Hello Tinq my friend!!!

Yes we have been friends for a long time.  You were one of the first 25 members here at the Clubhouse and we just celebrated 3 years old on November 20th.  You were part of the nation before that and I remember your early builds and our conversations.  It is my pleasure, and my purpose in life to help people to build their own instrument and express themselves with music. 

I've actually been online almost every day since 2003 helping folks - first with the original yahoo group Cigar Box Guitars (member 13 when it was 2 weeks old), then the next Yahoo group Cigar Box Guitar Builders, then in 2007 I started the MySpace page Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters (CBGHQ) (plus my video/live broadcast site CBG TV), then founding member #2 at the Nation in December 2008 and now my Handmade Music Clubhouse.  No one else has had a continuous online presence longer than me, and I have made many friends and learned a lot.  The cigar box guitar community has defined my life.

Tinq, we've watched your success and many times I've wished I had your talent.  Much luck to you in the future and in your involvement with the UK CBG movement.  One day I'd love to cross the pond and get to meet you.

My friend, as many instruments as you've made, I must say my favorite by far is your Lap Rider Steel - pure genius (with a wink & a smile).  Thank you for all you've added here and I hope you can find time to visit us more often.  What is your website?

Thank you for the kind words mon ami...
