    That doesn't always work for me either depending on the size of the photo. I switched to Flickr when PB went mad with greed.

    I'm sure there's some instructional videos on YouTube for free but if this makes sense in type if you're right handed and looking at the lap with the bar in your left hand tilt it at approximately a 45 degree angle left, usually on the higher strings side, to get the minor.

    Oh yeah and I bought an 8 string Weissenborn from Neil at Celtic Cross in Canada. It shipped to my place in Nashville to avoid vat and shipping so I won't get it until X-Mas.

    Maple neck from Guitar Mill and Staytrem bridge. That's all I did and it's great. The pickups aren't bad at all. Try them out first before you spend money to replace. You may be surprised.

    The new GeorgeBoard. Absolutely love it. An exquisite instrument. I had to create a crazy tuning to get the tension I wanted in a flat key to play with horns but I'm very happy:
