Jim Frets - How To Build videos

Many of us remember when Jim Frets (Jim Farris) was active in the CBG building community many years ago. He produced a number of very informative how-to build videos.

Jim Frets How To Videos

Jim doesn't build or post anymore, instead he's focusing on playing and performing. His informative videos are still archived, I've collected them here so folks who don't know Jim can learn from his knowledge.

If anyone is still in contact with Jim, tell him the Clubhouse says hello!

Worth another look at one of the pioneers of CBG building.

Jim was one of the early builder's in the CBG revival to bring craftsmanship to building CBGs.  He was a great help to me when I was getting started.... Thanks, Jim!!!!

Hey ted thanks for putting Jim's Vids together these were some of the first vids I ever watched for instruction. His easy way of talking and clear understanding make for great tutorials.
