Subject: RE: Convert your guitar to a Dobro (quickly)
By he way....Once you tighten your banjo head (quite tight), a small piece of foam placed at different spots between the co-ordinator rod and head (from the inside...so you'll have to take the resonator off)will give you MOST of the sounds of your banjo heroes. Depends on where you put it. A small dowel moved around will give you the sound that the REST of your banjo heroes have. This is a tad tricky and takes a bit of practice but it works even in most cheap banjos....BUT NOT ALL!

Steve, there are MANY reasons I wish I'd known you a few years ago!!

Cheers
