AZ CBG Group

WELCOME! Anyone is more than welcome to join! This is a place for all Arizona CBG builders/players to get together! I am hoping we can all get to know each other and maybe start something local here in AZ, be it a once a month jam, or what ever!

I am out on the east side near Florence. Have built a few, looking to do more. Should play more that I do, but love building and playing when I can.

Hello All, I'm new to CBG's. I have built 1 CBG, ! Canjo, 1 Washboard Guitar, and a 3 string Drawer guitar. Built an amp. Working on a fiddle. I'm in Peoria. AZ would love to learn to play what I've built. Please let me know if anyone is in the West Valley.

Moved to Green Valley, AZ in October of this year.  Thought I should check this site to see how many CBG'ers live in GV.  Hopefully there are a few.   I just started about 9 months ago teaching myself how to play the 3 string CBG.  I can play some tabs but cannot say I actually play.

Anybody out there?

I'm in Prescott Valley. I build several baritone cigar box ukes a year. Always interested in getting together with peers to share and play. Here are pics of my last three builds. AV%20Uke%20front.jpgAV%20Back.jpg AV%20Inside.jpg Mi%20Sue%C3%B1a%20Uke%20front.jpg Mi%20Suena%20inside.jpg Reserva%20Complete%20Front.jpg Reserva%20Whole%20Back.jpg Reserva%20Inside.jpg

I'm not sure if the group is still active or not. I'm in Cave Creek and do a few builds a year.

Except for David in Chandler, I don't see much activity. Is this group still active?

Comment by David Clewell on May 29, 2016 at 11:38am
