Just a little chunk I put together for fun, I thought I'd share. I kind of slammed this together this morning, and I am still getting used to a position change with the Sytick, but hey! Here it is! Eleanor Rigby! One of my favourite tunes! Emmett Chapman has a totally crazy version on his Parallel G...

You guys have to stop these posts! I just about ordered a Linnstrument last night. The only thing that stopped me was that I was having a particularly productive practice night...

I did some readjusting of the belthook, and moved the lapdawg - I am much happier now! I played for about 8 hours yesterday - no thumbs needed. What a difference! Of course, I still suck so that needs work, but at least my thumbs don't hurt and I can play seated and have the Stick pretty much suppor...

I have no "Underdogs" left over or I'd gladly send you one for trial and comments. Mike Johnstone did the first production and he may still have one for reference. All I have is my first prototype, a simple version made of plywood.


Emmett, you are the best.

Solved this, thanks to Emmett, KevC, RobG and Josh and poring over some Bob C videos... Looks like the instrument when seated was quite a bit lower for those guys. Plus, Captain Strings mention of being able to leave the Stick unsupported really got me thinking... I gotta reposition the belt hook so...

Do you use a Lap Dawg? I thought I gathered that you did. I use one on a bamboo grand and it balances quite well (and without the shoulder strap) plus the center of gravity is low enough that I can take both hands off of it and it will stay put for several seconds before it begins to fall out of it...

Hmmm, well crap. :D No shortage of things to work on, haha Standing is a lot more comfortable, and there's definitely a lot less twisting around the instrument than when seated, but some of the stuff I am playing is kind of hard to reach with elbows out, I did try it for quite a while last year but ...

:D Here's a jam I put together this morning to kind of illustrate some issues I am having; The RH is playing a repeating figure, no problem... The LH, though is doing some moves in F# Harmonic Minor that I'd LIKE to maybe double up the tempo on or modify rhythmically a bit, but alas my thumbs are bu...
