How to Play 'No Particular Place To Go' on 3-string CBG

I've been trying to post a CBG lesson each month in 2021 so I'm trying to squeeze on in for April. This is a great song to learn to play and sing. It's very simple due to the structure and strumming pattern. You can do this on any 3-string CBG tuned I-V-I (e.g. G-D-G) whether it's fretted or fretless.

Simple and fun! Way to break down a classic Chuck Berry tune Kale. It is a favorite of mine to play on my 3-string and on my uke!

Thanks AD. I'm hoping folks find this video helpful. There are a lot of people who think they can't sing and play but this song is a great way to get used to it.
