Thank you, Richard. I have read a great deal of the forum already but with my limited knowledge and experience I am unable to make any meaningful contributions to the forum yet.  I am married to a Thai woman and that is why I have some ruins from an ancient capital as my avatar. My first post will probably be my wife's recipe for butternut squash soup but I will make sure I post it in the appropriate section.nod

Thank you Richard, I recently made a MD for another friend, who supplied the wood. 27 inch VSL with white cedar top and bottom with red cedar sides....the sound is astounding. As an experiment I made the bridge out of aluminium straight through to the soundbox. My friend played it in church last Sunday. talk about music to my ears???

Hi, I'm troxlerc@elon.edu. I've been thinking about what you posted. I got the impression that maybe you "hear" everything in a piece (harmony and melody). If I'm right, I suggest you work at picking out the melody when you hear something, or sing along with solo singers, like in the car. Male singers will be easier to "match." Try to get your head fully engaged in the tune. I think listening and then thinking about the melody are the two most important things in learning (the first for any instrument) but the second particularly for noter playing, because you have to play the tune "automatically." If you are hymn-lover, as I am, singing hymns to yourself is excellent -- as long as you're sure you're sining the actual melody and not harmony.
