"I may be wrong but I  don't think anybody breaks down tunings into which octave the strings are. At least I haven't seen any videos that do. "

Lessons that use a GDG Tuning with High G?

Hey, everyone,I'm just getting started with three-string open G tuning. I set my instrument (not a cigar box guitar, planning a build soon -- right now I'm experimenting with a garage sale student size guitar) up with Low G, Low D, High G ... but going through Shane Speal's video lessons, so far I am seeing Middle instead of High G on all the videos.Of course, the lessons are still valuable, but obviously the sound is different. Anyone know of any online lessons/song videos that use the High G…See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm a long-time guitar player, but not especially good. I'm interested in slide ... and after messing with a traditional lap steel it occurred to me that 1, 2, or 3 strings would make things a LOT easier to handle for a butterfingers like me. Also, I just love that diddly-bow sound.
