4 string Celtic tunings

Started this discussion. Last reply by Penny Nelson Mar 30, 2013. 13 Replies

I've been playing a round with tunings a bit. Personally I prefer modal tunings to triad tunings, so I usually tune a 4 string to GDGD. That tuning has a lot of possibilities, and for someone like me…Continue

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?

I'm so glad I found the CBG revolution! Just stumbled across one on Youtube and that was it. Had to have one, and seemed silly to buy something when the whole point is you can make it yourself.
I'm a pro musician (keys and sax - I'm the worst guitarist ever) and I've toured a lot in Australia and overseas with major label acts. Spent 6 years on the tour bus through the USA with Little River Band. Have done some jingle and soundtrack stuff. Building CBGs is a passion now and I've sold a few, mostly to justify the expense of tools and stuff but also so I don't end up with 20 guitars in my living room.
This site and the community here has been very helpful and I've met some great peeps so twang you all very much.

slide and frets compromise?

Posted on March 27, 2010 at 1:32pm 2 Comments

Hi. I'm new to this so please forgive the stoopid question. My first build is pretty cool BUT tends to play sharp when I am fretting a string. I don't want to bring the action down too far cos then it will be too low for slide. What's a good compromise. Any actual measurements of string height at nut and bridge? Thanks guys!

I made a few beginners videos and posted them on my page here, one of them is how to fret, or at least the way I do it anyway.
