Welcome to the addiction Bill. Questions aren't a nuisance, they are a part of what we all do here. There's a lot of instruction from building to playing on this site. I think you'll like it here.

Enjoy !!

BRAND New to this whole cigar-box guitar, 1,2,3,4 string(s) guitar.

Been fascinated by these instruments for several years but just haven't had the time to give it a try.  That's fixing to change.  In fact, just bought 4 boxes today from the local Goodwill to experiment on.  If I'm pestering ya'll too much with questions, just let me know.

I'm stoked!

OH, and I don't play--yet.!

hi Shane, hello all. Thank you for the invite. Daniel here, self inflicted flea market and ebay guitar, amp, and bizarre instrument builder. I'll be back tomorrow, old to meet y'all. Not sure what to say, give me a hint. Glad to be here.
