Elders Of The Railway - Photo Essay With Cigar Box Soundtrack

Black and white photos of retired railway cars and engines. 3 string fretless Cigar box guitar Soundtrack.
A link to a Video for the Railroad/CBG Buffs out there in CBN Land, I've probably mentioned Busker 909, previously, but he's a prolific poster of easy 3 String Cigar Box Songs and Riff Lessons, with Tabs, definitely my Fave go to man on Utube, and well worth a look for anyone who is unaware of him. :-)

"Thanks A.D.", BUT!, I can't take the credit for playing this one, Utubes Busker 909, the guy who put this Video up does the playing on a 3 String CBG, in response to a request by someone for the Tabs, his reply was - It's easier than it sounds! I'm tuned D,A,d. The melody is on the 1rst string 0-2-4. Then 0-2-5. I let the strings all ring. The change up is 0-2-7. Chord 777. next time 0-2-5-2. Thanks so much for asking!  :-)

I thought you'd like this one 'UJ', had you in mind from the first time I seen it, Busker 909 is well worth a look at, he does a lot of Short No Chat Riffs etc., and longer lessons, with a fair mixture of styles, Blues Rock & Pop etc.

And WOW, 75 trains per day, that's a lot of Choo Chooing, I grew up in a Railroad Town, about 2 Kilometres as the crow flies from the Station, so thankfully noise wasn't a problem. :-)

Loving this.  Excelelent,.  Wiill take a look at the Busker 909.   

I live 3 short blocks -maybe 200 meters from a busy railroad line.  About 75 trains per 24 hours.   Mostly not much bother and not many waits at the crossing.  Lots of coal trains heading east from Wyoming.  Coal for power plants.  Lots of products from China heading east.   Those coal and China products train cars return back west EMPTY.   

Some of the engineers are horn artists.  Hear one about 5:30 this AM that was pretty darned good to hear.
