Liner Notes: 

I posted a cigar box blues piece ( here ) and received some requests to do more. I had a short instrumental and shamelessly copied and pasted it to double the length but added a piano and bass guitar part to assuage my conscience. This is a standard cigar box tuning of G D G.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.


One of my friends built a cigar box guitar, but his was acoustic. I didn't even think of the possibility of playing slide on an electric. That was a bit of a mind blow. Thank you!

My lucky day - two new awesome cigar box guitar blues tunes. I love the organic feel to this one as if it has a mind of its own as if it flowed spontaneously. Feels like a great story being told.

A lot of soul in that groove. My electric cigar box guitar should sound so good!

The sound is just so cool, with so much personality. Makes me wanna write a gritty blues lyric.
