i wake up in the morning to the sounds of a japanese phone made in korea, my coffee is made by a german machine made in korea that makes better coffee than me? i drive a japahese car made in a far off land (tyneside), my 5 string banjo was made in eastern europe... when i play my 3 string guitar i know where it came from, i know intimately every part of its person because i built this instument. it is local to me, an extension of myself, part of me...mine :0)

Hi Steve, 

It's good to have you back -whether for a pop in visit or more steadily.   I am fine.  Still building some.   Still making videos.   I have moved into big box tenors for a lot of my playing and I am getting more chances to play locally.   A lot of the CBG folks and roots music folks have moved to Facebook - or do both FB and CBN.

John

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

I have some tuned to DF#ad and some GDgb, but the D tuning sounds the best on the fours. On the 3's I like DAd to get the spooky blues sound. The boxes are small so the lightest strings seem to work the best

Hello Steve,

It's this Friday night I'm going to the Barge so it aint me who's triggered his memory...Chicken Bone's playin so the guy may have heard this in a sober moment and remembered  wanting a Dogfinger 3-stringer...if I see him there I'll mention it.

Kev.

What a classic! I still don't know how I could miss that. Trust me on that one "eternal blue" is still one of my all time favourites. I guess I have to tell some of my stuck-in-the-eighties friends. Good to see you still have a taste in music.

Hi Steve, thanks for the note. I've got an awful lot from your picture and your description - dowel through the sides, I would never have thought of that either. And cheers for the comments, Tarantino indeed! I'm dining out on that one.
