CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Remember...

Tabs here is as a learning tool -- NOT for profit.

I'll also upload some blank tab sheets. Just let me know what you think and if I need to add anything.

Hi Richard. To the right of the screen just a little ways down there's a "How to play cigar box guitar" link if that helps? Other than that I know there's lots of videos on YouTube by Shane Speal, Justin Johnson, not forgetting the awesome one-finger lessons by the equally awesome Glenn Watt. I think there's a sister site to here called cigarboxguitar.com where there's a lot of tab? I could be wrong about that though, which is highly likely. Other than that I'm afraid I can't help with how to find them on this group page. Hope that lot helps a bit though.

Does anyone have a 3 or4string tab for "Once their was a time" this a 10 Years After tune that seems to be made for CBGs? I'm trying to work it out...not satisfied yet. Great lyrics and a Rockin rhythm.

Hi All,

I love Smokestack lightnin main riff and I wanted to play it in CBG.

so I got this tab (6 strings standard tuning) from Ultimate guitar

"Smokestack Lightning chord Howlin Wolf (1956) Open E (high E string), G (high E string, 3rd fret), A (3rd string, 2nd fret) slide to B (third string, 4th fret, B (third string, 4th fret), A (3rd string, 2nd fret), Open G (3rd string), E (4th string, 2nd fret)"

For the rhythm guitar, chords: Em G Em G

and tried to transpose to G key for 3 strings. I got this notes:

G - A# - C - Slide D - C - A# - G

Well...I made this sometimes before and I got it but this time It doesnt sound good to me.

What am I doing wrong? Could anyone help me?

I also think that we are about 500 member in this group... if...let's say 40 % of people would make "just one" Tuxguitar or Guitarpro tablature (song or riff) we'll end with two hundred tabs for practise. NOT FOR PROFIT.

If I ever get the smokestack lightnin right for CBG I will hang it here for all members to check what I want to mean.

I made this 12 bar test (GDG) and It's very easy to work with.

test.tg

Thanks a lot! and as Keni use to say ...Enjoy your practise!
