Yes I just love it here, all the great people, instruments, talent, music and history. I am really happy that you joined and enjoy this kind of music. To me it is the purest music around. Simple and from the heart and soul!
Welcome aboard, Anne-Marie! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).
Up in the Free Resources menu at the top, you will see a number of plans for building and playing cigar box guitars/ukuleles/banjos/dulcimers/violins. I encourage you to download any of the plans, take a look at them, and ask questions from there. Also our site is VERY searchable. I bet you your questions have already been asked, so take a few moments and look around.
Join our Chat sometime (see the bar at the bottom of your browser page). Keep in mind that tho the chat window says there are X number of people online, not all may have the chat window up.
I'm no musician either and have a lot to learn. Luckily we have a wealth of knowledge out there to draw from and every musician I know who has seen my guitars is more than willing to show me anything I want.
