Cigar Box & Homemade 3 string guitars








  
This page has old time Delta Blues music played on cigar box guitar as Download albums. 
These albums were recorded in honor of the cigar box guitar. In these recordings, I wanted to record authentic Delta Blues and Bottleneck slide cigar box guitar as realistic as possible and with all of the tracks are ONLY recorded with cigar box guitars. 
  My goal with these 2 albums was to take the listener back to the 1880's to 1930's and relive those sounds lost of history that these cigar box guitars helped create. There is NO SINGING or band and NO regular guitars. 
This music is only recorded with Cigar Box Guitars.

Check out this antique 3 string guitar in the above. If you look closely you can see that the third tuner comes strait up from the back of the headstock. How cool is that!
It must have also been used for slide and Blues guitar because if you look at the neck it is marked with guitar spacing so the player would know where to stop the slide.
I would love to have heard this cigar box guitar being played. It is from the 1930's. I bet it sounded great!



The guitar below is an early example of a 1900's homemade cigar box guitar. This instrument must have taken the maker quite some time and effort to build. The neck is hand carved with a primitive tool of some type. This was a serious labor of love! 

Someone put a lot of effort into building the guitar.
