Awesome playing! Had to check I was still breathing while watching this.

Hey Richard thank you very kind! I have long fat fingers on hands like shovels, so there's one advantage to building cbg's with wider spacings, it helps a lot. In my case I just about manage the Fender but some cheap Far Eastern guitars have even narrower spacings especially the first 3-5 frets.

The transition from six to a 3 & 4 string is quite a change, especially the very low action on an electric 6, good point. I’m use to playing an Ovation, the play is a bit higher than a regular electric 6, so that helped me a bit. There is the advantage of a smaller neck on CBGs though, a good trade off for short finger guys like myself. Great great job covering Mark Knopfler as AGP says, no easy task.

Thanks Dave!, I'm adapting chords& voicings where possible. Incidently Guys, as you know I built a 3 & a 4 string very similar, this is the 4, various tunings possible, this video is in ADGB, but there's also GDGB & ADF#A, which I've tried to check tone/sound. I'm sure there's more that someone out there will know.

Some fancy chording and melody work Denbo. Pretty stuff.

Thanks Clint & AGP #, still work in progress though :))

Yep!, very nice 3 string adaption of a Mark Knopfler classic!  :-)

Comment by Clint Spotts on August 11, 2019 at 4:08pm

That was real nice.

Thanks Uncle, it's easier (& better) on my strat with it's ultra-low action. However I need to be able to play this with a slide & different tuning also so I need the action higher, one of the compromises to get used to.
