"It's a wooden Montecristo, pretty good nick. The woman I spoke to was somewhat taciturn, so I can imagine they''d be pretty unhelpful. There's a whisky place on West Nile street that are much nicer - I've been told…"

Should get it finished tonight with a bit of luck, so I'll put some photies up.

Hi Tam here.
What area of Glasgow do you live, I grew up in the Shettleston, lived in Arden and Easterhouse for a couple of years, been in Kilbirnie for 20 years.
I work in Springburn at the Royal Mail centre. Strike comming up.
I get my piezo disks and jack plug sockets in Maplins in St Enochs sq.
Do you know of any other CBG players in Glasgow?.

Dont worry mate, it wont be long before cbgs take over your life lol
Birmingham, 3rd October - its the 1st of what will be an annual UK cigar box fest. ChickenBone John and Hollowbelly gig on the night, workshops / demos / buy an sell etc during the day - theres a poster on the main page or have a look in the 'Events' section. Should be a good craic.
Thanks for the comment on ma stomp box too - i put a note on the vid, but incase you dont get there, how about using 2 rubber feet off an amp (get 'em on ebay) to make your box slope? The rubber stops it slipping too. I found that even with a sloped box, it still ran away the more ya tapped it. As a side note, it helps to fill the void with something too - I used foam
Good luck
