Documentary: Cigar Box Blues - The Makers of a Revolution (2019 BBC)

It's finally here!!!   Cigar Box Blues is a 30 minute documentary first shown on the BBC back in 2019.  I've been anxiously awaiting for this powerful BBC documentary on the UK cigar box guitar scene to be released to the rest of the world.   The film stars iconic cigar box guitar figures including Hollowbelly, Chickenbone John, the Dusk Brothers and was written by Paul Atkinson.  

Without further ado, enjoy:


These Very Special Slide Collections Have Just Been Released

The Trinity (pictured above) is a three slide set featuring the three essential elements for slide guitar: steel, brass and glass.  Each Trinity set includes my Shane Speal King Slide, the Preacher adjustable brass slide and the Traditional Stubby Bottle Slide.  Purchasing these separately would cost over $45, but The Trinity Set is only $33.95 on sale now.  There are 12 in stock.

3 Kings is exactly what it sounds like:  a set of three Shane Speal King Slides plus the Stubby Slide gig case.  This set was created for the gigging cigar box guitarist as well as those who have different practice areas throughout the house.  Again, there's a big savings with the set as The 3 Kings is on sale for just $33.95.

Rare Bones [The Last Bone Digger + Prototypes]:  The Bone Digger Slide has now been discontinued.  (A new ceramic Stubby Slide is currently in development with Rocky Mtn. Slide Co.)  This collector's set features the very last Bone Digger that will be sold along with two rare prototypes.  All three will arrive in a new Stubby Slide gig case.  Only one to be sold.  $99.95.

One more thing:

There are three Shane Speal Macanudo Cigar Box Guitars ready to be shipped.  Get yours now.
