What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Hi my name is Mella and Im a Cigar Box Guitar Addict! I adore cigar box guitar for the simplicity, rawness and individuality of each hand made gem! I love when I play them to a crowd and watch their amazement at how much sound a little box can make. I learn more and more every day...

Hi Mella, I liked your photos and youtube videos of you and the band.   It's good to have you as a CBN friend.  Maybe you will load some videos here?  What works best is to click 'share' below the video on youtube.  Click 'embed'  Copy the embed code.  Go to CBN/videos/ Add/ choose the youtube videos option and paste the embed code there.  Load it up.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@yahoo.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Stella.
