York, PA musician, Shane Speal is responsible for the modern resurgence of the cigar box guitar, a once forgotten instrument of American blues and roots music. Few artists are as committed to expanding the boundaries of such a primitive instrument as Speal does. "A Cigar Box Guitar is quirky and appears ‘broken’ from the start," says Speal. "They just don’t look like they should play any music. I love to see jaws hit the floor when I shove a socket on my finger and wail away." In addition to performing and composing on cigar box guitar, Speal has also opened the first permanent Cigar Box Guitar Museum within the walls of Speal's Tavern in New Alexandria, PA. He also has an ever-expanding lesson series on how to play cigar box guitar, found on Youtube, CigarBoxNation.com, CigarBoxGuitar.com and ShaneSpeal.com. His column, The DIY Musician has been read by thousands at GuitarWorld.com and showcases homemade instruments, players and techniques. Shane Speal & the Snakes latest album, Stay Primal features cigar box guitars, washtub bass, washboard, tin can microphones, and many other DIY instruments.
