This workshop is designed especially for students who are familiar with the 6-String Guitar and want to learn how to translate that knowledge to the 4-String Cigar Box Guitar (CBG). Students will learn how to tune the Cigar Box Guitar in open and standard tunings and will learn how to incorporate the CBG into their pre-existing playing style using simple chord diagrams and musical examples. By exploring Roots Blues, Traditional Folk & Bluegrass as well as Pop songs, students will learn how to play the 4-String Cigar Box Guitar, employing several different tunings, strumming techniques, ﬁnger-picking, and even slide guitar! Each student will be provided with chord charts, tuning suggestions, tablature, and descriptions of the tips & tricks that will have them playing
Cigar Box Guitar in no time.
*Students must have some basic 6-sring guitar experience to take this course.
*Acoustic-Electric 4-String Cigar Box Guitars will be provided for students provided they register 24 hours before the class begins. Also, these can be purchased
