Finding Xanadu in Memphis

Posted on April 13, 2019 at 6:00pm 5 Comments

When I first started learning about CBGs, I discovered John Lowe, a luthier and performer in Memphis, Tennessee. He does a one-man show under the moniker Johnny Lowebow and builds string instruments known as Lowebows. I had read he owns a…

My New Alexandria CBG Adventure

Posted on November 12, 2018 at 7:30pm 3 Comments

Ever since I learned about the Cigar Box Guitar Museum (inside of Speal’s Tavern) in New Alexandria, Pennsylvania, I’ve wanted to visit and see this unique collection of instruments. Last month, I haphazardly noticed…

My Foray Into the World of CBGs

Posted on October 13, 2018 at 10:30am 3 Comments

I started my musical exploration on bass back in my late teens. A buddy of mine was learning guitar and needed someone to play bass for him. "It's so easy," he said, "there's only 4 strings and all you do is play one note." Well, needless to say,…

Oh, now I read your background (above) and you made it from Texas to the St. Louis fest.  Cool.  I went down there for a club meeting.  Nice folks, great venue, some good builders and performers.

You are making some cool gits and interesting videos.  I like that Best Friend's Girl and guitar.  You nailed it pretty well.  It's good to have you for a CBN friend.

Its pretty much a social network here.  The best way to enjoy it is to comment kindly on others posts, develop relationships and friendships.  Generally too, the etiquette is to post just one video a day so as not to push someone else off the video page. 

How long have you been at this?  You sure play well.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I'm a long time multi-instrumentalist and home recording enthusianst. I’ve played in several local bands. From the first time I saw Justin Johnson and Shane Speal play a CBG, I knew I had to have one and better yet... build one. I'm into experimental sounds and I think a CBG, while great for traditional front porch music, is also good for experimental stuff. Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAQM-TzxIQI
