Cigar Box SITAR Lesson feat. a cool DIY slide that you have in your home

Let's get trippy!

This is probably gonna go down as one of my best slide videos ever... because it's so easy and cool!  Shane's DIY Sitar Slide Secret was just released on Youtube today and I can't wait for you to see it.  

I've been receiving your requests for more lessons and I'm prepping them for future release.  Subjects include: 

  • What do you do different when playing slide or fretted cigar box guitar?
  • Revisiting blues basics, now with split screens to show picking hand.  
  • Various cover tunes requested by you.

In case you missed it, I also dropped other videos this week, "Trashy" features a full live Snake Oil Band bootleg video of "Personal Jesus" featuring Ronn Benway on Washboard:
