The Mountain by Steve Earle on 3 string Cigar Box Guitar

Hey Wayfinder, I don't think there's a main area for all the mp3s. They're on individuals pages under "music" and  on the CBN main page beside the photos also under "music" Some of them are from folks' vids but others are music with no vids that I'm aware of.

Too nice Jim, such a relaxing melody. Super performance.

Thanks White Raven. The only thing close to a trick is that a friend of mine tore apart a 100 year old piano and asked if I wanted the spruce soundboard. I rarely say no to free wood so I took it and planed it down to 1/8" and that's what the top is made from. I think the age of the wood plus the fact that it had vibrated with piano notes for a long time made this an unusually resonant guitar.

Wow Wayfinder! It's too late for me to do the math but that's a bunch of CB music and you're not even counting the mp3 additions. It is a wonderful resource and I for one have learned a lot from the vids that others have posted.
