What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
How expressive these instruments can be and how building them and coming up with new ideas is only limited by our imagination. Plus I love open tunings and one string instruments.

Hey there Chris. I'm glad to be the first one to comment on your wall. First of all, I love your channel. Second, you inspired me to build my first uke. I posted a vid here: https://cigarboxnation.com/video/cigar-box-ukulele-build-demo-song

Also, I think I may have competition for the world's most dangerous uke. Ha ha! But seriously, check out this vid: https://cigarboxnation.com/video/ukulele-meets-modular-synth

Keep up the great vids man. I always look forward to them.
