about

Sweet Requiems On A Summer Night is an all instrumental record for 3 & 4 string cigar box guitar. The first seven songs are requiems to members of my family, which were composed exclusively on cigar box guitar. The remaining five songs were written on a resonator and acoustic guitar then adapted for the 3 string cigar box guitar.

The 3 string CBG is a unique instrument in its own right. The strings are further apart, which enable you to slide adjacent strings easier. Using the bottom strings of the guitar, these cigar box guitars give you an illusion of a deeper instrument. Since there are only 3 strings, as opposed to 6, there are less overtones and a more crisp sound.

This recording is close to my heart and I hope you enjoy it as well.
