How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
went to C.B.Gitty website
How many instruments have you built so far?
0 , but I have 3 boxes and a wooden mask that will be in the "collection" soon
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Well to start I bought a banjo a couple years ago and have not been able to find a teacher and it's a difficult instrument to learn .I was online and ran across a video of a guy playing a diddly bow and he was kicking ass on a one stringer and I was like , Hey, I can start out with one string and work my way up ! Here's maybe a little interesting note for ya'll. I live in the little town that Bo Diddly is from and I know his family. I'll send a photo of his Tomb stone if it's possible on this site. It's big and kinda cool looking. Have a great day and hope I'm accepted , either way I'm building one and am going to start my jam. Later
