What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I have been playing the guitar for years but it never took. Then about 5 months ago I discovered cigar box guitars. Total game changer! To say it has changed my life would not be too strong a statement.

I love the stripped down raw tonality that, for me has laid bare the beating heart and creaking bones of the Blues.

Here is a living embodiment of authentic homegrown Americana! I want to spread the word. I want to light a fire and watch it rage and ignite the hearts and soul's of a new generation of aspiring musicians!

Cool Paul. I like Shane’s demos. He’s reping my slides. He may start offering these illustrated slides as well. The ones he’s selling now are undecorated Stubbs at 1 1/2 inch. He likes the Stubbs for 3 string sliding. ... Dave
