Hi Craig. Nice to hear from you, and thanks for the kind words regarding the da Vinci guitar. It turned out surprisingly well. Funny how that happens. I'm hoping to get to York this year but it buts right up to when I have to take my daughter to college. Might be tricky timing. I take it you're planning on going? Sure hope to see you there.

Hello Craig.

I read your comment. If you are interested in learning songs for 3 string CBG, please check out my instructional video CD 4. Search: keni lee. The CBG is tuned GDg (Key of G). Additionally, you may find CD1 helpful too. It also contains 3 string CBG lessons, but with the CBG tuned and strung DAd. (Key of D) Due to the fact the intervals between the strings are the same, 151 from the Major scale, all the fret positions are the same. The CBG just sounds in another key. CD1 is mainly for 6 string guitar tuned in open D. (DADf#ad) Although, what I have been teaching students is that there is a relativity to open tunings. I basically reduce the 6 string arrangements into 3, 4, or 5 string arrangements. On CD 1, I teach "You Got To Move" for 6 string. After working with the CD 4 lessons, you will easily understand the approach, and be able to play this song on 3 string CBG. Enjoy your practice.
