Ya, thats the spirit Steve! My buddy Bill is on his way over now for our usual weekly practice. We are trying to tighten up 3 original songs before we go into the studio to record them. Beer and food makes the practice go a whole lot better. LOL

Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee

Hello Steve,

Yes, CD 4 is a good place to start. CD 6 is part 2. By simply retuning from GDG to ADF# the CBG functions differently (same strings). The GDG tuning is best for bottleneck slide, shuffle blues rhythms, walking bass lines, playing two notes at the same time (double-stops) on the first two strings,etc. The ADF# provides a system of movable chords that functions very similar to a 6 string guitar. It makes strumming chords easy, especially if you use a fake book of your favorite band or artist. You will have no problem finding the substitute 3 string CBG chords you need. Feel free to contact me if any questions arise as you work through the lessons. Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee

Saw your reference to the Animals version of Roadrunner, I had forgotten they did it even though in my yoof I spent alot of time at the Club A'gogo where the animals were the resident band.Still prefer Bo Diddleys original though.

When the missus got the christmas tree out of the loft she discovered this












Which got me all nostalgic so I built a gogo three stringer
