I was born in Suffern, I’ll prob’ly die in Paine.
I grew up halfway between South Park and Columbine.
My stompin’ grounds have been all over the western half of the continent, from Seattle to Taos, from Denver to Blue Lake, to Virginia City.. .
I’ve sung the streets and the coffee bars and saloons of America for over thirty years.
I’ve fed thousands of people.
I build precious things. .
I build guitars and ukelele from old cigar boxes and boards.
Some things you do for money, some things you do for love.
I’m still broke, but I’ll sing you a sing if ya want.
Yeah, Here’s one for you.

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

Here is where Perfesser Blue joins those august sages in mentioning that the new CBG shop will be set up in Denver this Spring...
Im done with Portland and moving upcountry at the beginning of the month.
Also, Ive acquired 3 new Camacho Liberty boxes to make acoustic parlour guitars with...Best acoustic sound Ive found so far.
For a sample, listen to "No Rest For The Wicked".
Recorded on the Hobo Friend last September.
I will always be in the market for those Liberty boxes, so let me know if you have any leads on finding them.
My best to all...
From the Open Road,
Thanks for the friendship!
By and large, though, I have not noticed a huge amount of difference with a tone plate, much more important is to have good resonance in your soundbooard and bracing.
resonate like crazy, do you have a sound sample with that one?
