I would love to have a CBG to give me a welcomed distraction from Afghanistan. I am deployed with the Mississippi Army National Guard and need something to work on; what better than to learn to play a CBG. I watched one of your instructional videos with the founder playing blues using a slide. Decided that is what I want to do.
Thanks Luna, I went ahead and marked this one as matched. That flag offer sounds awesome, I wouldn't mind having one myself.
Ok dude , decision time, 2 string or 3 string . Both have thier strong points, I decided to build from scratch, so it's all you buddy. All the materials are on hand so it's whatever you want, I am gonna scratch build the box so it will be more rugged. Also I need you to go to the motor pool and try deep well sockets on your slide finger so I will know what size slide to send. Shane's videos for 2 string chuggers and 3 stringers should help you decide.
i definetly would like a 3 string; been watching seasick steve; would like to learn some of that good stuff; my ring finger is a size 13; pretty big or do you use the slide on the pinky; i will try to get to a socket today; do you know of any good videos for learning to play? be sure you send me your address for the flag; thanks
gots big hands myself start lookin around 13/16 you should be in there somewhere give or take a little. soon as I get it built I will post a pic maybe even a video and give you my email address so we can exchange info. I will bump you with progress pics as we go, till then brother you know the drill keep your head down and your powder dry
thanks luna; i can't express how much i appreciate this gift; really looking forward to playing
I tried out some sockets this morning 3/4 fit; my address is

If you will send me your address and the exact name you want on the certificate, i will fly and send you a flag
Kerry, I sent your address to Luna in a private message so that your address is secure and not in the public forum area.
thanks DAN for keeping lookout for us ,it's a small service that means alot. I accidently erased that email and I still need that address but, I am not in any hurry just yet, my table saw died the death . I just got a new one today sorry for the delay KERRY but I am on the project as soon as I can get it out of the box. I have worn out three or four saws in this life and this is my first brand new table saw, like christmas in july don't ya know. To break it in on this project is just perfect as far as I am concerned.
I sent you the address again in a private message on CBN.
dude I have a friend request sent to your page we will keep all our personal addresses in private messages be better that way
I deleted that post with your address, Kerry. Don't want fan mail of the wrong kind!
