"Cigar Box Guitar - the Ultimate Collection" is one the first books written specifically for the "4 String" cigar box guitar. 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. The 30 pieces are a compilation of traditional and original tunes primarily but not exclusively in the "Blues" style. The scales, chord charts, arpeggio diagrams, fingerboard charts, riffs and exercises provide an excellent way for the user to master 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.
