How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Internet.
How many instruments have you built so far?
(Original posting watch me "evolve") Zero, I'm more of a "buyer", I own 10 CBG type instruments so far, seven 3 strings, one 4 string, and two diddley bows. But, I'm not afraid to screw on some box corners, strap buttons, or solder a jack if I have to. (Update as of 10/17) I just finished build #16, I ended up buying a few more and then I started building them myself.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Well, there's the tone and the look for starters. As a player, I like that the instrument is accessible and relatively easy to get started on, although it is in no way easier to master than any other instrument. As a lifelong bass player, I like the fact that the string spacing of a three string CBG is very similar to what I'm used to, which makes it possible for me to play with my fingers instead of with a pick. And....most meaningful of all. My daughter, who has been constantly surrounded by music and musician's,and has had full access to a recording studio full of a wide variety of musical instruments, for 14 plus years and counting, saw my first CBG, grabbed it, and is now learning an instrument for the first time. I had to get her one of her own so I could get mine back. That's pretty "meaningful" to me.
