CBG Tabs

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.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I saw Justin playing. And then I went down the rabbit hole. I want to learn to play guitar and I am really hoping that learning a 3 string will be easier than 6! Because I tried 6 (a couple of times) and I get too intimidated. I am also a wood worker and I love the creativity outlet portion of CBG's. I've started building one (0.25 of it is done), which should be interesting, since I don't know how to play one. I also already purchased a CB Gitty fretless slider. I look forward to being a part of CBG Nation! Thank you!

CB Diddley Bow #2 - Complete

Posted on August 6, 2020 at 10:22pm 2 Comments

Had to make a 2nd one so my wife and I can try to learn to play these thangs, together!   I wanted to give this one a caribbean look with the coloring (even though the cigar box is from Holland). 25" scale with blues fret markers. Not sure if I'm "right" by doing that - I have watched 8,239 videos (give or take 8,100) so it is very possible I got my wires crossed on that.  The bridge is temporary, until I come up with something creative.…

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( jamespollard.it@yahoo.com ) for the full details.Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
