I borrowed Albert’s bass strap over a year ago. It’s wide and has a hand cut section so that it sits just right on my shoulder. It was a generous but temporary share. My new leather guitar strap is nearly complete. I researched and discovered Lonsdale Leather close by went in and had a magic experience with the owner, grabbing his own strat guitar to show off his handmade leather strap, and bought some beautiful thick raw leather. Next step, Albert, agreed to cut out the shape of the strap in his magic shop. Final step a meeting with Naomi, at FlightPath Design, my blue dirt girl leather merchandise creator, to tattoo my brother’s original blue dirt girl sketch on the front, my Greg’s bdg logo on the back and my “because i said i would” rally cry inside the strap.
It’s almost finished and its been great fun creating my new guitar strap via local artists and business.
“because i said i would”
