THIS IS CIGAR BOX NATION WRAPPED UP INTO ONE VIDEO!!!

Nathan J. Roberts, Hal Robertson, Skeleton Key and Rob "Hillbilly" Ingram got together to make a cigar box guitar music video, featuring Nathan's original song "My CBG".

Roberts says of the video:

What happens when a Pentecostal preacher, a hillbilly, a construction worker, and a photographer/videographer get together with homemade guitars? The answer is, homemade music.

I moved to Joplin, MO and discovered Cigar Box Guitars. Wow, they've changed my life and introduced me to some new and different folks. People I would have never met had it not been for a stick through a box. I wrote this little tune after reading an article from Ben Baker of C.B. Gitty.

These guys in the video, Hal Robertson, Rob Ingram, and Skeleton Key, are all from Joplin, MO and they build Cigar Box Guitars. All guitars in this video are built by these 3 guys in Joplin, MO.

Hi, I like that a lot. Good quality sound and presentation. Possibly one of the best I've heard in a while.

Cheers Taff

Great job guys!

Sounds great, I liked it ;-)

 I LOVED THE VIDEO. I LIVE IN GRANBY MO AND I AM JUST GETTING INTO THE CGB MOVEMENT. I AM PUTTING THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON MY 3 STRING BUILD. I WISH I HAD A FULL WORKSHOP TO MAKE MINE LOOK BETTER

Hey my CBG Brothers....I'm from Joplin but transplanted down near Memphis. I'd like to meet up with y'all when come back home to visit and have a glass of tea and talk CBG's! How do I get hold of one (or more) of you?

Blessings,

Chuck
