In this episode I go through some of my favourite book and DVD resources. Some of my best ones are by Charles Atchison, Mike Orr, David Sutton and William Jehle and Justin Johnson. I have also filmed this episode as a live Facebook feed so don't hesitate to check out my profile at Adam Harrison from Birdwood Guitars. Find me at THE CIGAR BOX GUITAR BUILDER PODCAST group. I have some more great interviews on the line for the next few weeks as well so stay tuned.

Today I got to interview a really great bloke, Glenn Watt. Glenn was one of the first people who I found on Youtube building CBGs. I found him to be a very humble guy who was very open and giving. I couldnt believe that an hour and seventeen munites could go so fast and we still had so much that we wanted to talk about. Thanks to all our new and old listeners. I really appreciate your support of the podcast and I promise to bring you more interesting interviews. I am in talks with a few at the moment. Remember that this is one of the only CBG or roots instrument related podcasts being made and it's thanks to you.

Things have been pretty crazy over this way so I've had to focus on the full time job. Now that the hard work has been done it will be back to our regular scheduled programming. I just wanted to give some thanks to some of the people who have helped along the way. Stay tuned as there are some cracker interviews being booked in with some more of the big guns of the CBG world. Thanks to you guys.

Shayne Soall is undeniably one of Australia's trailblazers when it comes to cigar box guitar building. But it's the fact that he has successfully been running a thriving CBG shop for the last 6 years and building a loyal following both here and overseas that is so inspiring. Shayne Soall is also asking for your CBGs. If you are interested in having Shayne stock your CBG give him a call on 0419 409 963. A great bloke and loads of fun.

Ok, this is me basically having a great time with a group of incredible people. Listening to great rock n blues and jamming on CBGs.
I begin by having a little 'rant' about people who are giving Facebook users who advertise or post their business or builds a hard time. I understand their point of view but respectfully disagree as I truely believe that if used sensibly, social media can be an awesome way to spread the word of cbgs around the world. Let's face it, it's the future of advertising, like it or not.
The middle section is a selection of 3 songs from the night. The first is one of my favourite songs ever and the last two are a jam with Matt Charnley and Rob Chapple who are both playing CBGs
Finally I bring it back with a word about new players.

In this episode Mark and I chat to a CBG legend, the amazing Nigel McTrustry from McTrustry CBGs. Nigel has been building and performing with CBGs since about 2009 and has built a fantastic reputation. Check out his new single 'Yellow Dog' at the end of the podcast. Enjoy, Adam.
