McTRUSTRY CBGs @ BYRON BAY BLUESFEST 2012

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!

Nigel,

Excellent! Was gettin' pretty tribal there in the evening. I'm surprised no one showed up to blow a didj...we've got a guy here who plays didj and congas which works amazingly well with this kinda blues. Good on yer!
