Origin of Delta Blues Classics

Posted on February 3, 2009 at 11:50am 0 Comments

My "Southern Classic" cigar box guitars resulted from a trip I made to the heart of the Delta Blues country - New Orleans. Throughout the French Quarter of New Orleans and all along the gulf coast, the trials, tribulations, and community bonds are woven deeply into the resonating sound of their music. From stories of the Depression, to long lost loves, mystery, and all the emotions that ebb and flow from a lifetime of Southern living, I'd found a style of music that fed into my passion for art… Continue

I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

Hey Jeff,
Thanks for your respected input on the new "box". I'm still new to this thing, but I have to say that the folks like you on this site have been a great source of inspiration to me.

brother jeff,thanks fer da comments.let me tell you what got me started on d-bows. the need to find something to do with smaller cigarboxes.i used to give them away,then i made a few d-bows,problem solved.the way i accumulated small boxes was buying lots on can get some nice big boxes that way but sometimes you gotta get the little ones too.if you have not made any d-bows yet jeff,i strongly suggest you check it out cause there is great potential in the d-bow market too.they cost less to build and take less time but they can look as attractive as your cbg,s with 3 or 4 strings on them. well almost as attractive. the playing of a d-bow is great fun jeff,if i built them just to play them that would be cool by me,but i like building them also. peace to ya brother,thanks to ya later.
