    I have finally learned not to necessarily go with my first instinct. Take a little time. Ponder. Get some more info. My first "gut" reaction is pretty often off-base, and I hate that.

    As mentioned in the T-Type forum today, I learned from my old buddy Zook's posts that Paul Bigsby originally worked on building Crocker Motorcycles before turning his skills to putting things on guitars to make them twang.

    Yesterday I learned to make a sound with a flute. So far I’m just using the head joint and practising getting the breathing right to make a note but you gotta start somewhere!
    Today I will learn whether I’ve retained this ability or will be starting all over again...

    a baby bump....o_O

    the lady across the road and her daughter often stroll by in the afternoons for a walk with their dogs,,, just noticed the normally slender daughter has a pronounced baby bump.... oooooo..:)

    the daughter is 30 odd and already has a small girl who I've watched from being carried, strolled and then walking/skipping down the road and talking....

    another baby in the street...life goes on..:cool:

    Thin U Gretsch necks fit my hand best...time to get out the calipers and figure out what Tele neck approximates them.
