Below are a few videos of Bill making instruments and playing them. For example, you can watch him make and play his version of the Weissenborn Guitar. We hope you enjoy watching him make and play some of he best toned instruments. Before you watch, here is a great story.  Fred Coon was a friend of Doc Watson’s, before his passing, for 47 years. Fred took Bill over to Doc’s house for a visit and jam session.  About five tunes into the session, Doc asked Bill if he could play Bill’s mandolin.  (Bill makes fabulously toned instruments).  About five tunes later, Doc hands the mandolin back to Bill and said, “son, there’s not a fierce note in that thing.”  Doesn’t that say it all?
