When I first began to build, there were no outstanding books to acquire knowledge. I had to catalog my own information how to make improvements with the guitar assembly, and finally, improvements with the sound. This way cost me a lot of time, but there were some very important things I stumbled on that might have been overlooked with a teacher. I believe that a part of this self training has helped me considerably with being able to decipher the Rodriguez code. Now, I have developed a fine-tuning technique similar to that of Marcelo Barbero that allows me to create a mysteriously pleasing voice in these instruments.
