Who is RayTheOtherRay?

Husband of one, father of three, database analyst and guitar player wannabe! In a previous job, my coworker had another friend named Ray. When ever he would talk about the other friend he referred to him as, "Ray, the other Ray" I figured that he must refer to me in the same way when he talked to "the other Ray," and thus, the name was born.

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

I always wondered where the other Ray was. Now I know he was building Cigar Box Guitars in Kentucky.
Sweet Baby Ray

i have a typically constructed sample cbg made up with a Scorch N Twang 3 pole pickup. it has a maple neck and a paper covered cedar? box. i have it wired straight to the jack with no volume ie. "wide open". i like this arrangement just fine - it doesn't sound too shrill or too dark to me. so if i were going to replicate this in a circuit with volume and tone pots, i would use 1 meg pots and a .022 tone cap.

a typical gibson setup of 500K pots/.022 cap would be a little warmer than that, and the typical strat setup of 250K pots/.047 cap would be warmer still.
