"Pretty simple, but rather than a lengthy explanation, go here ---> String replacement Ignore the parts that don't pertain to a CBG, but for the most part, this is one of the best tutorials in my opinion."

"Well, that's a pretty open question. Some guys who play professionally will replace acoustic strings weekly. I'm not one of them. If you play a lot, then the strings are likely to get dirty (finger grunge in the windings) and that will…"

"Some change them frequently, some not till they break, blackish means time to change them, usually they won't hold tune as well either, and you're right, humidity plays a big factor as well. To give your strings good life, get a tack cloth…"

How do I know when to put new strings on my CBG?

Hey all,Only been playing since last May. My CBG came with a new set of strings on it. I have an extra set just in case. It should be noted that I play every single day, and have gotten alot of mileage so far out of this first set of strings. My question is: how do I know when it's time to change strings? LOL, I say this as a former drummer who ONLY put a new head on a drum if, and when, I put a hole in it...which was rare. So what about strings??? I have noticed that certain areas of the…See More

Some These Days

"Awesome and authentic as usual. Uncle John, you need to do "Silver and Gold" as a Christmas song for CBN. You have the perfect voice for a Burl Ives impression. Seriously! You could do an awesome rendition of that song."

Kiss - I Was Made For Lovin' You, Cover by Jerome Graille

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
CBG's are small and affordable! I was a hard rock drummer for most of my life, until I tore the labrum in my right shoulder. After abandoning music for almost 20 years now, at 53 I have decided it's time to take up music again...this time on a CBG.

Hey, I see that you'e in Martinsburg, WV. I live near Romney WV and play pretty often in the Winchester/Martinsburg area. I give lessons pretty cheap and the first lesson is always free in case you're interested. If not, myself and plenty of others here on CBN are always willing to help.
