Howdy all. New member here. I'm in Dallas and I just discovered the magic of CBGs earlier this year. I've been playing various instruments since high school, but I'm lovin' this new hobby. I went to a CBG fest in St Louis earlier this year and that was my first time touching a CBG. I'm thinking about going to the New Orleans CBG fest in January.

Are there any CBG events that are closer?

I am in Lago Vista between Austin & Marble Falls.

Been building for 2 years after seeing lot's of CBG's played at Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale.

Never played before, but have always been a big Blues fan.  I now mess around on my guitars daily.

Have so far built 3 & 4 stringers & a few UKEs.
