A friend wanted me to make him an instrument that sounded "real dirty." Well, no problem. We are recording a version of the Police's not-so-much-of-a-hit "Re-Humanize Yourself" and he wanted something that sounded good and unclean.

This time it is three strings (tuned D A d) and has a resonator that is an old aluminum stock pot. It sounds pretty great, and the work we have been doing on the recording has been fun. I will post that as soon as we get it finalised. In the mean time here is what it sounds like:
