"Yep, been there. Tore down three early builds just this last weekend- parts and firewood now, though one of the necks may be salvageable. I now have nine machine heads I didn't know I had!"

"How ironic I just tore apart one I hated last night. put all the salvageable parts in the parts box. I used the nut, tail and peizo on my current build. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses."

The Build I Hate

Well it happened.. I have a build I can't stand..  thought about this for 2 years, I finally took the time to build it and BAM.. I can't stand it..

ThoughtsWhat is it?         A     2 Cigar Box,    3 pick up,   2 out put and   yes fret able, neck is a Big Lou 2 inch wide nut.…See More

Week 1

Posted on July 21, 2009 at 1:34pm 2 Comments

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...

Hey,

I live here in Webster, NY and am looking for an alternative guitar player to join in a duo project.  I thought I would reach out to some of my fellow local CBN members to see if you, or someone you know, has any interest in a project like this..

 

If you are at all interested, there is a much better explanation of this project online at www.sweettmusic.webs.com

 

Peace,

Tracy

Put out a call.  where should we meet?

At 2:46pm on June 12, 2012, Steve Eckel said…

Sounds like a plan.  Think a gathering would be fun.  I do more building than playing but am always looking for a reason to jam.

Dewey ave is a great place for boxes.  I will have a tent at the Maplewood Rose Fest.  Hope to see you there.

Thank you Hip Bone for your kind comment. Oddly enough, I have a large #10 tomato can that I place down when I busk on the NYC subway platforms, but just now I finished working on a smaller peach can to attach to my guitar headstock. I am using a spring clamp to attach it to the guitar, and some bailing wire (19 gauge, gonna make a Diddley Bow soon too) to attach the can to the clamp. I printed out a card that reads, TIPS. Just got to mount it to the can using some heavy duty clear tape. Weird you should mention this right now. See ya soon, Keni Lee

Thank you Hip Bone for your interest and question.

Wes is coordinating the seminar.

I am sure it will be well annouced at the Festival. I printed out the lesson, so everyone will have a copy. Considering we will be working on Playing the Blues, it might turn into a jam session too! See ya soon, Keni Lee

Thank you Hip Bone. Yes, it definitely make sense to me. I appreciate your personally sharing. I guess "performance" art by it's nature has to be geared toward other's appreciation. Especially magic (fool the audience). What you choose to present it up to you. I like everyone else ping - pong. A kind of hate - love relationship with my music. This is normal and healthy. You don't want to suppress emotions or get imprisoned by them. I think goals are important to keep us focused. When you lose sight of what is your ambition, it gets rather difficult to stay the course. I like what you said. I can relate. Art is definitely all about the "Big Picture". Like Life. Nothing is permanent. Constantly changing. How do you respond? Enjoy.
