I got interested in cigar box guitars that a lot of people are building, not because I want to build one, but because I really get into the history of different instruments.
From what I can find, and what I am told, this feller is the originator of the cigar box guitar.
I’ll let the website link tell you more about it.
One thing I should say, way back when I was just a foal, my family had a ‘Family Band.’ Even though almost all of us could play store bought musical instruments, the rule was the music you made in the band had to come from your own lungs or be played with an instrument you had personally constructed.
Only two ‘Real’ musical instruments were allowed, one was our old hand me down 1880’s upright piano and the other was an Autoharp from the 1930’s.
What fun we had, we even made a few dollars at the Moose lodge where my parents were members. I think the money was actually to help mom put us all in a home, but, we thought we did good!
Anyway, after all that foreplay…. here is the link
