 comin' along nicely...

Thanks guys, the playing is coming along slowly, I have played guitar off and on for a few years and have tried slide on a 6 string but never got fully to grips with it. The 3 string CBG just makes me want to pick it up and play so in the month or so since I built my first one (currently on about number 6 or 7) I have probably practiced more than in a long time. It is such fun to play and sounds great at least to my ear lol

Sounds great Dave... Nice video too.

It looks nice Dave, it's great you have good friends so as to have access to a peaceful getaway.

Comment by Dave Perks on September 20, 2012 at 5:45am

Hi Maddog, no, unfortunately it is not our own place else we would be up there every single weekend I think! Our good friends loaned it to us for a long weekend, makes such an amazing getaway only a couple of hours drive from town.

Nice job Dave! I like the video also. Are those pics of your Cabin? I've got a little 2 room cabin along the banks of the Missouri River so this is right up my alley. The pics of the woodpiles are just a stark reminder that old man winter is on his way, that's alright though as I'll just hole up in the cabin next to the woodburner and build a few more CBG's.
