Hullo all, I have been playing a 3 string that was completed a few months ago, sounds nice but for performance needs amplification, and that is ok. I am really happy with it. Tho, now I wonder if I could build another in the line of a resonator guitar and play it without an amp. If anyone has any advice to throw my way I'd appreciate it. Ta in advance

"No such thing as playing diddly badly far as I know. In our CBG workshop, I'm pleased anybody's willing to thump a rhythm long enough I can play the harmonica. A little collaboration goes a long way."

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Through searching the web for info on cbg's
What instruments are you building or playing?
I have built a single stringed fretless cigar box guitar, maybe it is also called a diddly bow. I play a few other instruments, all fairly poorly though, flute being one of the least worse.
