I received an email from CigarBox Nation.... re you were wondering how to join the Canadian Group. I think by the looks of it that you are already a member but if not, you just click on the Canadian group and follow the links. Where are you located? I am in Cape Breton and have been building strumsticks for the past few years but am now switching over to Cigar Box Guitars. So far have built 2 but am planning to build my next one with a shorter scale.
