About Whiskey Bob Taylor

I've been playing traditional pre-WWII blues and ragtime guitar in and around Chicago for about 20 years now. On Father's Day a few years ago, my son and I built our first CBGs at our kitchen table as a way of teaching him some hands on blues history (the wife was pissed!). Turns out I was the one who got schooled. Now I've built about 20 of them and a washtub bass. I actually play my CBGs more than my '33 National Duolian nowadays. CBGs have reignited my passion for slide guitar.

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

Howdy Bob,
I tried to post this in the "It goes to 11" group, but it won't let me join for some reason. So here is a link to a piezo preamp/buffer in an altoid box.
Have a good one, Pat.
