"I see.   Well, that's too bad and I don't like seeing anyone ruled out on picking up some earnings.  It does not affect me (no ads) and I hope it will not in the future.  Generally, changes sucks."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Honestly...they've given me life again. It's hard to explain, but I hit a real low point in life. I was really down...but I rediscovered the blues, and soon after, "roots-music", and from that Cigar Box Guitars. I just found something real...and my life, needed some real stuff in it again. This stuff really means a lot to me. I don't know where I would be with out it.

Howdy, folks! 

I have some interesting news. After chatting with the fine folks who run local annual Comic Book Convention, I've decided to go ahead and rent a table/booth selling my CBG's, handmade old-school instruments, and other blues related stuff.
