Cigar box guitars on the Bone Collector on the Outdoor Channel

Posted on July 4, 2010 at 5:25pm 0 Comments

There is someone named Mark that was featured on Michael Waddell's "Bone Collector" show on the Outdoor Channel. Does anyone know who he is? Is he a member of CBN? On the show he built a CBG that was went to Iraq and came back with signatures of soldiers on it. It was awesome. Anyone have any information on this?

Hey Tim Just getting back to you. I would love to set and talk to you. I am doing an event this Saturday. I will be selling CBG's from Crocker and Kits from Gitty and Rocky Mountain Slides. I'll be at the Gardens and Arts center at Clapp Park. Come by and see me.

Tim, thanks for the tips on podcasting. I have decided to pay for file storage on my "Boxheads United Wordpress blog to host the podcast. You will find a link to the homepage in the podcast group which should lead you to the rss feed. Thanks again for your help and continued support of the show

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
