Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

That should work pretty well. The ones I've done like that worked out ok but too much head tension will cause the sides of the box to  bow inward. I like to get good tension on the head but here I had to compromise a bit. Looking forward to a CB fiddle/banjo duet!

Cigar Box 5 string Banjo  What's Jeff planning to use for a pot/body? This is a cigar box with half a bongo drum inserted. It'd be cool to have matching fiddle and banjo if you have any other boxes like your fiddle.

Yeah Marcy, I played in  rock bands for a long time before moving to WV but when I heard some local guys playing old time music I felt like that was what I was meant to play. I still get together with some classic rock guys and plug in an electric guitar but this old music that's fairly new to me is where my heart is. My wife and I are talking about some hiking in Smoky Mtn National Park - maybe in the fall - not sure how close that is to you guys but I always bring instruments when we're camping. We may be able to play some tunes sometime soon I hope!.

Hey Marcy, thanks to you there are two old time tunes/songs on the top content part of the page. Usually it's only myself and sometimes one other guy playing this music on cigar box/homemade instruments. Fittingly, they're on fiddle and banjo.Glad that your aboard!
