This is absolutely stunning. Even non-musicians will appreciate this.

Not wishing to boast but I can play 6-string guitar like that. I tune it DADGBD (from the bottom string) & normally play in the key of Gmajor. With open-tuning like that it's a lot easier & even if you miss a note, the open string is still in the right key.

That sounds like a top tip, and as if I need another guitar. I'm not spending hours re-tuning!

You should put something up of you playing, next to your ponies! (Not playing next to your ponies, but on google, where the video.......you know what I mean!)

What's the "G" clamp on the bridge for?

I'll see what I can do. Bit difficult at the moment as we've got Sandra's sister & her 2 young kids (brat #3 is 1 of hers) staying here due to domestic problems. So, as you can imagine, the house is a bit crowded. And the way those kids fiddle with things, my guitars are safely shut away.

Rather than using a capo which closes all strings, the G-clamp can be used to hold a particular fret on just 1 string.

I see. Not very pretty though, eh? On that 10 string, did I see smaller clamps screwed into the bridge?

It looked to me as if there was at least 1 clamp screwed into the neck. I've got to go out now but I'll have another look when I get back.

OK thanks!

I'm away for 3 weeks from tomorrow, so if I don't see your response before, have a great time, and catch up after!

And to Stuarts Video. Yeah. They don't make 10 strings. Only 12 and 6. LoL. It looks like he just threw it together. LoL. Oh well he is pretty good.
