Cigar Box Guitars

The Classic Cigar Box Guitar

Three strings in an open tuning is THE easiest way to make a full sound with minimum effort. One finger pressed across all three strings makes a movable "power" chord which when moved up and down the fretboard means you can play along with any song with just one finger or a slide. There's no hidden complexities it's that simple. One finger. 

Of course there's more fun to be had, tracing out melodies while open strings act as drones or working out how to voice more complex chords soon open up the instruments full potential. It can be as complex as you want it to be but the beauty is in its simple beginnings. 

If you're looking for something to help you lose a few hours here and there in drawing out snaking, trance-inducing country blues figures or you're a big fan or repetitive beats three is the magic number!
