Been rewatching this trying to get down and understand the rolling strum, probably best with fingernails.

I'm doing a sound test on it with horrible timing/playing … but it has a ton of potential …

Setar w/Korg CM200 clip on pickup>boost>Hardwire SC2>Yamaha G fifty 12 amp

This one is a bit more traditional in sound (Irish folkish) and originates in the Appalacian mountains:



You can find these new (made in Canada) for about $100!

Now for a bit more exotic, the Thai Isarn has a very sweet mellow sound …
