Oops! Thanks for the clarification, Randy. Didn't mean to open up a can of worms so to speak.

Hi Pa I'm here in York. Saw a documentary called It Might Get Loud about 2 weeks ago it featuring the Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White in the first minute Jack strings up a single string thing and play's it. I later found out was a Diddley Bow. Some YouTube research on delta blues and the Cigar Box fever was born in me. First build in process as I type this. I do liken this to an addiction I think Ed from Mercer got it right it becoming a lifestyle.

Hi all, my names Ed and I live in nothwest pa mercer county in stoneboro. been a member here for a few months. Absolutely head over heals for cbg's. I have made 7 so far and even started my own business Bayou Blues Guitars. Have 3 hangin in a guitar shop right now. It's not an addiction, it's a lifestyle !!! Even did a bluegrass festival last weekend as a vendor to get the word out about cbg's. i also build and sell 1 watt 9 volt amps installed in recycled stereo speakers. I'm in the process of building a 4X 10 amp cabinet and installing mic amps with 2 6 inch speakers and hooking up a seperate amp for stomp box all to run on 9 volt batteries. People were blown away at the festival over the sound of my amps and I sold 2 while there. Anyway hope to get to know everyone here and thanks for setting up this page. Peace !!

Hello all,
I'm new here, have played the six string for a couple of years, saw Shane on the news the other day and it changed my world of music. I have always loved the Deep Delta Blues sound, now I have found it. In the process of making my first CBG, can't wait to try her out. By the way, I'm from Hershey area. Thanks for putting together this group.

John

I was actually trying to record a different song and getting frustrated so I took a break and started playing this... ended up recording it instead. 😃
