Hi Arlan.  I am no maestro, but I am glad to have you for a CBN friend.   The video that helped me and many others get going is knotlenny's CBG 101.    You can google and find that or go to page top here on cbn and hover over resources, click on 'how to play' and then find that teaching video and others.   My CBN friend Andries Ekker is also from Holland.  Balkburg, I think.  Good wishes.
