Yeah i got a big limb off my black cherry tree sawed up at my local sawmill, not bad for 30 bucks. Now to dry for a year and then planed down to 7/4 - 1 1/2" thick, alot of neck wood and lap steel bodies. Whats not to like about cherry !!!
Thank you for your comments and question. Although, I do not teach this song on CD 1 (Open D tuning 6 string guitar and 3 string CBG / DAd tuning), I teach other Fred McDowell tunes. More importantly, I teach the method and techniques I use to figure out and arrange songs. I believe, armed with this info and getting the basic bass and melody line finger picking technique strong, you will have no problem understanding how to play this song. The 3 string CBG rendition of Wildwood Flower is created using the movable chord method taught on CD 6. Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee
hey bud . cheers. the amp was a 1945 battery box. probably had an old valve radio in there too, sadly no radio... but ive just aquired another with valve radio intact.... small valve amp time methinks ;)
Hey papa, thanks a lot.That neck is maple and honduran mahohany. the fretboard is bolivian mahogany. There are 11 long strips, plus 2 shorties for headstock width. I tend to be pretty picky about my alignment from nut to tuner, I like the strings to be as straight as possible. I had to taper the neck to accomodate the strat bridge assembly, giving me a nut width of 1-3/4, which is very comfortable to play
