'Opening the Door' Handpan & CBG Ceramic Body Guitar Music

Headphones or stereo speakers are recommended for best sound. I think you guys will enjoy this (I hope). It aint the blues! The song begins on handpan, then I drop in slide guitar about 1 minute in playing the 2 string ceramic seed pod 'chugger' guitar I built with one of my handmade stoneware slides. The guitar has a rod piezo, and I'm using an outboard piezo preamp that I built into a cigar box to shape tone.
I recorded this song for the Healing Handpan Alliance. It will be available for free download 11/20/17 along with many other handpan songs from www.healinghandpan.com if you want a free copy of the music.





PS. C.B. Gitty started carrying my stoneware ceramic slides last week!

I really appreciate your nice comments James & Dave. I'm thinking of building a new 4 string ceramic guitar. I was so exhausted after the first ceramic 4 string build that I needed a break to just focus on using cigar boxes. :) I filmed the video in my back yard. My husband built the bridge earlier this year after a downed tree took out our old one. I managed to catch some nice weather one afternoon last week to get outside.
