CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The creativity of each box. Initially I thought I would just be using my woodworking and guitar repair skills and just be making the same thing over again, but that isn't the case. It is great to have to plan and decide what kind of look I want the guitar to have. And, they are too much fun to play!!!!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@yahoo.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Stella.
