New to CBG

Comment by John Bartlette 4 hours agoDelete Comment

John here,I live in southwest Missouri (the Ozarks) and I'm 62 years old and about the only thing musical I could play was the radio. I was born with just a thumb and 2 stubs on my left hand and a thumb and 2 fingers on the right hand. I stumbled onto a you tube video with Justine Johnson showing how you can play a 3 string CBG with 1 finger. I have twice as many as needed. Now learning 3 string fretted with Patrick Curley lessons and have advanced to lesson 4. I have to play left handed in order to fret and have some chord challenges but working through them. Neat to be able to play music after all these years.
