"Sometimes a buzz will come from lack of tension over the nut. If its not that raise the bridge or file them down is your only options."

Marty O replied to Craig Cox's discussion restring resonator in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"Use an A, D and G String and then tune the  A to G. This then tunes the CBG to a G chord (1st 5th Octave). For a banjo tuning of G B D you could use an A, and 2 x D strings. Tune the A string to G, a D string to B and keep the other D string…"

Craig Cox replied to John Stevenson's discussion Tools to buy for first attempt at a build
"If you're going with frets, then I recommend the Japanese flush cut saw from Harbor Freight. Less than $10, & the teeth are just right for the depth of medium fret wire. After your first build (or during) you'll decide what would make…"

Hi Craig. Nice to hear from you, and thanks for the kind words regarding the da Vinci guitar. It turned out surprisingly well. Funny how that happens. I'm hoping to get to York this year but it buts right up to when I have to take my daughter to college. Might be tricky timing. I take it you're planning on going? Sure hope to see you there.

Hello Craig.

I read your comment. If you are interested in learning songs for 3 string CBG, please check out my instructional video CD 4. www.ebay.com Search: keni lee. The CBG is tuned GDg (Key of G). Additionally, you may find CD1 helpful too. It also contains 3 string CBG lessons, but with the CBG tuned and strung DAd. (Key of D) Due to the fact the intervals between the strings are the same, 151 from the Major scale, all the fret positions are the same. The CBG just sounds in another key. CD1 is mainly for 6 string guitar tuned in open D. (DADf#ad) Although, what I have been teaching students is that there is a relativity to open tunings. I basically reduce the 6 string arrangements into 3, 4, or 5 string arrangements. On CD 1, I teach "You Got To Move" for 6 string. After working with the CD 4 lessons, you will easily understand the approach, and be able to play this song on 3 string CBG. Enjoy your practice.
