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!

Festivals really put CBG's in their element.....Fly by the seat of your pants music. Love It!

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!
