Korrigan commented on Kevin Patrick's blog post Label removal
"Getting a paper label off a paper covered box is tricky. Definitely don't use oil based solvents or wd-40. Try a heat gun or a clothes iron to soften the glue and carefully pull it off. If there's glue residue left you can try taking it…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The thought that I can make music out of junk I have laying around really amazes me. I have also attended the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel festival in Clarksdale, MS the last few years and have seen many homemade guitars and Diddley Bows.

Kevin, can you take a shift as designated bus driver?  Hey, I made a nice little tinjo out of one of the tins from you.  Photos posted.  Maybe a video later.

Going to Cal in your mind?  You can ride the Iowa bus with me.

Too many thanks to you too John. Thanks for the tour, boxes, your insight and the other goodies.  Hope to stop again soon.

Mornin' Kevin. Glad to be your CBN friend, thanks. Just happened to be on the site this AM. I got a couple of support posts on my back porch that might become D-bows come Spring.  Sorry, but I will have to tell my girl you were one one who inspired me - she won't go as far from us as Iowa to hunt you down for  a whoopin' though... ;)

Kevin, I like your take on the canjos with the aluminum beer bottles.  Hey, did you realize that I am in Harlan?  How is your playing going?
