How to Make a SONG Your OWN

"Great points Del! My viewer tip: Not being “true”musician, whenever I show my “CBG skills” to people,  I tell them, ”I don’t know how to play, but I play what I know how to”"

"Great points Del. I learned turning off the negative filter during writing and that has helped me at least get the process rolling on a new song and at times for learning an existing one. And my wife reminds me I don't have to try to sound like…"

How to Make a SONG Your OWN

What is the piece that you first played in your YouTube video titled "EQUALIZERS"?
Also I'm doing my first build and I'm glued to your videos. I'm trying to figure out the cut at the tail end of a 17" cigar box? You go from 3/16" to 3/8", how do you determine that calculation? I'm using a 25.5 scale 17 frets which places the bridge at 9.5" from the front end, should I go with a longer neck?
Thanks for any advice

I really liked your The Versatility of the "3 String Cigar Box Guitar" video. I'm curious about the nylon string gdg guitar example. Looks like it would fit in a airline carry on bag. Not much info out there on using nylon strings with 3-stringers. What scale length and strings were you using? I know how to figure tensions out with steel strings, but I have no clue with nylon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Del. Just wanted to say I find your videos really inspirational. Just watched your latest YouTube video on your 3 string CBG. You mentioned it's fretted in the E minor scale. Forgive my ignorance please but is that the 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 (for the middle string blue note) & octave? You're inspiring me to try a ruler neck and the same fretting.

Please, please keep up the awesomeness. I'm a fan already!
