After several weeks of patient waiting on both parts I've finally bought the guitar Hurdy Gurdy offered for sale by Lizards on this forum. what a nice guy he is and happily sat with me for ages going over the basics and even made me wind on my first cotton before he'd let me leave
For various reasons i've not been able to get it out of its case other than to give it a polish and cuddle since bringing it home last wednesday but this week, armed with the Muskett's Method book, the Adjustment and Maintenance manual and loads of good advice from Lizards I plan to make my foray into the Loony land of Hurdy Gurdyness. Thanks to all those of you who have offered advice and assistance along the way, no doubt I'll be calling on you again soon. I'll keep you all posted on my progress.
Kind Regards jules
