Posted on December 25, 2014 at 8:14pm 1 Comment

Hullo all, Eddie Tuleja (native and former resident of New Jersey) and myself recently released an album of 5 original songs all about significant events and places in Tasmania. The album is available for download from most online music retailers. I would be happy if anyone could have a listen to the songs ..even if it is just previewing them...and give me some feedback (sorry no CBGs featured..yet).  If I was clever enough I would have attached one of the…

G'day Peter, Picked up the lingo from a late friend from Oz who had a great pub locally. He introduced me to Bundaberg OP. They don't import the stuff to the USA, but I have a friend who flys United Air Line 747s on the pacific routes and they bring me a bottle back every now and then.

Cheers

G'day Peter, sorry I've taken so long to reply, I'm old and sometimes things slip my mind and fall of the "do list". I have been using these strings from C.B. Gitty on all of my "normal builds"  http://www.cbgitty.com/cigar-box-guitar-parts/12-pack-acoustic-med-3-string-cbg-strings-blues-blaster-low-open-g-gdg/  and like the tone I'm getting out of them.

The two string just uses the upper two from one of the sets, .034" & .026" and is tuned middle D, middle G. I used the .044" string for a diddley bow.

Thanks for the kind words on my builds, I'm sure having a lot of fun with them, I just need to take more time and learn how to play them.

Cheers

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;
