I just build my 1st cigar box guitar. A 3 string slide electric...What 3 string should I used?..I now have G B E on it..
Many players including myself tune (low to high) GDG and use the ADG strings of a standard set. This kind of open tuning makes playing easy and allows to transfer the concept of a 6-string guitar to the 3 strings of a cigar box.
It's a personal choice, on a 3 string I use DGB, but have tried others
like ADG depends on what sound your looking for and how ur tuning.
You will get many opinions on this subject, I say Experiment ...
So it basic what type of sound you are looking for...Does any 1 used the high E string?...I have plan on making a 4 string guitar too...Is there rule of thumb on this?...Or just Exeriment and most important have fun with it lol
