a lightly used neck from a "Lyon by Washburn" strat. A friend gave me a few used necks. The hard tail bridge made it easy to intonate, felt like I cheated there too. It's a Snake…"
"Thank you, Taffy. I always feel guilty using a factory neck since most of the 6 strings I have made the necks. My friend who manages one of the local music stores has been kind enough to give me a few salvaged necks and he sells my 6'ers faster…"

I’m not sure why that didn’t happen until today! It’s not like we haven’t been communicating. Uncle John and Kale have already gotten back to me on the 1st CallyFest Zoom Jam idea. I want to hear your thoughts before I move forward.
Derek, For some strange reason you are not on my friends list. I sent this same message to Uncle John and Kale.
Uncle John, Kale, and Derek
I would like to see if you are interested in cohosting with me the 1st CallyFest Zoom Jam for Cigar Box Nation Enthusiasts: An event on the long bare CBN calendar that people could actually show up to and participate in!!!
The three of you each have a solid following on CBN, sing well, and play consistent rhythm: perfect for leading others in a jam! It would give us the opportunity to hang out together with other CBN enthusiasts and connect at a whole new level.
We could use songs from the Slingers 250+ song, GDG, 1-finger songbook. Each of us choose 3 or 4 songs (Sweet Sixteen?) to lead. The Slingers normally do 15-16 songs in 60-75 minutes. I can create a downloadable play along songbook in the order we do the songs just like I do for the Slingers every week. I also have some ideas for some interaction with the participants. I would record the session and could break out the songs to post to CBN and/or the entire jam (I’m sure Kale could do a more creative job post processing the Zoom recording if he wants to).
If you are game for the challenge, please let me know soon. We need to pick a date and time for the jam and choose the songs. We can also do a brief prejam Zoom, meeting to make sure we have everything figured out on our end.
