A mailing from the Blues CD Store alerted me to Nathan James & the Rhythm Scratchers and the Washtar Gitboard:

I like it!

But shouldn't he have been playing with thimbles?

I understand ( but not on the Youtube clip I linked to) that he normally plays with metal fingerpicks & strums the 'board with those.

Great stuff.   Reminds me of Super Chikan's creations.

Personally speaking, as an authentic Lowebow player, all these folks playing various "standard geetar necks" bolted onto gas cans, washboards, cigarboxes or whatever ain't requiring any additional skills to play...

Now a Lowebow or diddly bow is a different story...

Yes, the title of this thread is misleading. The instrument shown in the video appears to be essentially just a neck and a magnetic pickup bolted onto something which itself doesn't make much sound. The instrument should really be called an electric guitar.

If it were played acoustically, with a distinctive sound made by the washboard, then it would be a washboard guitar, and possibly a good thing to play along with a washtub bass.

Thanks, Tony... That was my point... If all these supposed cigar box players are anything but electric guitar players then let them play something that doesn't have a guitar neck...
