Have you been over to Cigar Box Nation's Facebook page? This week, we had a full-on "Piezo Day" with videos and how-tos. There were follow ups to the Pennsylvania and Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Fests (photos and videos), featured instruments of the day and more.
Here's just a passing glimpse of what you've missed. Make sure to "like" the Cigar Box Nation page. It's the internet's only daily homemade instrument magazine!
GUITAR/DRUM FREAK PATENT! John Sebastian of the Lovin' Spoonful discovered this patent and mailed it to Shane Speal several years ago. It shows a rectangle guitar that has a drum-type head as the soundboard. A drum foot pedal is connected to the guitar to add thump to the strum.
Sebastian added the note, "Where is it now that we NEED it?"
In the Facebook discussion, several builders were intrigued and started talking about actually building this contraption.
