In this instructional broadcast, Ben and Glenn will get right down to the foundations of playing 3-string Cigar Box Guitars, talking about Chords. What they are, how to play them, how to read chord forms and diagrams, and more. Tune in at Noon (U. S. Eastern Time) and join in with your questions and comments. Or just play along!
Shane Speal continues his Diddley Bow lesson series by showing the riffs from his song, 16 Miles to Saltsburg. Originally played on a 2×4 diddley bow, Speal uses a one string cigar box guitar for this video lesson.
Shane Speal approaches the diddley bow with a very instinctual approach. He’s all about using his ears to find the notes. In this lesson, he shows the importance of the Magic Note on his one-string cigar box guitar.
