"I have never played an instrument and now that I have built a few and given them away to family and friends I am going to attempt to teach myself to play. I really enjoy the sound of this music and plan on playing myself soon."
"Sounds great Dan, I'm not much of a player, just retired awhile back and decided I wanted to learn an instrument and I really love the CBG so I'll try to contact you and we can talk and maybe get together and play sometimes. My nephew…"
Thank you again for your comments. I really enjoy what is going on here at the Nation. A real grass roots musical movement. Getting back to the Garden again. I especially like our sense of community and helping each other in our common interest. Best Wishes of Health, Wealth, and Prosperity for you and your loved ones for the Holiday Season and throughtout the New Year. Enjoy.
Capt. Nick - how about posting some photos of your first builds so we can see what you are working on! I'm interested in seeing your first diddly bow (I've yet to make my first one).... also - is that a pontoon that you're cruising in? I live up the coast from you and am interested in getting a boat at some point but need to do a lot of research first. I would like something like a pontoon to cruise around Rehoboth Bay, but then sometimes I think I'd like to be able to go out on the ocean to do some fishing. I love to striper fish (well, any kind of fish for that matter). Fishing from the pier is ok, but the stripers like the rocks and I can't cast really far into the inlet where they tend to come in and out of the bay as the tide comes in or goes out. I fish for Tog in that area and have good luck, but on the pier, I catch a lot of shark, eel, skate, and of course, crabs.... I've landed some nice flounder, but the fish I like most, sea bass, striper, bluefish, well a boat comes in really handy....
Welcome aboard, Nick! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).
