The Star Spangled Banner – 3-string Open G GDG – Cigar Box Guitar Tablature

This tablature was created by Glenn Watt.

All of the ciOpen G GDG Listing Imagegar box guitar tablature here on is presented by The Southbound String Company, the only strings specifically chosen and voiced for cigar box guitars. Be sure to check out our line of Open G GDG cigar box guitar string sets here!

This tablature is meant for playing on a 3-string cigar box guitar (or other instrument) tuned to GDG (though any open chord 1-5-1 tuning like DAD or EBE would work as well). The first version presents just the melody line from the song, and the second version shows you how to add some chords as well. The first version is well suited for an unfretted (slide) instrument, but to hit the chords shown in the second version a fretted instrument would be needed.
