VIDEO LESSON: RL Burnside's "Poor Black Mattie" on 3-string Cigar Box Guitar

VIEWER REQUEST!

Tune your three string cigar box guitar to G7 (GDF), grab a stubby slide...and take that stick outta yer butt!

G7 tuning is easy to set up.  Start with your normal Open G (GDG) and drop the high string one step down to F.  It's a fun tuning for jazz, or as you see in this video, for North Mississippi Hill Country blues!

Strings & tuner from the video at http://cbgitty.com
