What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The opportunity to learn to play a guitar. I was born with just a thumb and two small (below the first knuckle) stubs on the left hand and a thumb and first 2 fingers on the right hand. I saw there is a possibility to play with 1 finger and figured I have twice as many needed. I built the pure and simple 3 string from CB Gitty and signed up with Patrick Curley learncigarboxguitar and now on my way to learning cigar box guitar
