Eeb Tuning - Minor and 7th Chords on 3 String CBG

"Thanks Dani and Bear.I was trying to avoid a talk on chord theory but since you asked....... most CBG tunings are what's often called a "power chord" like GDg. Those notes are 1,5,1 if you count notes on the major scale. D is the 5th…"

Eeb Tuning - Minor and 7th Chords on 3 String CBG

"Hope it helps? Only massively! So, on the same theme, would sounding out the major full chord be on the fourth? Forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong please. Still very much learning this stuff. Thanks, Jim, and thanks Shane too."

Been Away

Posted on August 30, 2015 at 8:10am 14 Comments

I've kind of been away from these pages and from making instruments for the last month or so. Lots of other demands on my time from other folks and other responsibilities. I've missed it! Now that summer's winding down and the firewood pile is building up I plan to get back to doing what I love - making and playing these things. 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…

Off To Clifftop

Posted on July 24, 2014 at 9:16am 1 Comment

Hey everyone, I'll be heading to the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop, WV) soon and gone for a week. This American roots music festival leans heavily toward traditional fiddle and banjo tunes but there are also groups of blues, cajun and New Orleans brass band folks there as well - all acoustic music. 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…

Ha yall wanna hear me play! The easist thing to do then is to go out and find yourself a cat, snatch it up by the tail and beat it against a tree for awhile and yall will get a good earfull of my playing! I have only been seriously trying hard to play now for a very short while and progress is really slow. I am very enviable of your skill.
