Scot Gardner - Victoria, Australia
By Tynon- Its an absolute pleasure to do an intro on
Scot. He's an all time gem of a didg fella. Its hard to do justice in
words but in simplicity he carries the spirit of didg in so many ways.
Heart and Spirit through and through. He is as comfortable
expressing the fun side of didg, hamming it up with a didg on
a comedy program on TV or in allowing it to be a tool in his work
with teenage boys struggling to find the way to manhood. His
ability to bridge all worlds shows in the name of the
young mens program that Scot and a friend take to schools- "Footy,
Beer and Girls" He's been active in so much of the didg happenings
over the last 10 years in his State. One of the organisers of
Didgfest that ran for a number of years and guest teacher and
performer regularly at Didgbash and Didg Nights in Melbourne, as
well as running didg workshops throughout eastern Victoria, he's
always been there, his unassuming vivacious self, giving to other didg
Scot has a very unconditional relationship to didg and it shows in how didgs miraculously come into his possession and he then passes them on just as freely. The same goes for how he interacts with people in his sharings and receptivity. He started www.Didg.net way back in the 90's. It was an awesome network source over the web since didg first became a happening thing over the web. It was one of the must visit web sites.
He has recently allowed Didg.net to come to rest, as he immerses himself more in his writing, another one of his many passions and in mens work,in his area . He has recently published his first novel "One Dead Seagull" which has been very successful in a short period.
Didg may be more in the background, but in away he never had the didg out front, he simply always has, in a relaxed and out there way, just expressed himself and encouraged others to do so, with a big smile on his face and a radiant heart and a blast from a didg.
So didg is still an awesome friend and one way he shares his love of life.", Tynon

Didg Quiver - Origin & Story
Didj quiver. Is that the right term for my mob? I dunno, maybe Didj posse. Didj circus, more like.
I’ve bought a few Didjs over the years – most of them Heartland Didgeridoos. I’ve been given many more than I’ve bought and made a few unique specimens. I have 37 in my collection … maybe I should rephrase that … there are 37 Didjs that live at my joint.
I’m a big fan of slide Didjs. They make sense. The intimacy created with a timber Didj is lost on the bulk of audiences I play to. I like silly Didjs, too. I have Didjs that are also vacuum cleaners, guns, a battle axe, nun-chucks, mace, exhaust pipes (with and without pong box!), Didjs from gourds, monster agaves, MIG welded and powder coated aluminium, a box Didj and an octagonal Didj in New Guinean redwood by Chris Radings from Pakenham. Beautiful. Yeah, and when I’m playing for myself I don’t play ANY of them.
'Didjtree' -below-is a small collection of monster Agaves and cyperus didj's (witha Slidedidj for colour).
'Oldfaithful' - above and below - below is a close up of this didj I play the most.
'Beejdidj' is a collection of crazy and beautiful didjs with Bryce (nowfive)
