Thanks, Bones.   Your silk purse and sow's ear analogy is not far off.  I do have a start on a paint can lid resonator.  Maybe I will get a player banjo yet.

That sounds great UJ nothing like a good rebuild to make a silk purse from a sows ear .....

Cool, Poopshoe.  I love the last line of the recipe.   Will message you.

Been catching some jumbo 18" trout and smoking them this spring. (cough cough).

Poopshoe's low sodium brine recipe for all fish: 1/3 cup non-iodized salt, 1 1/2 cups brown sugar,1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper, 1 teaspoon dried dill ground between yer palms, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 1/2 cups water plus or minus, and a couple dashes of Tobasco. Strir until dissolved, cover and soak fish for 4-8 hours, rinse fish, pat dry, air dry for 1 hour and then into the smoker or onto a bbq grill burnin' hickory or even mesquite chips. Play or build a 3 string cbg while waiting...

POOPshoe, I have missed you.  Great to hear from you.  Catching any fish?

Alan, that is my under  $5  shirt for our fourth of July holiday.  Nearly perfect weather up hear lately.  Hope you had a good trip, and thanks.

Great sound from $5 Pup UJ, and nice to see all you guys up North finally wearing some lighter clothing :-D

Thanks, Derek.  It is a functional player now and I like it.

Thanks, Andries.  Yup, sir.  These home made instruments know what they want to be and we have to figure it out.

Thanks, Wes.  Electric slide is about my fave to play.

Just like the 80's baby - electric slide
