One day, after working at the music store, I came home to discover that Bo Diddley had died. The news really put a cloud over my day.

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

Hi Gary
Thanks for the Friends invite it's a honor
also many thanks for the great comments you added to my photos - i have been looking through yours and i must say your a fantastic Craftsman you got some wicked builds my friend
your ukes look a million $'s mate - i'm doing a uke very shortly , bought a martin style uke neck some time since now but never got around to building the rest as yet but it's on the short list ( bought the uke neck because it was very cheap on ebay - it's a well made one by the looks of it) i will be making a template from it

sorry about the screw-ups with the live chat last night/this morning for me - my modem was going hey wire it's never done it before !! every time i wrote a message and clicked to enter it to the live chat the message was never sent and the modem dropped the connection - very strange
well my friend hope to chat again
look after yourself
Best regards from the UK
juju.
