"Good info, but all too confusing for a beginner. He should just grab a new set of strings, and start with the 6/5/4 from the set. Tighten the strings till they're a little tighter than "floppy" and wait for the note to appear on the…"

"there are other things that come in to play also, as scale length variation will result in string tension variations, but your general string sets will work ok around the 24-25 1/2 inch scale length, usually giving you the ability to step up or down…"

"That 6th string doesn't have to be tuned to a Low E when it is placed as the lowest string on your CBG. You can tune it to a Low G. Ignore the "notes" on the 6 string set, period. Just make sure you pull 3 strings from that set that…"

"On a 6-string guitar, starting from the thickest/heaviest string, they are: 6th string = "Low" E 5th string = A 4th string = D 3rd string = G 2nd string = B 1st string = "High" E Know this - just because you are pulling those…"

"Oooo, that makes you a...yank-ee! ;-) But seriously, Jerry, the charts show you where to put your fingers. Kinda. They don't actually show you which fingers to place where to form the chords, which is why Glenn Watt's one finger chord…"

Ron "Oily" Sprague replied to Jerryrig240's discussion Stumped on tunning, lost on open D
"But if you play them with one finger across the particular fret, and sound all the notes in unison, and because g2 and G3 are two different frequencies, then you have...a chord. Never yank a yanker. :-E"

Ron "Oily" Sprague replied to Jerryrig240's discussion Stumped on tunning, lost on open D

Mr. JerryRig
Could you explain how your snare is connected to your HiHat.
I'm playing with a suitcase kick bass and a HiHat.
I wanna add the snare.
Haven't seen any photos as of yet.
Thanks Sir

Hi - have you shorted out the second coil? That should fix it if you haven't. Else just try different permutations of the connections before you solder it - should be possible to reduce it quite considerably

If you've got a plank and an E string you've got a diddly bow to test your pickup. Interesting comment - thanks

Hey Jerryrig, New Market is kinda near Louisville Ky right? I think I want to try to get a cbg gathering worked out for next summer for folks in the tristate area. Would you be onboard? I don't think I want to do a full on fest but maybe just something where all the cbg folks can get together and jam, trade building techniques and stuff like that. What do you think?

Jerryrig, thanks for the comment on my vid. Gald you liked it. I like to use heavy reverb on the vocals, big influence from The John Spencer Blues Explosion

hello just stopped by ta let you know the final pics of the red brick guitar are coming up shortly--check them out--the pickup is a tesla transducer built by ted crocker.it sounds good and i,m going to do a video soon also if you would like to hear it. thanks.

Thank you Jerryrig240. The secret really is the Pinnacle movie making software that I received as a gift from John McNair. He really fixed me up. I used to use Windows Movie Maker, but it does not have the same excellent sound quality as Pinnacle. I am only using a little Canon Power Shot SD300 camera with a built in mic to shoot the video. Thank you for your comment. Enjoy.
