How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The opportunity to learn to play a guitar. I was born with just a thumb and two small (below the first knuckle) stubs on the left hand and a thumb and first 2 fingers on the right hand. I saw there is a possibility to play with 1 finger and figured I have twice as many needed. I built the pure and simple 3 string from CB Gitty and signed up with Patrick Curley learncigarboxguitar and now on my way to learning cigar box guitar
