Recording Some New Cigar Box Guitar Music

 

Back in the studio working on some new cigar box guitar music. Recorded with Martin Kearns at Down In Deep, located in Atlanta, GA. Marty and I go way back... we played so many shows together back in the day. It was a good time recording at his studio. Marty has a great ear and his studio just feels like home. Can't wait to get it all together for everyone to hear. My 6th album will be released later in 2017. I will keep everyone posted on the release date! Rock on!

Cigar Box Guitar Amplifier

I get a lot of people asking whats a good Cigar Box Guitar Amplifier. There are a million different amps out there! If you listen to any of the sound samples on my web page  or you have seen some of my YouTubes... I use this little Line 6 Micro Spider. Cool little amp for just over $130. It can be plugged into the wall or six C battery-powered.You can practice with headphones if you want. It got a built in tuner and several cool effects. Its small and portable. I got mine at Guitar Center, just about any music store...
