howdy all, I only think its proper I should join this group since I live in colorado. And I was inspired by my guru Hector Pen'a  in old town alb.   If anyone has seen him let him know I built my first and my grand children built theres with my help, and I got me a queen b in the woyks'  all i need is some mojo

Welcome Kevin, I don't get on here to much, not much activity. if you learn the 12 bar blues scale, on your cbg, you can play many songs, good luck.

HI All;

My wife and I are in the process of closing on the sale of our house and moving to New Mexico from Alaska. We should be on our way later this week, we have a home north of Alamogordo.

I'm working on my 8th build and my first song (I don't know how to play the darn things)

So we didn't get nothing done this last year. It's my fault though, I was busy tring to succeed in a gift shop but failed, life goes on. Maybe this summer, any idea's?

Who is your source Zandi? I went by my favorite cigar shop, and someone bought hundred boxes or so, I was told.
Comment by Zandi Z on October 19, 2010 at 5:11pm
Someone has been drying up my source of boxes in ABQ...i suspect it could be one of y'all.....???.... at least, i hope it is....
or are there some secret builders out here we don't know about ???
i know there is interest out there....
i took a few of my builds to the Arts and Crafts Festival here last weekend to show somone and was surrounded by lots of interested people in a flash....
unfortunately, i'm still trying to get better both at building and playing, myself ...
still just building for beloved musician relatives and friends...when Time permits, that is...zz.
