The Best Jugs in Kentucky Are Empty

Posted on September 18, 2019 at 6:00am 3 Comments

Since I’ve been involved with the homemade musical instrument community, I’ve noticed more and more coincidences in my life. I’m not sure if they’re happening more often or if I’m just more attune to them, but I’ve noticed increased synchronicity…

The Accidental Canjo

This is one of those stories that you just can’t make up. It happened yesterday afternoon and I felt the need to share it with all of you. I was sitting at the computer watching some videos on Cigar Box Nation when my dogs started scratching at…

Posted on August 27, 2019 at 2:00pm 3 Comments

This past weekend, I made a trek to York, PA and attended the 10th Annual Pennsylvania Cigar Box Guitar Festival. It was a heck of a good time and I drew a ton of inspiration from the folks in attendance. In fact, as…

A Tale of Two Ukes

The truth be told, I’ve never been a big fan of ukuleles. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve always appreciated the sound, but I never gravitated towards this particular instrument. Needless to say, ukuleles are popular with CBG builders because…

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…

Thanks Poorness! Your builds, your music. your words and your contributions to CBN and the Gitty Gang Show are inspiring. Ever do any James Taylor covers on CBG? With your style and talent I think that would be cigarbox awesome....nudgenudge... ; )

Thanks for the friend request, Poorness! I like what you build!

@ Poorness

Thanks. I think my ideas come from thinking outside the box, because I've never been IN the box.

I'm planning other builds, but have no idea  what I'm going to do with them all.

K, I was very happy to see you in York!
Glad you made the trip! On boatmans dance the sound like marbles is actually spoons! Idk seemed appropriate for it.

I'm one of those transplants who escaped from Southern California but Texas is in my blood now.  Thanks for the friend request.

Thanks for the friend request! York was a lot of fun this year.

Thanks for the friendship. Always glad to accept and I hope you're doing well. My apologies for taking time to accept but I haven't been on as much of late. Hopefully that will change soon. Thanks again and all the best to you.

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
