Teisco Neck value

Started this discussion. Last reply by RTZGUITARS Jul 11, 2012. 9 Replies

I saw a Teisco neck, think it is maple, at an antique store. Do you builders ever use a premade neck like this? I thought it was pretty reasonable, especially after looking at prices on ebay. $18…Continue

Thanks Letha before the Townes record I had not recorded in about 2 years.          Still Looking For You was my electric 6 string and an amp I built with a 3 in. speaker no effects. I want to mix up what i'm playing right now it Rock and Electric blues And the Beatles stuff. I will be doing some Bluegrass and it would be great to here what you think.          Take care

Letha -- I just watched a number of your YouTube videos... Mmmmmm, good stuff! Had to watch "Nobody Else But You" a bunch of times and try to play, sing and dance along! Tremendous! Like so much of your music, it just has that "instant classic" feel. You've got some really talented Benders, too! Kudos to all!

In a song writing contest,  I think playing the song alone - as well as you play- is a good idea.

New 3 string FatdaddyBlues guitars and 4 videos

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 12:16pm 8 Comments

Hi, I have been absent for a while, and am sorry that I am not able to spend a lot of time here due to some obligations and issues, you know that life thing lol...

Anyway, I did get a new 3 string FatDaddyBlues guitar, and am enjoying it. I will be doing a show on September 22nd at the White Steeple Stage in Pinckney MI. Last night, I had some time alone for the first time in a while, and I took advantage of it and stayed up late recording videos of my practice. I added it here if you…

Songwriting and Soundtracks

Posted on July 9, 2012 at 7:27pm 13 Comments

My last blog made me think, has anyone ever started a CBG songwriting group here? I know a whole lot write original music here, I have heard some wonderful creations. Just thought, maybe we should put original music all in one group, and share any dreams we have for our music, or tips on where to market it and copy rights and PROs and stuff. I don't know even if it is possible, but I think this would be a perfect site to have a CBG publishing company, dedicated only to original songs and…

Got Twittered today-not CBG but music video

Posted on July 9, 2012 at 7:16pm 1 Comment

Hi all,

This is not done on a CBG, just letting you know. I just felt like sharing the story. Some years ago, I was a member of one of the greatest songwriting groups ever called Just Plain Folks. It is friendly, and a wealth of knowledge for songwriters.http://jpfolks.com/. If you write you might like to check it out.

Anyway, sometimes we helped each other in this site. Some people couldnt play but loved to write lyrics, and vice versa, so we…

How do you delete songs that you uploaded to CBN? I'd appreciate anyone who know how to direct me, and thanks in advance.
