3 String fretless Cigar Box Guitar played along to a 12 bar Blues backing track

Come and join us at the Cigar Box Nation Recording Studio!!
Join in with something that's already going on, or start something new.
On this one I played along to a 12 bar Blues backing track that Mark had put on.
It would be great if others could add some tracks, maybe some bass and a beat, then we could take the backing track away! (It's too smooth and perfect for my liking!)
Go here to download the backing track and see how to do it.
The video shows the set up when I recorded my track...then there's a little tour showing a few rooms in my house and how Cigar Box Guitars, amps and other music related stuff are taking over!!
Thanks to Mark Bliss for breathing new life into the CB Nation Recording Studio group!!!

cheers Crimson Toad and Steve...yeah I've never really thought of it as a recording studio as it all evolved in a pretty random and chaotic way, but I suppose it is!

other John, thanks..yeah there is loads of stuff sparking up now on the recording group. Come and check it out!

Comment by bemuzic on February 11, 2012 at 1:47pm

yeah I wish we could all get round the stove and play!!..but John, this whole recording group is not about what's "good"  I want this one to have the backing track taken away and get it sounding more home made and rough. Think about it.... I think you'd fit on it just fine. If not I'm looking forward to our duet anyway : -)
