How do you learn to play Merle Haggard’s Mama Tried on a 3-string cigar box guitar and 2-string bass? With the clear, concise, and totally-free-to-download tablature in this post!
Mama Tried is a sorrowful story of the heartache a young man can cause his mother, inspired by Haggard’s own several stints in jail. In fact, it was while serving a sentence in San Quentin State Prison that Haggard saw Johnny Cash perform. That event helped set Haggard on his way to becoming a country music pioneer and legend.
A few days ago we shared an awesome video of UK-based Ben “Uke” Rouse playing Led Zeppelin’s classic song “Kashmir” on a 3-string cigar box guitar. Well after a huge hue and outcry, Ben has worked out tablature for his arrangement, so that now you can try your hand at it too!
Ben has been a professional ukulele player and mandolinist in the UK for years, and only recently (VERY recently – he first picked up a CBG only a couple of days before creating the Kashmir video). You can find out more about Ben here on his FaceBook page.
We’re very happy to feature this here on CigarBoxGuitar.com, and hope to be presenting more of Ben’s tab arrangements soon.
After a brief hiatus to attend the NAMM show out in California last week, we’re back at it creating great new content and adding it to the knowledgebase here on CigarBoxGuitar.com. Here is a round-up of the latest additions:
- New Cigar Box Ukulele How-to-Play video lesson from One-hand Dan Russell
- New Tablature for 3-string Cigar Box Guitars: This Land is Your Land by Woodie Guthrie
- New Tablature for 3-string Cigar Box Guitars (arranged by Glenn Watt): Red River Valley
- Easy Chord Forms for Ukulele (especially Cigar Box Ukulele)
- Special addition to the Cigar Box Guitar History section: a video interview with jazz legend George Benson about how he and his father built his first electric guitar out of spare parts.
While it may be a bit early to start publicly performing Christmas songs, you should start practicing now so that when the season is truly upon us, you’ll be ready!
