Just joining from upstate New York

Postby Ken McGivern » Mon Sep 15, 2014 8:41 am

Hello everyone,
I found this forum last night while searching for some information on Irish Bouzouki's and after a few minutes I knew I had to join. I started out making native American style flutes and quickly branched out into some other forms. I have always had a fascination with stringed instruments, but never really learned how to play. I started making CBG's in an effort to cut my teeth and while I did learn some skills in making them, I still do not play well. Fortunately for me, my son is a naturally gifted musician and plays just about any instrument, so I can at least hear my creations being played. I look forward to learning and sharing here!

Thanks,
Ken

Welcome to the MIMForum, Ken. What is a "CBG"? We usually like to spell out things like that because many people here don't understand such abbreviations.
