It's so bad but pretty much expected with how much nothing I have to make this. Here's me struggling to play this thing. 'Twas fun.

Playing a very crudely made tin can fretless ukulele, using a capo as a slide.

I restringed it and tied some thinner nylon cord as frets, like you would tie gut frets on lutes. They're roo sliperry to stay in place but I think it's starting to sound more palatable and I can play chords now!

Playing a crudely made tin can ukulele. Highlighted at the beginning are three nylon cords tyed to the neck to act as frets.

I'll be coming through Oakland, CA in mid Feb. While I'm there I'll be hosting Sound Hackers at Circuit Launch with my friend Beau. It's part "bring-a-hack" projects on tables and part short talks/demos/performance.

Like bleeps and bloops? Like making things? Come along!

It's criminal that the is the last major system in the that provides free to its students.

My siblings and I all had free access to instruments and instruction here in back in the 70's, and that seemed to be a nationwide standard in most places.

I hate conservatism, neoliberalism and their selfishness and greed.

My kid plays drums and used to play electric guitar. My spouse is getting back into guitar and is picking up the mountain dulcimer.

My musical instrument is... nothing. I used to sing in a capella choir in JH through college. I learned piano for a while.

Feeling a bit left out of the family band. Bass guitar sounds fun? Some of my favorite vocalists played bass.

Good idea? Bad idea?

@deadparrot thanks for the nice talk at . Esp. the proposal to think about how the data flows through the app was helping me a lot in the past to improve my based Web service quite a lot. Still need to check for "unnecessary" memory allocations as I'm running in a constrained embedded context... will research a bit more and if I found something will likely blog about it :)

Here is presented a set of depictions of of China, and a set of reproductions of the .

Here are some guitars I've built over the past few years. The necks, freboards, and fretting were all done from scratch. Most of these have been commissions. All the hardware (tuners, pickups, bridges, strings) I buy from CBGitty.
