I went to the PA CBG Fest this weekend and feel rejuvenated. Got to play on the open mic stage and meet a bunch of talented people. It was great to talk to J.Rob…

One thing I love about this festival is that the overwhelming majority of the 3,000 + people who attend play music at various levels. There are a few who just come to listen but it's…

"Thanks for the demo. Is there much difference in volume and tone between the 2 p/u's?" - Jim.... tone wise, I think the 7.50 might be a lil darker.

I clicked on the post tab, I was able to post it there under performance. I labeled it video link for the 2x4 challenge. Hope you can find it. Let me know. This Tuesday I am going over to my neighbors, he is s in a bluegrass band and the fiddle player will be there. So I should be able to make a second video. Thanks for you help
