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

Thank you for your comment. The complete Spanish Fandango lesson can be found on my instructional video CD 2. It is for sale on www.ebay.com by searching: Keni Lee If you go to the auction page, you will find a link to the free first lesson. Enjoy.
