My name is Del Puckett - I moved to Portland (Hillsboro) one year ago.  I've met Sony (Chickiboom) and Hard luck Chuck so far... Glad to be here !!!

Hey William - we should get in touch. I'm in Clackamas and was just learning a 6 string when I got drawn into the CBG world a couple years ago. This site is great for building tips, tricks & ideas plus great videos here and on YouTube.

I live in Portland, and I have finished 2 CBGs and 1 CBBass. I am working on my 3rd CBG, presently. I've been trying to learn to play my 2 string bass, and 3 string guitar by learning to read tablature, and watching videos. Are there any other novices in the area who are into building CBGs and learning to play?

Hi! Anyone else from Washington State here? I'm in Bremerton, just across the Puget Sound from Seattle. CBG's don't have any real presence here. None even at FolkLife-I know, I asked.

Just got around to searching through all of these groups. Northwest group! Too cool!

I'm in Medford. I try to play a little, but mostly a builder. I've always been building something, most recently knives and motorcycles but now of course obsessed with CBG's to the exclusion of most everything else. 

I see a few years back this group talked about local events a lot. Would love to hear more about things happening around here. They are having some sort of CBG thing at the Eugene Saturday Market this June I believe, but doesn't seem to be much info available yet.

Hi Tim - beautiful part of OR you live in. I'm out in Clackamas but got a chance to do the Minam Lake/lake basin loop a couple years ago. Still have those pics as my screen saver, sigh.

Hello Gang. I'm in Cove Oregon.

Cool Mark. I used to hop up to Medford  from Mt. Shasta once a month to do my tax free shopping. I lived in Ashland, Talent, and worked in Jacksonville  for awhile. I still have some acquaintances in the area but not many as time goes by. Thanks for the info.

Friend request sent, Moedecker. I moved from Carson City to Medford Oregon in 2012. I'm originally from Medford, so I basically came home. There are several great builders up here. I'm not sure about K-Falls, but Bend is home to Low Budget Luthier, and you won't meet a nicer guy. He's a fantastic builder too.

PKB - You need to hook up with Downtown Vinny here on The Nation. He's based in Eugene, but he knows a lot of folks around northern Oregon. If nothing else, he can help guide you toward the right folks for playing at Saturday Markets and such.
