McTRUSTRY CBGs @ BYRON BAY BLUESFEST 2012

Posted on May 16, 2012 at 7:00am 4 Comments

I am always blown away and inspired by the players that come through my stall at The Bluesfest.

From seasoned players to absolute beginners.

Always a thrill to get someone who has never played a cbg (or guitar) before up and running.

Here is some footage. All shot on my phone. Next time i'll do it all sideways.

Fun Fun Fun!

It's a long video so maybe grab a beer or a cup of Tea

or a cbg and jam along!

both kids born in aderlaide.

use to spend time in northern nsw coolest place on earth and now a following of cbg,s

im real enviousness.lived tamborine mt for quite some time worked at warner studios

only learning cbg but im real hooked as its far more forgiving than a 6string plus love early blues.learning from curlly the man in cbg tent he has helped to here the sounds

so i can learn quicker but rather be there in person.latters

Howdy, Nigel, my breeks are hanging on a shakey nail in my workshop but will need to don some trousers for France- not one of the sans- cullottes, mon ami. :-)

Vicky sent me a jam video from the stall via facebook. Only I can't figure out how to get it from there to you. Got a facebook page?

At 4:21am on April 15, 2012, Penny Nelson said…

oh Forgot to mention to you I have a friend Starting a Blues open mic night at the Marsden hotel. Their band plays for an hour and then they open it up for any to jam. Shes very keen to get the CBG'ers there. The last one was started at 2pm on a Sunday so its good as its a reasonably early night. I'll let you know the date of the next one as soon as I find out.
