"Interesting topic Mr. Callaby.  I am always eager to hear what tunings and ideas other players are trying out. I usually tune GDG, DGD, GDB, EBEB or sometimes random tunings that sound good depending on my mood.  These days I'm often…"

": )  Alan, That mistake is totally forgivable.  'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring' is the one of the only Bach worth listening to. It's ok to think someone with more talent created that song. I grew up listening to classical…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Handled one for the first time in Canada Just a couple of months ago- intuitive, bluesy, lots of fun. Bought two, posted three vids- and have now completed my first build. Sadly, while it looks the business, it sounds like what it is, which a piece of wood, a flimsy candy tin, and a bunch of junk hardware. Hopefully, however, the crass mistakes are now behind me...
