Thank you Charlie for coming out today. Always nice to meet a cyberfriend from the Nation in real life. LOL Hey, do good in school! You don't want to end up like old Keni Lee sitting out in the middle of Times Square making about $10 for two hours of work. It is like the old song, New York New York: If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere. I better starting looking for "anywhere" first. LOL Enjoy.

I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

Got any good schematics for your preamps?

>>>So I've been into making little 9v amps built in to cigar boxes (with the lm386) and i've started to wonder about these pricey components that I'm getting at Radio Shack...
What if...I could make them myself?/body>
