I am a beginning builder of Cigar box guitars(cgbís)and also a beginning guitar player( I built one and this stimulated me to learn to play itÖthen I built another in a different tuning,I know how to play about four songs,one,I made up and know how to play but it isnít technically written because Iím still learning to read and write music ,Iíve never been a musician until I built my cgb ,I will have to seek instructional assistance.I m now restoring a mandolin ,so Iím headed down another trail pushed by circumstances I donít and canít control!Mandolin help is what brought me to these shores of Mandolincafe!and any is appreciated!
