Dimension - Wolfmother - Cigar Box Guitar Cover

"Cool! Now let's hear Cosmic Egg or Phoenix - two of my fave Wolfmother songs. Love this band - but only the first two CD's. The drummer on Cosmic Egg was awesome (I use to play drums). I think the Cosmic Egg CD was their best effort."

100 Traffic Years

"I was born in the early 1960's, but there's a part of me that wishes we could beam America back to the 1950's. Young folks have no clue how nice this country was back then. Good job, Richard. Sounds very early 1960-ish!"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
CBG's are small and affordable! I was a hard rock drummer for most of my life, until I tore the labrum in my right shoulder. After abandoning music for almost 20 years now, at 53 I have decided it's time to take up music again...this time on a CBG.

Hey, I see that you'e in Martinsburg, WV. I live near Romney WV and play pretty often in the Winchester/Martinsburg area. I give lessons pretty cheap and the first lesson is always free in case you're interested. If not, myself and plenty of others here on CBN are always willing to help.
