Hello All, I'm new to this site and always looking to learn from what's out there on YouTube and here as well. Some have lessons on playing, building and helpful tips on both. I've subscribed to some like Shane Speal, Del Puckett, Southern Fire Guitars, Gitty, MGB, Marc Lebone, Chicken Bone John, and several others too. I want to recommend one for you today and I'll like to hear some suggestions from you all on your recommendations. The one I recommend is "Hotsauce Guitar Kitchen" on YouTube. I'll leave a link at the bottom. Del Puckett recommended him while he was taking a break and relocating, (Del does show up from time to time with an update and all his episodes can still be watched. I find myself going back for hints on building). Brian from Hotsauce Kitchen is great, You feel like your right in his kitchen with him getting in the way, lol, Yes, he's building in his kitchen! He has some incredible builds and ideas that makes you really think. He is also a Bible Scholar which is a plus to me! Its great to forget about this ever increasing Crazy World for a bit by seeing what he's is up to. Also a good reminder that we need to "Watch and Pray" Back in the 1963 there was a movie called, "Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" which was funny, What we are seeing now in today's World is not funny. On those that spend there time putting videos out there for us, well, I think we all need to give credit where credit is due, There is so much out there in the CBG world that is free and very informative. We need to support them by likes, subscribing, and a comment. You guys post your favorites and I'll support them too. Thank you all......Jack Gray, Fayetteville, NC
