"Actually Keni Lee has some good stuff along those lines- listen to his lesson on "Sittin' on Top of the World." Also if you listen to some of the old classic banjo tunes, you can take those ideas and transpose them to CBG- works…"
I know, many people here are builders and I shouldn't complain. I'd just be nice if some of those who do have the skills would clue us green horns in a bit, especially when we ask for a little help.
In the text file is a turn…"
"I really only barre at the 5th at 7th frets, but wish I knew more as well.
To be able to better answer your question, what are you tuned to? My CBG is tuned GDg and I will look up some chords and post them. I should really know the answer to your…"
"My burden comes from going back to school as I felt called to do. Now, three years since completing my schooling, I am not finding jobs in my profession and only barely working in the area of my calling.

"ok to answer a few questions cause i think i confused you sorry bout that. 1st answer is yes the biscuit sets on all three cans in the arturo fuente tri-can resonator. 2nd answer is the flux capacitor was removed from the arturo fuente box[not…"
"I saw some pictures of your tri-can Arturo Fuente; does the biscuit bridge sit on each of the cans then? Also, is there a shim or something that keeps the flux capacitor from touching the lid or is there no need for flux cap? Do you want the bottoms…"
"I used roll pins as you can see in the photo below, they work really well and you can get them in a variety of diameters and lengths. I've heard of people embedding the ferrules of their old guitar strings to prevent the strings from ripping…"
ok to answer a few questions cause i think i confused you sorry bout that. 1st answer is yes the biscuit sets on all three cans in the arturo fuente tri-can resonator. 2nd answer is the flux capacitor was removed from the arturo fuente box[not enough room in it]so i attached the cans to the lid then i put the flux capacitor into the old world box with taller cans attached to it. the flux capacitor does not touch the lid in the old world box the whole unit floats and the biscuit attached to the flux capacitor is only a resting spot for the bridge biscuit,so there will actually be 2 biscuits.the last answer is i did not want the bottom of the cans to touch the lid originally but that was the only way to make it work in the arturo fuente box and it turned out a little better than i expected it to. hope this helps.
my first one that is finished had shallow cans but i could not fit the flux capacitor[the three plates connected to da buiscuit] in the box with it. so i just screwed the lid of the box to the cans or rather screwed the cans to the lid of the box. then cut the buiscuit hole in the lid without the cans in it so the buiscuit sets on all three cans. when its all put back together.
I shaped the majority of that headstock with various woodfiles... big, large flat ones for the triangle shape, and I have this very thin, round file which is almost a perfect match for the threaded rods I use for nuts. The triangle part took a LONG time to do, but the nut-groove went pretty quick.
