I've been suffering from a SLOW Internet connection for several days, now, but it seems to be useable for the moment. Getting back on the Nation tonight has again reinforced my appreciation the Nation and all its members. There is such a huge wealth of information and talent here it really is incomprehensible. The courtesy, etiquette, and camaraderie, are all second to none. The way newbies are treated, the tolerance of non-cigar box instruments and their owners is remarkable and commendable.(And appreciated.) Seems like this place is full of people with open hands and open minds. This is a rare resource. The sum total of all the knowledge here is a formidable thing to see.

Shane and Ben have given a real gift to the world. A big gift.

Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute to express my deep, heartfelt gratitude for this site and its members.

Thank you all.

Yes, I agree, very nice to see so many ideas shared and so much eagerness to help out. If only that would spill out into the rest of the world.

Well said.  

As one of the aforementioned noobs, this place is a wealth of information and the generosity in which it is shared is very much appreciated.

Amen, Brother Mike.  This is a rare place where kindness given seems to come back around to the giver.  And we can have some gentle BS and teasing too.  

We all have a little bit of devil in us and thank God for that!  (hope to use that in a song, Mike.)

LOL. Thank you Clockwork.  I had an incident last Sunday with kazoos myself.  Bought a 6-pack of them at the dollar store and none of the 6 worked. (Or I forgot how to play the kazoo...)  Wonder if we could take a cigar tube and make one?  Might be a project. See Ya!

   Awoooh!  Awoooh!  Master let me paw the like button!

   Seriously,  though,  this site does have a radically different tone than most.

   ( Although I HAVE detected a faint anti-kazoo bias... )

Anyone with experience in 1-3-1 tuning?

Most seem to tune their CBG to 1-5-1 (for example GDG, EBE, DAD). As I have understood this tuning…See More
