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.

'Ukulele in a Cup', 23inch Scale Tin Ukulele by Charlie 'Silverspoon'

"Looks good Charlie. 23" scale puts it sort of into tenor guitar territory but if you call it a uke then a uke it is!"

"Charlie Looks good. I am a builder and not a player; it looks like you have used standard guitar strings? I am just about to string a 17 in scale Ukulele/ Guitar made for a computer hard drive, but unsure what strings/tuning to use. I was thinking…"

1 Fretless 3 String (DGD) CBG
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. 🎸🎻
