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.
