Started this discussion. Last reply by Cause the Blue rat Feb 9, 2020. 5 Replies

So I notice on the CBGitty chord poster they list Dminor as 2-3-2. This confused me because it's A-F-A, in other words the root D is missing. It should be D-F-A.So I looked into this and it seems, to…Continue

"With the MGB how much routing do you have to do on your neck? They look a bit larger than the wickedbucker... or can you just stick them on?"

"This is a related topic so I hope you don't mind me asking. Has anyone had any experience of these 'flat' pickups? CBGitty do the wickedbucker and there is also the boxbucker by MGB. I assume they are better than a piezo but not as…"

"OK this part is confusing me: First finger second fret and second string open. - This would be A and D. Is that what you mean? First finger third fret second string. Third finger fifth fret third string - so like E, B, G? Remember I'm new to…"

Chord without root?

So I notice on the CBGitty chord poster they list Dminor as 2-3-2. This confused me because it's A-F-A, in other words the root D is missing. It should be D-F-A.So I looked into this and it seems, to my surprise, that it is sometimes allowed.What do you guys think about this?My problem is I'm trying to play a C#minor low down on the neck and of course I'm lacking the C# down there. I can play 1-2-1 however which is G#-E-G#. C#minor should be C#-E-G#.Thanks.See More

"Forgot to mention if you take EBE a step lower you’re in DAD which is lower in tension than EBE & gives more of a delta vibe? Easy on the hands?"

BrianQ. replied to Warren Williams's discussion Is EBE tuning more tension or less? in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"EBE is intended for strings 4,5,6- E,A,D. GDG is intended for strings 3,4,5- A,D,G. With that said, if you tune the E string 1 1/2 steps higher to G, it will have way more tension than using an A string tuned down 1 step to G? So really it’s…"
