Therapy needed?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Tinker Mar 20, 2011. 3 Replies

I was watching Goldfinger last night, and found myself noticing a cigar box during a meal scene and wondering if it would make a good cbg. Do I need help?

My new Cigar Box Banjo. I've never played Banjo before so this is my first video after a few days of playing.

"Wow, good luck in keeping it that tidy - or is it just me that starts out like that and ends up with an incredibly confused mess?"

Nice looking bass. I made one based on Havlena's cookie tin bass that sounded pretty good. Took it to a jam to try it out and sold it before I could demo it on video. Working on another one since I've spools of weedwhacker line sufficient for about twenty or so.

http://youtu.be/0cctpWVftQI Hey Chris I didn't want to post this since it's not CB related but thought you might want to hear how I do this in another setting.

Hey Chris,

I love your version of The Wildwood Flower, it's one of my favourite tunes. Good to see another UK based CBGer.

Hi Chris

'How dare he suggest such a thing,' she blustered! ;-) I'm trying to get her 'on the Nation' to prove her worth! (and HGMC of course) B-)

Yer, I'll be working on my new, true image soon!

The bow did get replaced on a like for like basis at eye watering expense to the insurance company. The gift from her grandfather, when she was a student, gained a lot in value during the passing (45ish cough) years. She's now got a 'cheap' bow for scratching her cbg fiddle as well.

You might try this guy too (Dave Ingledew), he helped me a lot with the parts for the fiddle:

I'll be using him again for Mk2 as my client complains about the dept of the box I used. Cheek!
