Maybe, but some of us have known that Tim also plays mandolin.

Mando is a great guess. Some of you know I am having a my friend make me a new mando. It is coming along nice, been playing on the new Campfire Crooners recordings.

But this new 8 string thing is different. It will take me a year or better to get this into anything I can play.

Lemme guess...you're having a guitarron built for you with two extra strings.

:hid: [smilie=cheeky-smiley-025.gif] [smilie=fun_84.gif]

Needless to say, I am watching this space for further developments.

It's all I can do to handle my one instrument that has 18 strings on it, but that's neither here nor there. [smilie=grinning-smiley-044.gif]

Hmmmm....

I'm thinking that you are trying to channel your inner Charlie Hunter. And I'll bet it has fanned frets.

C'mon, tell us!!!!! [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif] [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

Yeah, you got it. I scored a Charlie Hunter guitar. I grew up playing classical but this is all together different. I will definitely be some time before I can play it properly, but it will be fun trying.
