    Saw a video on here , when? buggered if I can remember!.
    It was an Aussie bloke in concert, playing a home made 4 string gat.
    Can't remember who posted it, or why.

    As Maureen says, when I can't remember where I left something!

    "It's here somewhere!"

    I've done quite a few minor repairs, rewires and set ups on guitars and it's really not easy to get an instrument that is easy to play at the end of your efforts without a degree of experience. You could make a guitar sure and there are plenty of kits on the market but serious luthiers are nothing short of geniuses.

    I know that feeling, been in this house for 11 years and take it off the stand every few weeks wipe it clean and put it back, used it about three times since we've been here, I'm very, very rusty.
    Was something I intended to resurrect when I retired 14 months ago.
    Well maybe tomorrow !!

    I remember my dad making a new banjo after I had accidentally broken the old one into three pieces whilst clowning around .
