Hi Mark,
Nice to see your builds posted today. Great work. I remember seeing your work on one of the steampunk pages. You seem to do a lot of uke type guitars. I just finished a bari and I am working two soprano's (one with an old box).
Cheers, Andy

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
