We're in too big of a state to have a dead forum. Sound off!!! Where ya from, what do you like to build, and what kind of music do you like to play?
I'm from a little town east of Denton called Krugerville. So far I've built a 3 string cigar box, 2 single string didly bows and a 3 string cookie tin. Since I am a music minister you might guess that I like Christian music. And, yes, I've played the cigar box and cookie tin in the worship service. I also like playing around with the blues but I'm still getting the hang of it.
Burleson here. Small town about 10 miles South of Ft Worth on I-35. Mostly 3 string stuff, but lately I've been doing 2 string basses. I also build 6 string electric and acoustic guitars. Main music style is classic rock and country, but I like nearly everything.
That's my main two as well, rock and country.
Well, hello Bryan! Didn't know you built CBG's. We'll have to get together sometime.
I'm from Nacogdoches and started building my first 3-string "strumstick" so I could learn to "play an instrument before my 70th birthday." I'm now 73 and have built about 2 dozen -- strumsticks, CBGs, several "canjoes", a "candolin, a 6-string guitar made from a wine box, and others. I've given them to family and friends -- the process has given me great joy and satisfaction. And I still plan to learn to play soon!
Very cool! Do you post any videos?
I'm from Magnolia/Tomball. I haven't built anything yet, but am looking forward to my first builds. And I don't play much, considerin' I haven't anything to play just yet either. :)
Welcome to the addiction! LOL! Magnolia/Tomball isn't one I'm familiar with. Not sure how long you've been "in the community" but it sure is a welcoming one!
Ron, did you make it back to Katy yet?
Am from Alvarado, just south of Ft Worth. I've built 10+ 3 string sliders, a strum stick a diddly bow and several fretted 3 stringers. Fixing to attempt a 4 string fretted license plate reso.
