new kid on the block

Hi everyone

I'm not really used to this "Ning" thing, and I still have to discover how things work
on here, so I don't know where I need to post a presentation of myself on this forum...
ok, let's try here :D

After a long time at reading and listening to Cigar Box Nation, I finally took
time to register and create a profile on the forum :-)

Just finished building my first CBG

And boy does it suck!!
The good news is that I've learned so much from the mistakes that I made on this one that I'm sure the ones to come will be much much better

Three CBGs and Garageband..

After I finished my oldest son's CBG , I made this little ditty using the three CBGs that I had built to date. Normally I play a lot of blues but, this one came out.....different.

I'll post some pics of these units later. My youngest son's three string features a wammy bar!

NEW ALBUM! Cows & Crocs & Dirty Socks! Available at cdbaby.com

I just finished a cbg lo-fi folk rock album. It is essentially a children's album (at least that was the idea when I started).

If you're into homegrown cbg music head over to www.cdbaby.com/withrowkirk3 and check it out. Leave a review or otherwise let me know what you think. Thanks.

As a novice...

Thank you, very much. It was unfamiliar a bit to me posting and blogging, the web surface have played a trick on me, and that's why I sent a short bio like this. The documentation is NOT that "tabu" -address, of course.

If you interested in the DiY-way of the CBG-making, the full link is this:
