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!
