Strat-O-Master, Male, 80, from Iowa
If you can't destroy your stuff while attempting to repair your stuff then what is the purpose of even owning stuff? May 17, 2021

I'm a finger pickin rockabilly player. I do a lot of finger picking on most of the things I record but it is mixed with a lot of double stops. I never use picks but I use my index finger as a flat pick so in a lot of instances it is flat pickin +1.
- Type this information please:
I stopped gigging after about 12 years due to the Lord telling me to get out of that lifestyle. I was doing too many drugs and was on my way to the bottom when I was taken out of that scene.
I stopped playing a guitar for over 25 years until a friend send a Strat to me to repair. It was a 90lb Chinese Strat copy that was made from what appeared by its weight to be made of lead plywood. It had a neck that looked like the rolling hills of SD. BUT it tweaked my interest so I bought a Strat kit from Carvin. Then I wanted to make a real Strat and bought an unfinished body and neck from Warmoth.
Since than I have been recording and playing /building Strats and I'm as happy as a pig in mud. Here are a couple of songs using the fingernails.

I have posted a lot of other songs on the Internet in various places but for the most part my uploads are almost religiously ignored by people. Some ask me if I play professionally or for my own amusement. Well sometimes it's amusing other times not so much.
