Hello David, regarding simple noter and drone tunes, if you wish to "follow" my profile, we can private message each other our home email addresses, then I can share several DAA and DAD tabbed tunes with you. I am unfamiliar with the 1-5-5 and 1-5-8 terms or keys or any of that stuff. I keep things fairly simple and am happy to share. You can check out some of my videos here on FOTMD to get a feel of what I play.

Sorry David, I forgot to say in the previous post that I had also been persuaded to post a blog about the TMB on this site which may also be of interest ?

Good morning David, and welcome to FOTMD from the UK/European group that exists within it. It was a welcome surprise for me to find that you had taken the trouble to send me a message aquainting me of the fact that you had posted additional info on the ED site, thank you. Your instrument has been made on TMB lines, tho' I would suggest somewhat shallower than others that I read about when researching in order to make one, plywood has been around for a long time, and fits in with the concept that the old makers used what was to hand. Should you be interested, there are pics of mine 'in the making' ( I got the 'tinwork' very wrong !!!) and also video footage of me playing it, posted on this site. I was very lucky in that after I answered something on ED I was sent some very beautiful poplar from Indianna to work with. Keep in touch,

JohnH
