Thanks for the welcome. The website is great! I love all the resources. I've already learned quite a bit without building a thing. The 2x4 lap steel appears easy. I'll have to try it first. - Brent McNabb BME
Thanks for the good luck wishes for this year's festival. Last year was lightly attended as everyone was kept outdoors and spread out in circles on the lawn. We're hoping the added instrument building activities for kids helps bring CBG awareness and appreciation amongst more families.
I wrongly clicked on the editor before writing, not after. As I have macular degeneration and Parkinson's and cannot read normal print and using a mouse is difficult, sometimes impossible, it is rather awkward for me to get about. I am thrilled, however, with what the Cigar Boy Nation produces and organises and can blow up most things on my computer. I copy the tabs, then with aid of a large magnifying glass, into a note book in a far larger size. In this way I get by quite nicely. I am most thankful for the patriotic American songs. Though I am a German citizen, my great-grandfather left for Alabama to help the Confederates in the Irish Brigade and, as he was a farrier, he helped build up the cavalry. My grandma was born and grew up in Alabama., her 'sweet home'. She had to leave for England to marry her cousin as there were few young men still alive in 'Sweet Home Alabama' after the war.

Thankyou for your advice but when I click on HTML Editor the window merely shrinks or grows bigger. I find things, however, by chance such as this column and I have seen wonderful videosw but I have no idea of how the system works and how I can get to where I want to go at once. I would like to show you a picture of my new homemade guitar but though you told me 'This is the way to do it', I did not descover the way.
I am content to fiddle around but would really like some system to follow.
Thank you BrianQ for the invitation. I need a guided tour as I cannot find my way around. I tried to show what I was doing but was only given 140 words. How do I sign in? How do I find postage costs for Germany? At present, I buy Gitty's things from Amazon de.
Thank you for your Kind comments on the Mutant Guitar gif, see where your coming from, it is verry much inspired by art , and all the stuf on the nation is mostly catagorised as folk-art anyway so i dont see the special disticktion, but i will probebly not fall in the catagory anyway's ,after reading the rules again in a nations mail from Gitty it has to bee a mutant between two instruments, and allthow the paint brush is a instrument in a way , its one for painting and not for sound allthow that is produced aswell when rolling the paint but my intensions are from a diverend Nature anyway ! but i see you like it and i thank you for your kind words on the subject ! greeeeetsszz A.D.
