Much appre4ciated Tom, many thanks.

I have found comprehensive  site so helpful in getting to understand a beautiful instrument. Just wish I was not so far away in the world. Wondering if there are other Aussies registered.  Must look exhaustively with fingers crossed.  Cheers. John

Thank you very much for your welcome to the site and your comments. I am amazed at how friendly everyone is here. It is a welcomed change from other sites. I am a brand new player/beginner and have a lot to learn. If you have any suggested helps like you tube videos etc. that you recommend for an absolute beginner at playing any stringed instrument, please tell me about them.

Thanks,

Peaceiscoming
