Hello Peeps, 

The time has come for me to join the Guitar Making Revolution 🎸. I've been following Mark since I saw his documentary film by Gordon Doherty about four years ago. I've been dreaming of building my guitar for the past fourty years but never had the opportunity, the knowhow or the nerve to do it. Watching that documentary and seeing the emotion and dedication that Mark  puts into his passion for guitar making and teaching gave me the desire to try. Watching his recent YouTube Workshops during this Covid-19 lockdown has helped to reinforce that desire. Watch This Space. 🎶🎸✌️😁

Hi Russ

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will appreciate how much knowledge can be gained from Mark and this forum.

There are some very talented people frequenting it.

Good luck on your journey through the "Dark Art" of guitar making 😀 

Mike

Thanks for the welcome Mike. It feels exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. 😀 😧

Hi Mark, Here is a link to your documentary. Hopefully it will work. I'm not very internet savvy. There is still a post on your Facebook site about it if you scroll back to December 2016. 

Cheers,

Russ 🎶🙂🎸

It's a pleasure Mark. I had to get my kids to show me how to attach it. I think you should attach a link to it on Workshop Wednesday. It will certainly inspire others. 

Cheers,

Russ.

What a fantastic little documentary on your background and the history of Bailey Guitars. You must put a link to that on your website.

Hi Mark,

Sorry, I forgot to answer your question. You're already helping a great deal. I'm going to sign up to your online courses. I'm busy with work until Sept-Oct but will hopefully get to your workshop course when they're up and running again as well. I'll be in touch. 

Looking forward to Workshop Wednesday this afternoon. I'm on holiday this week and next so it will be the first time I can watch "Live". If I can figure out how to Live Chat I'll say hello. 

Cheers,

Russ
