How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
surfing the 'Net for the blues
How many instruments have you built so far?
Not nearly as many as some. But more than some others.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The simplicity, the freedom to find the music without worrying so much about the form... and if you've seen some of my builds, you know that I clearly struggle with "form". Sigh.
