Hi Guy's, does anyone know what has happened to the Australian site?  It looks like someone forget to pay the rent!  In all seriousness is that it closed down?  Cheers Russell Continue

Thanks Gary but riding a charity day from Brisbane to the Gold Coast on Sunday

How are you all

I am looking for someone to help me learn a 3 string CBG. Have just had my first lesson with a standard guitar and am finding it near impossible to remember the chords. As you will see from my first post I am 66 and have never been able to carry a tune. I avoided Karaoke like the plague. I live in the Noosa / Eumundi area. I am willing to pay .  Thanks

Hang on, Am I gettin' confused - just typed in and ended up seeing a page from Nigel ( great work by the way, Nige ). Been so long since I've been a member of Paul & Fleur's site...... Got no idea now - Anyway with Kenny's link below, and Nigel's site.. etc. etc - I'm sure you'll find some great info etc.

P.S. - Michael, There's a few guy's here with a heap of info on building and playing CBG's (you know who you are) - and I'm sure they'll get in touch and add you as friends on here (you will - won't you) - Enjoy!!!!
