Hello all,

Glad to join Tarheel CGB. Just beginning to learn how make and how to play the CBG.

Vic,  what do you do with sleepy hollow?  I've watched the filming  a little.  I'm not tall and thin, so won't be acting!  Those CBG's are by Black Owl guitars.  Nice gittys and a good guy too.  Helpful with info and encouragement.

Hello All, I'm native to the Tarheel State (Asheboro) and just saw this group.  Currently Deployed to Afghanistan and received a donated 3 string last month. Any tips to learning how to play will be greatly appreciated.

 

Mike

@Chris - I saw some really sweet CBG's in a store in downtown New Bern when I was there the other week working on "Sleepy Hollow."

Comment by Chris Bennett on October 16, 2013 at 8:23pm

Just joined the group.  I'm from New Bern.  Anyone else from Eastern NC?

Hey all, If anybody wants to talk shop or drink a beer in south Charlotte just hit me up.

Ok NC'ers give me some advice in planning for upcoming festivals around NW NC in May.  There is Houstonfest this weekend in Galax, Va  http://houstonfestgalax.com/ or the french broad river festival northwest of Asheville  http://www.frenchbroadriverfestival.com/ .  The next week is Doyle Lawson's festival at Denton http://www.farmpark.com/doyle-lawson-bluegrass/ and Memorial Day weekend is either Lil' Johns at Snow Hill http://www.littlejohnsmountainmusic.com/ or Fiddler's Grove (which will not be a competion this year, just a "festival") http://www.fiddlersgrove.com/ 

Money is limited so if you had to choose one which would you choose for the best bang for the buck?  Or is there yet another option in May?

I love the days but long for the night time jamming.
