Greasy's Easy Chords

Since i started playing these cbg's i've been wishing i had a chord book. A recent attemp to teach myself music theory gave me the idea to try to share anything i learn to help myself memorize what i've learned, and give ppl a sort of Chord Book. this will be a work in progress, so please be patient!See More

Hey Stains, I've been looking at your photo album. Nice to see all the in process photos. I like your fretting jig. Looks like it works nice for you. I like the fiddle too. I've been wanting to make a fiddle. I think they are the more difficult projects. A few more boxes and I'll be ready. I'm on #20. It will be a diddley bow, my 4th one of those. I have a nice JUJU one string pup to use and I want to do it justice.

Greetings:  Looking for a chord chart for my new CBG, tuned to G-D-G-B.  I would like a chart that shows each chord and the finger positions.  Is there any such animal???  Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the comments on the video and poor carpentry.  My dad said, "A good carpenter can hide his mistakes."   I'm not too great at hiding mine!
