Stumbled upon a cigar box guitar video last week, and was instantly intrigued. I immediately set out to and build my own. Never played slide before, and am learning. Fortunately, as far as sound goes, (in my playing), thuds have quickly turned to pings, and almost discernible notes.Here is my first build. It…See More
