"A boss dd-6 will give you that and so much more. I have one on my pedal board now. That's on the board instead of my TC electronics Flashback X4. Way easier to use. Get a good Boss used off of ebay. And what's really cool is you can demo a…"

Can anyone recommend a pedal to get  a decent slapback using tube amp and 3 string cigar box guitar? I'm thinking Scotty Moore, Stray Cats through to The Cramps.Loads of demos on YouTube of people using various delay pedals, but also using high end 6 strings with expensive amps.CheersSee More

CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Yeah! Plus coordinating those hammer ons and pull offs with the alternating thumb is kind of a juggling act. Keep at it!

Thanks for the friend request and your kind words about my Mystery Train video. It was an arrangement I came up with on my own for 3 string CBG. There are a few good tutorials on you tube for 6 string but the trick is to figure out how to adapt those to CBG gits. I might have to put this on my list of tutorial requests.
