What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm a long time multi-instrumentalist and home recording enthusianst. I’ve played in several local bands. From the first time I saw Justin Johnson and Shane Speal play a CBG, I knew I had to have one and better yet... build one. I'm into experimental sounds and I think a CBG, while great for traditional front porch music, is also good for experimental stuff. Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAQM-TzxIQI
