A friend told me about this video. Thanks, it is very informative and inspiring. I'm brand new to the world of CBG's.

Uncle John sent me.Great lesson, I've made my first one bout a week ago I think one of the mistakes I made was fretting it (thought it would look cooler) just makes a lot of knocking noise when I try to slide.I have better luck playing it on my lap.

Hi. :) I am sorry for the dumb question, I know nothing about music as this question will tell you. I cannot follow what the strumming pattern is. Is it just down strokes or ups as well? Thx!

Kevin, I just sent a friend to this lesson and listened again myself.  YOU ARE STILL THE MAN.  Best lesson ever.  God bless.  And I agree with Thor.
