Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

Hi Mike, even though i'm in CBN, i have yet to use a cigar box for my builds. I started making my own boxes right off. I have used some great old jewelry and packing boxes. I started making my own to start to learn and making curved boxes was beyond me. I like the square and i think they work great. I like making my own because i can use good luthier wood. I use Martin factory reject spruce for tops and Walnut and cherry for sides and some pretty maple or burl wood for the bottom. I never have used a jig, i just start with the bottom clamped to a very flat board and build my way up. It works good. .... Dacve

Hi All,

I've been busy making cigar box guitars in Barrie Canada.  I wanted to connect with others doing the same.

My building is pretty well over for the year now ( Nov 27 as I post this ). I am working in the garage without heat. We have about 8" of snow in the last week, so it is a little cold to be doing things.

I look forward to taking with many of you. I put up some pics so you can see what I have been up to.

Dave
