    Default First couple efforts from a new guy

    Hi Everybody.
    Been lurking the last few months. Some wonderful discussions and advise swapped here. Thanks for your help.

    I can't play this instrument for a stink. Banjo player by trade. I'm working on it though.
    Anyway, I've made two, or tried to make two, as it were.

    The first was about a year ago:

    The second I just strung today.
    Probably more of an excersize in understanding my own limitations more than anything, but it was fun, all the same:

    Anyway, thanks again for all your help and I'll be by with questions when I try to get this right next time around...

    Yeah, the "gourdulele" (cheesy as it is).
    It was the last of a few gourds I bought out of CA. The rest were turned into gourd banjos and/or attempts at gourd banjos.
    Its got a few problems though, lots of wolf-tones and similar. I think the gourd was too thick and the bridge needs to be replaced. Some day...
