Some of you might find this guitar book useful. Of course, it is for six string guitar, but it covers open tunings and playing slide guitar. Should be fairly simple to translate to CBG. I am about to print out a copy for myself.

Hope this helps some of you.

Hah! The author mentions Son House on page 90.
After reading the first few sections, I can honestly say this is one of the better beginner books that I have seen. The author starts you out in Open G tuning so that you can just play bar chords and focus on strumming and rhythm. The teaching style is very laid back and focuses on folk/country/blues style songs. So far I am enjoying this book.
Thank you Jacob, I"m into the Tao and I'm digging this book, thanks for sharing this excellent find.
That banjo guy?? I have seen his videos.

after looking at this a little more.....i realized that i'm subscribed to the author's 'you tube' page....he's got stellar tutorials that he calls 'the daily frail.' very good stuff indeed.
