Cigar Box Guitar

September 6, 2009

As some of you may know, I have been playing guitar for close to 10 years and love music. I was browsing the internet the other day and found this video from the people over at Wired magazine. In the video, they explain how to build a cigar box guitar. I’m sure most of you have a cigar box (or ten) lying around, so why not give this a shot? I know I will try to make one as soon as I have some down time, and will let you guys know how it goes. Enjoy!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

    Cigar Box Guitars are a growing music and DIY movement. The epicenter is Cigar Box Nation, started by Shane Speal, the King of the Cigar Box Guitar. CB Nation is a great community of people building and playing these incredible, historic instruments. You’ll find lots of photos, videos, forums, specialized groups and even live chat.

    Each member has a page they can customize to show off their creations and offer their expertise. Here’s mine http://cigarboxnation.com/profile/tedcrocker.
