Hello,
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

Thanks for your kind comments on my video.
I'm a former San Diego resident, myself . . . but it was years and years ago.
OB, Mission Valley and then Santee/Lakeside area. Beautiful places.

By the way - Great job getting Zachary involved, Gotta love it when kids take up an instrument.
