These things are addicitive...

Hello fellow CBG builders,

After 20 years of messing with different guitars (always wanted to play rock and roll, and blues) and still not being able to play a recognizable song I traded one electric and one acoustic for a nice Ibanez acoustic-electric and started learning chords and making up my own melodies. Then I started watching YouTube for blues ideas and discovered Cigar Box Guitars. Ordered a kit from Red Dog and built my first. I'm just finished up my 11th build. I keep learning and getting help from my new friends here. Thanks! I still cant play worth a darn, but sometimes it gets close. I've also switched to a regular pickups instead of a piezo on numbers 3 through 9. Just finished my first try at a dulcimer, it turned out very nice and liked the new challenge. I used a new piezo setup on the dulcimer and the fretless reso. Number 12, almost done is a Reso with an Old Lowe brass cone. Thanks to all of you that have helped me with the questions I have as I learn here...

It's quite a compliment coming from some one who has built so many great builds.

I especially like the resonators. Great cover plates.

Thanks,

Fred

Thanks

Hi Terry, Dulcimers are great fun. Everything I know about them I learned from Dulciworld group here: http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/dulciworld
A few posts down on this page Diane leas me to the fret question you ask. As far as tuning I found out most tab songs are done in DAD if you plan on using tab that would be your tuning. There is also a conversation that is worth reading about strings on the dulciworld group. Good luck and enjoy.
