"@A.D.EKER- Thanks for the comments! Right now I am using a brass slide that I had previously but I'm not 100% sold on it. I really would like to find a glass/Pyrex slide that fits my finger properly.

"William, here’s the Slinger’s One-finger songbook, everything is played with one finger, so it’ll be easy to play all the songs with a slide. There’s no special finger picking, just a couple simple strums & super easy…"

This is not so much of a reintroduction as a rebirth so to speak.

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.

Thanks for your comments on the Li'l bastard I built... Il do a sound clip when I get chance. As for building one, I say go for it.... its very liberating being able to build without a thought for measuring, drying times or quality control!!
