William J Jehle, detritomusicologist and cigar box guitar historian, has collected more fragments of these forgotten instruments to create the first written history dedicated to these humble instruments. Mr. Jehle's fascination with cigar box guitars led to a wide-ranging search for any and all artifacts to learn more about these instruments, and this research has yielded a wealth of information that you now hold in your hands. Now in its second edition, spanning over 150 years of artifacts, this book is an updated collection of the history of the cigar box guitar, its origins and its changes in value and perception from the mid-1800s to the present. Mr. Jehle assembles the disparate parts, snippets, one-line mentions, newspaper and magazine articles into a cohesive whole, and, deciding to share his discovery, shares this information with others, so that ultimately guitar players and makers of all skill levels may grow through their own experience of producing sounds with their fingers on strings, working with their hands on the instruments they play. May you enjoy learning more about these instruments, and may your own experience be enriched by this book.

Play Jazz & Blues on the Cigar Box Guitar Learning to play jazz and blues on the cigar box guitar is simultaneously easy and difficult. Easy because you only have 3 or 4 strings to worry about so fewer options than a standard 6 string guitar. Difficult because getting good full-sounding chords with 3 or 4 strings in GDG or GDGB tuning often requires bigger stretches for chords or large skips up and down the neck to play all the notes. The new two-book series "Jazz & Blues Unlimited" provides an excellent resource on both 3 and 4 string cigar box guitars covering most topics required to successfully play jazz and blues. Book one covers riffs, scales, and improvising, while book two covers more chords, fingerstyle, and chord progressions.
