Boxes For All Reasons

Cigar Box Ukulele

Posted on: July 15, 2011

I’m not sure I’ve ever heard or seen a cigar box ukulele.   In researching this post, though, I came across many “how to” videos as well as mention of people like Lightnin’ Hopkins who got their start playing cigar box instruments.  This clip shows a cigar box ukulele being used to play a Tom Petty song, “For All The Wrong Reasons.”

Hi, there is a ton of information on the home of the cigar box revolution: http://www.cigarboxnation.com

I am currently building 5 cigar box ukuleles and have made them in all sizes.
I also have some videos of my son playing the cigar box ukulele and guitar at http://www.youtube.com/user/thecigarguitar
enjoy!

Thanks so much for the information. I had no idea cigar box instruments are such a vital subset of instruments as a whole. I checked out the first video of your son. Wow! He’s great, and the instrument is beautiful!
