"Thank you BrianQ for the invitation. I need a guided tour as I cannot find my way around. I tried to show what I was doing but was only given 140 words. How do I sign in? How do I find postage costs for Germany? At present, I buy Gitty's things…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
It is simpler to play for an old man with a young man's feel for rhythm. I have just bought Gitty's hymnal and it is full of good things. I must buy vol. 2.

George, no guided tour needed,  just scroll around and click, it’s that easy, don’t be intimidated by how busy the layout of the page is, I know there’s lots to look and can be a bit confusing? You may want to take the issue of shipping rates up with support at cbgitty directly, there’s a link at the very top of the page to the site? Here’s how to post pictures, and don’t forget to click on HTML Editor before you click the Post/Comment button?
