Event Description

CBG Builders & Players,

The Carolinas Box Guitar Club meeting #19 will be Saturday August 5, 2017 at 11:00am at Taxco Mexican Grill [Mint Hill location], 7106 Brighton Park Dr., Mint Hill, NC across the parking lot from the Harris Teeter.  We will continue having a monthly meeting on the first Saturday of each month.

Our purpose is to help members develop skills to build and play the 12-bar Blues on their 3-string, fret-less, electric, box guitars.  We currently have 18 on our email list.

Bring a few of your projects for show and tell.  As usual we will discuss individual building and playing issues.

For our monthly playing topic, we will use our picking skills to play a shuffle beat for a 12-bar blues chord pattern.  The rhythm will be as follows:
1 + - 2 + - 3 + - 4 + -  Beats expresses as "one and ugh, 2 and ugh . . ."
A   A B   B A   A B      Notes


Again, we will have special guest, Steve Chapman, at this meeting sharing his jamming expertise.

This should be another exciting meeting.
