Yesterday I helped a friend put together his first CBG, a four-string. Today I spent a couple hours in the garage throwing together a quick-n-dirty canjo - definitely picked up some lessons for the next ones I make! But much fun had, and it sounds pretty good.

Gotta love a canjo. :-)

Seems you had a pretty good weekend, Sean. Good on you for helping a friend build his own CBG and also for building yourself a fine-looking canjo.

A pretty good weekend, indeed.
