"Matthew, just catching up. It's been a seriously busy month. I speak just enough to make me stupid in front of someone who really knows the language. I want to get the Rosetta Stone program for it when I can scrape together the cash. Welcome,…"

"Oh, I think the tin is a grand idea, but the leather is just a major complicating factor. If you hit the point that you're making solid body electrics, it probably wouldn't be an issue, but, until then... The simpler the better, for me.…"

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
A Wikipedia article on cigar box guitars
What instruments are you building or playing?
I'm currently playing my first CBG, which I built Uncle Crow style. I would like to build more CBGs, especially a mandolin and a ukulele. Eventually, I may expand into non-CB based guitars. I'd like to build an Irish penny whistle, a dulcimer, a hurdy-gurdy and a set of uilleann pipes. All things in good time.

Send me a note to a.e.roberts@earthlink.net, so I can send you some flute plans.

Good eye! Yep, the Robertsons weren't organized, so I martched with the Rosses instead.

Come Monday, I'll scan a few pages from "Simple Flutes: A Guide to Flute Making..." http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=simple+flutes&tag=googhydr-20&index=stripbooks&hvadid=1098717941&ref=pd_sl_31crgbnoca_b and send them to you.

Hey there. I'll be in a red weathered Robertson Red kilt http://www.lindaclifford.com/Robertson.html, and probably be in the noon clan parade. I'll have on a black glengarry cap (red toorie and no dicing) and a khaki shirt. I have a grey moustach, goatee and longish grey hair; I'm starting to look like Buffalo Bill. I may be carrying my bodhran, but I'll bring the flutes and a small book you might want to order on flute building. Here's a photo of the flutes: http://handmademusic.ning.com/photo/2-flutes-and-a-whistle?context=user
Take a look at the other photos I've put up.
