Steve Arvey Performing Voodoo Child At The Blue Door In Brunswick Georgia


Recorded at The Blue Door Music Venue In Brunswick Georgia. This Great Sounding Cigar Box Guitar Made By Doug McDowell Of Devils Broomstick Guitars who knocks it out of the park with this incredible new concept in 3 String Cigar Box Guitars.

The neck is Maple, reinforced with a truss rod, padauk fret board and headstock trim. 25” scale The box is a Brickhouse. Pickup is Alnico 5 humbucker. Machine screws are used for both the bridge and the nut. V & T, strap buttons, etc. paua abalone fret markers. My inspiration was learning Neil Young’s Cinnamon Girl and Ohio on a regular guitar, and how powerful D tuning can sound. I was also inspired by Steve Arvey’s Delta Swamp Rat themed 6 string cbg, tuned in DAD 12 string style. So the 2 ideas came together. I detuned my guitar in the basement and messed with various tunings until I found this one. I am sure this is what Neil Young would have done with Gordon Lightfoot’s guitar if left unsupervised for 10 minutes.

This one is in DAD. The first course of strings are D’s an octave apart, using .013” and .028” The second course are A’s an octave apart, using .022” and .042”. The 3rd course are D’s an octave apart, using .028” and .058”.
