I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
brother jeff,thanks fer da comments.let me tell you what got me started on d-bows. the need to find something to do with smaller cigarboxes.i used to give them away,then i made a few d-bows,problem solved.the way i accumulated small boxes was buying lots on e-bay.you can get some nice big boxes that way but sometimes you gotta get the little ones too.if you have not made any d-bows yet jeff,i strongly suggest you check it out cause there is great potential in the d-bow market too.they cost less to build and take less time but they can look as attractive as your cbg,s with 3 or 4 strings on them. well almost as attractive. the playing of a d-bow is great fun jeff,if i built them just to play them that would be cool by me,but i like building them also. peace to ya brother,thanks again.talk to ya later.
