I missed your Red Alligator tune before I posted the last comment.   Fantastic tune!  What you using for your string?   You got one great sound there!

Hello Willard  very nice to meet you.  I am over near Eustis.  Man I love your artwork and your instruments!  Love the old VW van a whole bunch!!!  A buddy and I bumbed around southern Europe in one back in the 70's for a wee bit.   I like your idea for the dbows.  I still make some with glass jars but kinda scared to sell them because of the danger of breaking with broomewire so I started making a wooden bridge.  I like the ideas you use on your dbows.  Gave me a couple ideas to try out myself.  You have a great week.

I love the one-string bro! The 1st known string inst was traced back to cave drawings. It was 1-string with a long scale. It's just a primal thang I guess.

Hey Willard,

Thanks for the link to One String Willie. I've seen him on You Tube. Quite a character. Must be something about the kind of person who's into Didley Bows. lol   Hope you're having a great summer. I can't wait to get back to Florida so I can concentrate more on building. Going to build a Whamola, too, like Ice Bob had at LowBowFest. Saw a vid with Les Claypool and got that bug, too.  So much to do......

Hi Willard

Thanks for getting back to me. So far I have been building just the three string CBG's, but I would like to build a Didley Bow. Seeings how you're the master Didley Bow builder, I thought you'd be the one to ask a couple building questions;

First, what is a good scale for a DB?

Second, Which string do you use and what do you tune it to?

Thanks so much for your help.

Hal

Also, when you play, do you prefer a pick or a "beater stick?"

Where have you been playing, lately?
