    It is somewhere in southern California- I think it is Painted Cave in the mountains near Santa Barbara. Those are native American petroglyphs on the wall.

    We did something similar with our youngest -- Tune it to an open chord. That way they can have more fun and not worry so much about "wrong" notes. We were surprised how quickly they recognized what in-tune sounded like and brought it to one of us to "Fix It" when it was out of tune.

    Simple and brilliant! Why didn't I think of an open tuning? :facepalm:

    Dude, I totally love the "alternate universe where Atlantis never sank" kind of vibe to that thing! Now if you'll fret it to some microtonal tuning, crystal-powered chariots of the gods UFOs will descend from the skies when you play it!

    Only downside is that it fills me with intense desire to smoke a vegetarian cigarette and get stoned out of my gourd, but I'm doing not-smoking-pot solidarity with the lady I am pursuing at the moment so I can't smoke a joint. :-(

    My first thought was that it was shaped like a gourd.
