Open C Tuning for Cigar Box Guitar

"Purty geetar and setting.  Cool tuning and a variation of two I use, DGB and ADF#.    Same fingering on all.   But that open C sounds good!"

I really liked your The Versatility of the "3 String Cigar Box Guitar" video. I'm curious about the nylon string gdg guitar example. Looks like it would fit in a airline carry on bag. Not much info out there on using nylon strings with 3-stringers. What scale length and strings were you using? I know how to figure tensions out with steel strings, but I have no clue with nylon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Del. Just wanted to say I find your videos really inspirational. Just watched your latest YouTube video on your 3 string CBG. You mentioned it's fretted in the E minor scale. Forgive my ignorance please but is that the 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 (for the middle string blue note) & octave? You're inspiring me to try a ruler neck and the same fretting.

Please, please keep up the awesomeness. I'm a fan already!
