There is always a way to play music no matter where I am at as long as there is a smoke shop, lumber yard, and some creativity flowing through me.

Do sound holes on an electrified cigar box guitar really make a difference in how it sounds, or is it just for looks?

Does anybody know of any Cbc festivals in IL? Need to get together with like minded people.

Create with no excuses.

I honor those who can build fancy instruments.I give more encouragement to others like myself who create a instrument and work hard to make it sound good with the limited materials they have. Then pass it on to others. The gift of music lasts a lifetime.

Even though I have been building these instruments for a while, I still get excited every time I plug one in for the first time and here it come alive.

Going on a cruise leaving from New Orleans this weekend. Going to be playing with some great musicians. This year I am going to be doing a lot on my Cigar Box Guitar. Last year no one had anything like it. We are raising money for kids to reach their musical dreams.what better to do it with than a Cigar Box Guitar.
