    So Right about when everybody's fast asleep
    That's when I begins my mid-DAY creep!

    I'm twelve hours away from the USA, so I publish when you guys are awake, and answer comments...Well, you get it!

      What a great thing to have been at that man's knee for so long. Do you have a musical focus either instrumentally or culturally?

        Playing an enormous amount. I go into my music room at 4pm, next thing I look, it's 9:30. Sometimes I have snack and go back. When my youngest turned 21, I declared that I was going to play as much music as I wanted, and I would go to india as much as I wanted... had my last three birthdays here in Jaipur!

          invention? Where's the drone? Very fine performance. What's that where a guitar sound hole would be? It looks almost like a resonator but it's a solid body intstrument, right?

          Will you be in Jaipur for Holi?

          I am also engrossed in music here, in midcoast ME.  There's a wealth of talent here and it's very welcoming and supportive.  Collaborations are easy to come by, also.

            It's a practice guitar made by pignose, and the hole is where there is a speaker so that you can practice with it without an amplifier. I rebuilt it completely and went through a lengthy process to find the right pick up for it. Took off the frets, sanded the neck, rebuild all the guts, all new bridges and tuners, fit A custom-made plate on it, it can be played just like a sarod, but being based on the frame of the guitar it has wonderful characteristics that Indian instruments don't have.
