Cigar Box Guitar Music - Old Time 1880's to 1930's Bottleneck & Slide guitar

 These 2 albums are all old time blues music played on cigar box guitar. NO singing, NO band, NO regular guitars. These recordings are only authentic Delta Blues and slide cigar box guitar.

All of this music was recorded with only 3 and 4 string cigar box guitars. NO regular guitars. In these recordings, I wanted to record authentic Blues and Bottleneck slide cigar box guitar as realistic as possible. My goal with this music was to take the listener back to the 1880's and up to 1930's.  I also recorded some Electric 1950's bottleneck slide to recreate and relive those long lost sounds. 

 Here are the links to the downloads below, also you can hear the song demos. Have a listen to the samples below. If you would be interested in dowloading these albums, they are 14 dollars and you can check them out thru PayPal and listen to them right away on any digital device, computer or cell phone, they are Mp3

The easiest way to learn to play old time blues is to listen to old time blues. Listening is learning.
