Cigar Box Nation TV (06/07/16) - A. J. Gaither, 4-string Tunings, Cigar Box Tambourine

A. J. Gaither and Ben Gitty do some jamming on their 4-string cigar box guitars, and talk about the two different tenor tunings they are using. A. J. also tells his story from this past weekend, when he was hauled to the hospital from a music festival, and Ben shows off a cigar box tambourine (plans available on www.CigarBoxGuitar.com). Originally broadcast live on Facebook on June 7, 2016.

Really enjoyed that one and the info on the four string tunings was very helpful too. Might have to buy or make a four string now. Def very tempting now I know I could use standard finger patterns and ignore the two strings I wouldn't have. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Good show.  I like A. J. and will experiment with the Arkansas tuning.  Thanks, Ben.
