Grab your cigar box guitar and get picking, with this treasure trove of tablature arrangements of 41 beloved American songs!

This songbook includes 6 pages of "how-to-play" information, making it easier than ever to start playing songs on your 3-string Open G GDG cigar box guitar.  This 60-page song book was designed and printed at C. B. Gitty, with all tablature arranged by Ben "Gitty" Baker from amongst some of his favorite American songs. The songs in this book range from Patriotic pieces to classic folk and old-timey songs, western tunes and even some early blues - a sampling of distinctly American songs. Basic arrangements of each song are presented for picking and strumming. We also include the chord names (and chord forms) with each song for strumming along, as well as the song's lyrics, additional verses, and more! 

The goal of this songbook isn't just to present a bunch of music theory or stark, drab tablature... Ben Gitty designed this to give you all of the information you need to either pick or strum along with well known songs... as well as the how-to instructions you need to be able to make full use of the book. There are no dry, dull exercises, scales or rote memorization in this book... just the simplest, quickest and easiest info you need to get busy making music.

Here is a sample of the tablature:
