Do You Play Many Gigs With Your Cigar Box Guitars?
Yes! I make sure to play at least a couple of songs on my CBG every gig I play, most of the time the entire gig is the CBG. I play a couple of gigs a week, often I'm asked to perform at benefits for a quick two or three song set in which case I'll use my Ashton Speedster or Charlie Patton fretted CBG because I can play all my songs on those guitars. Some songs require 6 strings so I might play my 6 string CBG.
As of 2012 I have a live blues band which includes harmonica, bass, keyboards and drums and I play several CBG's in the band: a hum bucker 3 string, a single coil 4 string and sometimes my license plate 4 string cog.
I also busk a lot with my CBG in downtown Little Rock or at the Helena Blues Fest (King Biscuit), Mother's Best Blues Fest, Summerset Festival, Deep Blues Festival (Minneapolis), etc. I also play coffee houses, clubs, bars and parties with my CBG's.
