Emiel, Great job..beautiful stuff! G PS I'd love to hear some of the drop C tuning (standard/Charlie Poole) pieces with fingerpicking on that 26 Ball-Bearing! Does a 26 bb have a trap-door or a regular resonator?

Thanks for the nice comment. This was played on the new Vega Tubaphone openback. A 26 bb has a full regular resonator. I will use that one for my next recording here on my BHO-homepage. Maybe I have another suitable piece in this tuning, have to think about it.

Thanks Darryl. I do use fingerpicks on the openback but not on this recording. I couldn't have done the last part, which is clawhammer, if I had had fingerpicks. ;-)
