“Cigar Box Guitar – the Ultimate Collection – 4 String” is one the first books ever written specifically for the “4 String” cigar box guitar tuned to Open G, GDGB. Brent has approached this book with the beginner in mind but has also incorporated many intermediate and advanced pieces to appeal to players of all levels.
This book covers all of the key bases you need to get a firm understanding of how to play your 4-string CBG, including a nice selection of songs & tunes, chord forms, blues scales, major and minor scales, picking exercises, blues riffs and more.
The 30 songs included in the book are a compilation of traditional and original tunes, ranging from blues to Americana, traditional folk and even a couple of classical pieces. The scales, chord charts, arpeggio diagrams, fingerboard charts, riffs and exercises provide an excellent way for the user to learn the instrument, and to fully appreciate the potential of the cigar box guitar. The “How to Read Tab” and “Tips on How to Play Slide” will help those new to the instrument.
