What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I am drawn to the roots of music and expression, I feel that cbgs and homemade instruments can help connect us to the pure essence of the musical experience. As a muti-medium artist I have found music to be the most intimidating medium I have ever undertaken, after struggling with extreme anxiety about learning to play any instrument, I found my voice and my song through cbgs, "nobody can tell you that you're playing it wrong, when you made it yourself."
