    ...someone who used to be here a lot. I lived and breathed this sub-forum! After 3 years of keeping my bender's in their cases I got them out last week and feel reborn! I have so much catching up with all of you to do! I wonder how my old friends are doing and cannot wait to meet you new ones....I attach proof that I really am a serious Bender person!

    Thanks all for welcoming me back.
    I know I am "new" but I was actually here when Brad Paisley used to be a member!
    ndcaster - this is the Forrest Lee Jr. Bender....I do not know if it is still in production but I am thinking about finding another just in case it is not!

    Thanks, telesavant! I have something new and better in the works, but it takes me forever to write these things.

    Kevin,

    That was absolutely amazing!! And what's even cooler is that Brad's drummer, Ben Sesar, is playing drums on that track!!!

    (Great playing and welcome back!)

    Yea, I was grateful for that. I was with Brad's guitarist (Gary Hooker) and played him my scratch track. He said my digital drum track sound really bad so he took me over to Ben and asked Ben if he would do a real drum track for me. It did make a huge difference.
    And, it is good to be back. Thanks for the comment!

    That's a very nice song, well played. The first time I heard someone mention a B-bender I thought he was joking, and I responded in kind. I think I offended the guy. It was a long time after that when I found out it's a real thing, and a really cool thing. . .och, tamale.

    Gad, I can't imagine leaving benders in their cases for years! When I play bender I don't play "regular" guitar - it's a completely different musical instrument. It'd be as if I quit playing mandolin or dobro for years!
