Ok after deciding that for some reason trying to play the 3 string cigar box would be easier the the harp, I took the leap. I purchased 2 boxes from the cigar shop at the mall for 2 bucks each and got a 4 foot peace of 1x2 oak FOR 4 BUCKS AT HD.... No I don't make stuff in a wood shop, no I don't play guitar, and no I don't know what I'm doing BUT I have to get sound out of something I make and I figure using a slide will make me sound like I know what I'm doing even if I don't...

So tonight I'm gonna work on the measurements before I cut anything. I'm waiting on the trade for my tuners and strings... and trying to figure something out for the bridge... You know... something no one has ever thought of before.... I know it's stupid but it has to be mine... Anyway after my root canal yesterday I was thinking about some of my wisdom teeth I had pulled and made them give them to me a few years back.... MY Teeth! that would be something wouldn't it...

Right now I'm trying to figure out why everyone attaches their neck to the lid of the box? Wouldn't that stop the vibrations?

Looks like I need a cool nickname as well.... here goes....

BLACK GLASS BELLAIRE

Anyway Gone for now...
