Welcome! 🎸

Hi my name is Charlie, I'm an academic in training and professional musician living in Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K.. I'm undertaking a Music Degree, part time, at Newcastle University, and work full time as a private music teacher and performer. I am also an apprentice luthier at Cigarbox Sounds. I post private builds and blog entry's, talking about my dissertation, of which will be about Cigar Box Guitars. If you get a second, I would really appreciate it if you could check out my blog and photo albums, all feedback would be amazingly helpful and I would be tremendously grateful!

Peace, love and Cigar Box Guitars!

Hey, Charlie.  I like your name and your Olivia build.  It's good to have you for a CBN friend.   How is your playing doing?   Page top, resources, how to play,  knotlenny's CBG 101 helped me the most.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
As an ethnomusicologist, I find the Cigarbox Guitar's, and other Cigarbox Instruments (Fiddles, Banjo's, etc.), rich history and development from simple instruments used to perform early blues &/ Spiritulas to the current Cigarbox Revolution fasanting. I also love how building these instruments opens up the world of Luthering to novice craftsmen, like myself. 🎸🎻
