Cigar Box Guitar - Build and Play Workshop
Sat, May 27, 2017, 10:30 AM – 5:00 PM BST
Build your own 3 string cigar box guitar at our one day workshop.
Our workshops are a fun way to build your own Cigar Box Guitar. You need no woodworking skills - if you can draw and cut in a straight (ish) line then you can build your guitar. We are there to help you over the tricky bits and and rescue you from any mistakes that you may make. We supply all the parts (genuine Havana cigar box, hardwood guitar neck, D'Addario guitar strings - everything you need) and all the tools - we even supply lunch (most of our workshops run in pubs) and good company comes as standard.
I just want to emphasise that this workshop is definitely not just for the men! There are are some great female cigar box guitar players and this workshop is just as great for women as it is for men.
Normally we have smallish groups of 10 -12 people which gives us plenty of opportunity for individual support.
At the end of the day we string your new instrument, tune them up and spend some time with an introduction on how to play slide cigar box guitar.
