Thank's for watching the vid, and for your kind comment! I originally sent it in for the "Pet Sounds" contest in the Washington Post last year. It wasn't selected, so I radically re-mixed the song and posted it here. ROCK ON!!!

Thank you for your comment about my video. I am very fortunate to have musical friends. They are both very inspiring. I especially like the split open tuning CBG idea. I have to explore more of this in the Fall with Bill. Enjoy.

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
