Cigar Box Nation member, Glenn Kaiser has been making music history for decades, first by practically inventing the Christian hard rock genre with the revolutionary The Resurrection Band (a.k.a. Rez Band) and later with his deep blues solo career. Now Kaiser is keeping even older music history alive through homemade instruments.
In his latest video for Grrr Records, Kaiser shows us several of the 'found object' guitars that he has built for himself and talks about the various objects and methods he used to put them together. Then he goes on to build one with step-by-step instructions.
Read Glenn's accompanying blog post here that is mentioned in the video, including his "fine art" sketch of the one-string guitar.
