Just found this guy a couple of days ago. He is a long time guitar player but only a few months on a cigar box guitar. He already has tons of content on his youtube channel.

Enjoy,

Small world. I have a guitar he used to own!

That's pretty cool. In one of his videos he noted that his CBG is in this months Vintage Guitar magazine. Can;t recall who built it.

Thanks for sharing, never seen his video's before, the one I just watched was very Ozzy-esk, and extremely detailed in his instructions, I definitely bookmarked and subscribed to his channel.

He's great!  His lessons really helped me convert pretty much anything I can play on a six string, to a 3 string.  In one video he's said he's overwhelmed by the welcoming in the community.  He seems humble, and very nice.

If you’re learning to play 3-string CBG, want to take your playing to the next level, or just want some new songs to play; Uncle Mark is a must check out. Very useful material!!!

I’m using his videos everyday.

I checked him out and now wish those lessons had been around when I started in 07' or so.  Good lessons.  Detailed.  Well explained.  More theory than some folks would want.  I may look some more, but the truth is, I am kind of settled into doing the simple stuff I do. 

You don't need to know any of the theory to play the songs since he shows exactly how to play them. As he says he just keeps throwing the theory out there so it can be learned by osmosis instead of trying to memorize everything.

now i cant stop playing La Grange...lol got to watch some more videos...

"Just Got Paid" is big fun too. Too bad I can't play it at speed, but I'll get there. LOL
