Hi Ross. Yeh Barry said he knew you. It would be great to get together sometime. I'm just learning (must be part of my midlife crisis) but I've put together a couple of tunes in open D and G using a bottleneck slide....lots of fun. Talk to you soon, Mark

Welcome aboard, Ross! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).

Most of all, have fun!

Ross - that's great and you're welcome. I love to hear feedback like this, makes it all worthwhile. I know what a lot of fun it has brought to me and it's great to know I've somehow helped others.
