Hello! new member here and i have not posted yet so i think it's time! Sadly not for a good reason.
I have just finished my first Cigar box guitar and strung it up. When tuned to GDG i get a buzz on the thickest string when not fretted and it goes away when i fret. I have squeezed the box in a few spots to see if that would help but no luck. I have pushed down on the nut and the bridge but no luck there either but it sound like it's coming from the nut or bridge.
I have a video of how it sounds attached.
It really bugs me that i can't get a clean note as i have to learn how to play too!
I hope someone of you kind people can help me with this because i'm eager to start to play!
Yes im really glad i sorted it out and i completly agree with you on that! There's no point in asking for help and not come back with the result!
Okey i'll definitely keep that in mind when i make a new nut, thanks for the tip! Yeah i kinda messed up on that.. But the paper did the job ;)
And Tom, I definitely will enjoy the music!
