So I just finished a new project, and as I did I started to play around with it. And I started to think, I have the same songs I try every time I bring an instrument in tune. I finger-pick the Star…Continue

I’m a pretty primitive builder as far as it goes. Frets made of super glued toothpicks, string of several gauges of fishing line.  I don’t do it because I’m good at it, I do it because it is fun. I…Continue

"100% with you on how each instrument has its own signature tune. Subjectively or in fact some songs just sound better on certain instruments. I’ve got one that buzzes like crazy but in a low register, that’s the one I try to play Black…"

Tune up songs

So I just finished a new project, and as I did I started to play around with it. And I started to think, I have the same songs I try every time I bring an instrument in tune. I finger-pick the Star Wars main theme and “London bridge is falling down” and try the chords to the Eagles “Peaceful Easy Feeling.”  So I ask the community, what are the songs you play when you want to make sure a new project is in tune and ready for the world? THNX for any replies, and this discussion is a no judgement…See More

CBGer’s Lament

Posted on October 2, 2021 at 5:11pm 1 Comment

I went to the Beer store and what did I see?

Three Padron boxes—just looking at me.

I jumped and yelled, surprised at my luck.

They cost me each fifty cents and a buck.

And pondered what to do with my…
