Saw Moreland & Arbuckle at the 2010 Wild About Flower Mound Festival yesterday. I love those guys and always try to catch a gig when they are in town. It was a good show despite the low turnout and high heat. Even though it was a 6:30 show, the guys were playing while facing the hot Texas sun so they were sweating their asses off.

I paint everything, some are oil, most are acrylic and I spray them with a clear coat of 'Deft', it's the best. Thanks for looking. If you are in the southern california area, i have them up at a couple of art shows and we are playing some local gigs. keep in touch.

Welcome aboard, Chris! 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.

Most of all, have fun!
