Afro Plus Relative doodlingI sent my nephew (kives in France) a wee drum and guizouki doodle - which he continued to doodle on with his slide guitar. The 'guizouki' is a an old spanish guitar (£20) that I made into a kind of bouzouki). This is very 'Paris Texas' Ry Cooder minimalism, but you should hear his blues playing. Dec 2019

Anja's New Hoose Made up!For herself: there are a couple of software instruments including small pipes but the scratchy fiddles and violas are 'real'. I made simple Kontakt and Halion instruments for the small pipes.
