    Default A short tune in GDGD tuning

    I know I rarely post anything much despite my rather bad GAS habit. Frankly if it wasn't for the band I'd probably lose my mandolins and uke and concentrate only on tenor.

    This is my Mcilroy tenor capo at sixth IIRC

    Hope you enjoy (original composition - apologies it's an iPhone recording)

    Lovely mate, that is a big bridge on your guitar.

    Guess this might be why. Nifty design. It’s a nice bit of wood!
    iPad cam made it look blue sorry about that!
    Dee had it strung heavy in CGDA initially which sounded amazing I’ll admit. But it’s opened up lovely since and I keep it in G tunings.
