    Biscuit tin guitar

    8C42D609-3660-4589-8DF8-52C78680E495.jpg
    Iím back tinkering in the garage. Knocked out a biscuit tin guitar. I canít play it I just thought Iíd see if I could make one. It makes a sound now I need to find someone to tune and evaluate it.

    When all else fails read the instructions

    I had to eat all the biscuits first Alan. It’s a case of suffering for your art.

    Get a app called Fender tune.

    Pick Open G and then pluck and tune GDG. I have a cigar box 3 string and I can't play a thing but it sounds nice.

    I’ll have a look at fender tune Paul thanks. I can’t play a note but I was advised to tune it to GDG which is the intention. I was originally going to make it a cigar box guitar but in the absence of having a suitable box the biscuit tin had to be used.
