KIND OF MUSICAL: THE SQUARE CIGAR BOX GUITAR WITH ITS OWN PHOENIX

THE SQUARE COMMUNITY

It’s kind of musical around here. I have my guitar, ukulele, two penny whistles, a small xylophone and a tiny electric piano. I had a very different idea of what to do with today’s pictures, but the lights were out for hours.

A square musical treat!

If the wind had calmed down, we’d have had a little more time to write. Sadly, we also got a very small amount of rain … just another dribble.

    • The carving is gorgeous and it can make some really interesting music. It’s just that I don’t know how to use it and the book I bought with it uses some kind of notation that isn’t standard music notation, so I’m at loss to know what to do with it. But the carving is something else.

    • It really is. I’m just totally lost trying to make music on it. I think it’s more an accompanying instrument than a solo player. I think I need a few lessons maybe. But that Phoenix is amazing.

      • It certainly is. I took piano lessons but never was very good. I have my great grandma’s pump organ. I wish I could play it.Good exercise though.

        • The pump organ is NOT an easy instrument. I played piano pretty well and for many years and I had a lot of trouble with the organ. I was not used to working on multiple keyboards OR using my feet as well as both hands. And the non-electric ones are even more difficult. I had one here for some years and never quite got the hang of it.
