CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

"hello! Guitar building question, do I measure the frets from the center of the groove I cut for the nut, or the edge? the CBG I have finished works and tunes up, but I think the frets are placed incorrectly."
