#1 resource for Cigar Box Guitars, Free Plans, How-To, Parts & More!
So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Enrique Iglesias solo tab for hero. Here are the chords for the song.
Thanks Man, I remember listening to this sound on the radio many, many moons ago. I think Gene Autry sang it.
Hello from Italy!
This is my version of Red River Valley song for 3-strings CBG.
Hope you like it :-)
Dgbd tuning is the same as 5 string banjo, so banjo tab should work as well as banjo chords.
We're building a library of free song tabs for 3-string cigar box guitars over at CigarBoxGuitar.com. The library is currently fairly small but will grow quickly. Check it out!
I know his stuff sure helped me on my path. Sort of a Zen Satori moment after beating my head against the wall. I still have a long way to go, but I'm able to make much more melodic noise now.
Justin Johnson makes the comment on one of his videos not to worry about weather its a minor or 7th chord or whatever, if it calls for a G minor or C 7th or whatever just play a G or C. Simple but it works.
Great! Many thanks.
After pondering some, I realized that I CAN play your "2-0-2" tab with the slide if I don't actually play the bass string. That way I can play both your tabs so far and the "2-0-2" just becomes "X-0-2" because I put the slide against the top string, second fret; play the middle string open; and don't play the bass string.
(Probably nobody cares but me, but I've gotta' have something to keep my mind occupied.)
