I don’t change easily. I love CBN and don’t think i’ll Jump ship. Thanks for the sweet instrumental Wal.

Nice Tribute to one of the greatest voices you will ever hear, and as Uncle John states there are many CBG FB sites, BUT!, I personally believe this is, and hopefully will continue to be the Best!, so like yourself, "I'm Staying Here"   :-D

Maybe so UJ. But this is, as you say, a good place. Build, play, repeat. Recycle the rubbish, give the good stuff away (but keep the best for yourself!). Spread the joy, and have fun. Don't see FB doing that...

This is a good place, Wal.  But FB is gaining strength, members, commenters and contributors.

Comment by Wal Callaby on August 17, 2018 at 2:18pm

Are there Facebook CBG sites then? I don't do any other social media than this I'm afraid- I've got a few real friends, and once working, building gits, playing hits, planning gits and drinking red wine are all done, there's little time for imaginary ones. I also don't whether any of the Facebook sites have attached parts stores like Gitty, so I'm staying here.

What I have been doing is trying to broaden my repertoire and techniques- and there's a bunch of thoughtfully conceived solid-bodied gits comin' down the pike. Like I said- there just ain't enough hours in the day...

Good on yer, Wal.  A nice mournful tribute to a great lady of music and soul.  Thank you. 

If I could have thought of something I could do decently, I would have posted for her too.  I  looked back on your previous videos.  It had been too long.  You have some good stuff to share.  Are you on the CBG sites on Face Book?  It seems like they are getting stronger and CBN is feeling weak.
