I Saw the Light: Weedwacker & Fishing Line 3-string Cigar Box Guitar

"The guitar sounds really good with those strings, Doug. I remember a few of the guys and ladies from the pacific rim talking about using fishing line for their ukes back when I used to frequent the uke forums in the early days. Great Hank gospel…"

Everly Brothers on home made 12 string guitar

"Thank you, John! I wish I could have seen them live. They were great and also influenced many of my heroes. This 12 is pretty heavy for an acoustic - about the same as my solid body tele, so far I have not put any strap buttons on. It is comfortable…"

I’m not sure why that didn’t happen until today! It’s not like we haven’t been communicating. Uncle John and Kale have already gotten back to me on the 1st CallyFest Zoom Jam idea. I want to hear your thoughts before I move forward.

Derek, For some strange reason you are not on my friends list. I sent this same message to Uncle John and Kale.

Uncle John, Kale, and Derek

I would like to see if you are interested in cohosting with me the 1st CallyFest Zoom Jam for Cigar Box Nation Enthusiasts: An event on the long bare CBN calendar that people could actually show up to and participate in!!!

The three of you each have a solid following on CBN, sing well, and play consistent rhythm: perfect for leading others in a jam! It would give us the opportunity to hang out together with other CBN enthusiasts and connect at a whole new level.

We could use songs from the Slingers 250+ song, GDG, 1-finger songbook. Each of us choose 3 or 4 songs (Sweet Sixteen?) to lead. The Slingers normally do 15-16 songs in 60-75 minutes. I can create a downloadable play along songbook in the order we do the songs just like I do for the Slingers every week. I also have some ideas for some interaction with the participants. I would record the session and could break out the songs to post to CBN and/or the entire jam (I’m sure Kale could do a more creative job post processing the Zoom recording if he wants to).

If you are game for the challenge, please let me know soon.  We need to pick a date and time for the jam and choose the songs. We can also do a brief prejam Zoom, meeting to make sure we have everything figured out on our end.

What do you say guys? 

Doug
