Well, Le Noëlélé was also intended as a "quick build" - 2 to 3 evenings should be enough to complete this special piece of christmas accessory★. We now regret not asking the Christmas gnomes for permission - they don't like to be ignored and made it very difficult for us to finish the instrument in time. As if by magic, the tailpiece broke, and as soon as it was touched, the neck was also in two halves.
★ A big MERCI to the tin donors Silvia, Marion and Christian.
★★ Of course you can imagine that we also took a good gulp down our throats - which then led us to decide not to build this evening after all, but rather to devote ourselves to singing and making music. What was not such a bad idea at all.
