New to CBGs

Hello ,I had heard about cigar box guitars a few years ago from my brother and never really gave them much thought, then recently I saw some You Tube vids and was hooked!
Guitar Players always seem to want expensive fancy guitars , but the sound you can get from 3 or 4 strings is amazing! I love the simplicity and downhome playability of these guitars.

check out my website and my vids on You Tube, look up

New Song

Posted on April 26, 2009 at 11:05pm 0 Comments

I added a new song I made up last week on my new 4 string CBG, just finished it today. A little rough as far as the electronics , I need to find a nice 4 pole pup for the guitar then I could really rock. The piezo is not bad but would really like a better pup for it. Anybody getting rid of one let me know.

Hey everyone, I have not been on in awhile. I had my neck surgery Sept 3rd and it went well. I have lost some feeling in both hands, more so in the left due to the spinal compression. I have started playing again and I believe God will restore my feeling and strengthen my left arm also! Any prayers you all can muster up would be greatly appreciated, God bless all nation members!!

I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

Hey, any new CBG's?

The song I posted today is an instrumental, but to me it is an attempt musically to remember the Reigning Power of God in my life. No matter how uncontrollable life can seem sometimes ,if God is veiwed as the power and authority in your life your problems can shrink to molehills rather than mountains!
