I know that cigar boxes mean that generally, anyone with one is going to play 'the blues'. But everyone just ends up turning out the same thing to a better or worse degree. I'm not knocking people who want to learn and play and get enjoyment out of music, but, these instruments are much more capable and far more adaptable to so much more than the same three chord turnaround.
I know im a grumpy git, just wanted to get that off my chest.
So, Ive played a few more gigs with the cigar box and the 'hilarious' comments still get wheeled out. ' Where did you get that ?, Is it real ? ' Then you play it and the clowns with the big voices shut up...ah well, goes with the territory.
If your in the Studley area on the 15th of this month, check out the Royal Oak pub. We are having a Cigar Box evening, including Chickenbone and a ' special guest '.
