Hey man you made it here. It was great meeting you last night at the open mic, seeing your boat oar bass and being able to bring you here to the clubhouse. It is a natural fit for your style of building and you bring a lot to the game. The chat room is a great way to meet builders all around the world, I like checking in with the gang and seeing what everyone is up to.

See you at an open mic soon.

Hi Mark, welcome to the Clubhouse! Awesome instrument in your profile pic, can we see more of it please?

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
