CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

"Does anyone have a 3 or4string tab for "Once their was a time" this a 10 Years After tune that seems to be made for CBGs? I'm trying to work it out...not satisfied yet. Great lyrics and a Rockin rhythm."

Yet Another Fret Calc (Spreadsheet) - SAE and Metric

Posted on December 30, 2012 at 10:00am 3 Comments

Fret Calculator with compensation - SAE and Metric

Here is a simple spreadsheet I made. Again, there are MANY online and this is but one more. I did include a 1/32" nut-to-first compensation as many of us use this trick. Keeps the 1-3 frets from being sharp. Also lower the strings at the nut so the notes…

Festival CBG stand plans

Posted on August 2, 2011 at 2:30pm 5 Comments

Ya'll

 

I had a great idea to make a stand for CBGs when you take to festivals. These fold flat, and tho only hold 3 CBGs, are very effective and will be quite handy. I will post a picture of the plans and the Google SketchUp (you can download the viewer or the app -- its free).

String Spacing Calculator

Posted on March 31, 2011 at 2:28pm 0 Comments

Recently I came across this article online where this guy uses a caliper and calculations to measure the optimum, equidistant string spacing using the neck/nut width, the string gauges and number of strings, the 'margin' on either side of the first and last string and then does a specific calculation to arrive at the spacing.

 

Its not complicated but I made a spreadsheet and have an example of what to do and how to use:…

Hey Wes,

I haven't started on one yet. Just reading up, getting prepared, and looking for material sources. Currently I'm thinking of trying something simple to begin with, see how it turns out, and go from there.

Thanks, 

Wayho

Yea, I made em all myself.  I'm from North Augusta by the way.  I mostly just play in my man cave.  Sometimes I'll get with a band and play harp at their jam sessions.

If I should decide to take on another project I'll definetly get in touch. Thanks for the offer of help. My maiJn interest comes from watching a friend who lives in Easley who has built several they really look interesting and who can resist the quality of a handbuilt instrument even if it ends up as a display piece. I would give you his web address but he is not connected to the net Thanks Again Jerry

Thank-you!  Would love to know a source for a good set of plans to make a cardboard dulcimer.  My oldest son (in elem school) would like that to be our next project together.
