Barrelhouse '15 is recruiting! August Bank Holiday Saturday from 2.00pm at the Pavilion, Thursley Road Elstead GU8 6DU. If you fancy a set, dust off the old cbg cb fiddle or cb banjo and get in touch. Local ales, old friends on a straw bale stage!
thank you roosterman, almost got it. i have a fretless and slide and am still experimenting which finger to put the slide on.
Danny, check out my Youtube channel if you want some simple but 'straight to something you'll recognise' tutorials (while learning a few chords etc on the way). You'll find it here.
thanks brian, thats a helpful link and has answered a couple of questions i had.
Watched Reginald D Hunter on catch up, I really enjoyed his trip cross the South, can't wait to see the next two programmes! I started tapping along with the flat footing towards the end of the programme, what I liked was the fact that they are real people enjoying real music with none of the hype associated with the mainstream music scene! Plain, honest people, enjoying plain honest music!
Hi Danny, Welcome! Yeah, what Slowpaw said and you might try this fretless tutorial.
PS start building shelves to put your next 20 cbgs on.
thanks slowpaw, i'll take a butchers
hi Danny, many tutorials here on the Nation, many by Shane Speal, Chickenbone John and on youtube Keni Lee Burgess and Mike Snowden, they should teach you plenty to get started! :-)
just came across this group. my name is danny and i live in herts.i have just made my first cbg from a hardwood pallet. i glued some slats together and planed them down to aprrox 6mm thick to form the box and glued two slats together for the (fretless) neck. just got to learn how to play it now as i have no musical experience.can you guys recommend any good tutorials for total novices.
think i emailed all members with this post by mistake.
Welcome, Brian :)
