Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

Hi Matty --

I've been lurking these forums for a while now and am impressed by your cigfiddles. I've been building and repairing electric guitars and basses for almost 6 years and just recently got into cigar box instruments (currently working on a cigar box mandolin and have built one 3-string guitar in the past). I had a couple of questions about your cigfiddles, if you don't mind me asking: First, do they have a truss rod? I know a lot of CBGs don't as the string tension is usually lower than a conventional acoustic guitar, but your necks aren't just an oak 1x2 so I couldn't help but wonder. Secondly, what kind of scale do you use for your cigfiddles?

Thanks!

-- Trevor

Matty, I left you a voice mail yesterday to 1) Offer congrats! and 2) to give you a heads up that you have a bad picture link on the Baratto Cigfiddles page on your site.  

BTW, you got a mention in yesterday's Esquire Magazine article What You Need to Know About the Historic Paul McCartney-Nirvana Show.

Also the L.A. Times, which links to the page with the missing pic.

Also mentioned in In the NewsThe Cavan Project & more.

A shame about that missing photo...
