I am new to this but I have a three string, love the tone but I do need to learn to play it.I was never able to play a standard guitar, I used to play blues harp but I am having to relearn that.

Dose anyone instruct in the UK preferably near Birmingham

Hey Nigel.

Welcome to CBN firstly! Being in Birmingham you should look up Chickenbone John. He's all over YouTube, the net and also on here. Perhaps one of the best known cigar box guitar folks in the UK? Definitely where you should consider looking anywho. Best of fortunes with everything.

Bear.

thanks bear i will look him up

Hi Nigel, There are a number of lessons on you tube.  Look for Shane Speal,  Justin Johnson and Mike Snowden to name a few.

Welcome and Regards  Tony 

Hi

I am new here, so hello all

I went on Chickenbone John's workshop in March and can recommend him

(No connection other than a satisfied customer)

He is running another in June I think and its in Birmingham (check his website)

Cheers

Chris

My next workshop is in Bearwood, Sat 11th June. The last workshop was fully booked, and this one is already half full, so book early to avoid disappointment!
