You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin': 3-String Surf SLG License Plate Guitar (Not a Cigar Box Guitar)

"Thanks guys (Uncle John, Kale, A.D., and Danny)! After recently seeing Top Gun - Maverick, I knew this song needed a 1-finger CBG arrangement. I really enjoy doing this one. Yep, all songs have their unique histories with us!"

Thanks for checking in DougThorsvik. I guess I got in a little CBG funk around the time of DaveLynas passing, and got a bit busy with other stuff too. I trust you’re still slingin’ the hits and the two string wonders!

How Tight are Those Strings? What Scale Length Should You Use? - USTC Can Help You Figure it Out!

Posted on January 10, 2009 at 10:55pm 1 Comment

You can save the settings for future… Continue

Creating Chord Charts for a Given Tuning - Fret can do it for you!

Posted on January 10, 2009 at 10:24pm 1 Comment
