I built my first CBG three or four weeks ago. I built it as a gift for a fellow firefighter who is retiring. I have played the crap out of it. So as the time neared to give it away, you guessed it , I had to build another one :-)) I have stumbled into a new found passion now ! I am about to start my third one. All my friends and family are amazed that you can make music with such a simple instrument. Anyway I was surfing the net trying to get advice on my second build and chicken bone John sent me here. So let the fun begin :-)
