Learning to play jazz and blues on the cigar box guitar is simultaneously easy and difficult. Easy because you only have 3 or 4 strings to worry about so far fewer options than a standard 6 string guitar. Difficult because getting good full-sounding chords with 3 or 4 strings in GDG or GDGB tuning often requires bigger stretches for chords or large skips up and down the neck to play all the notes. The good news is that with consistent practice, it is possible to overcome any difficulties and play jazz and blues on the cigar box guitar with satisfying results! 

I have tried to cram in as much material as possible in this two-book series that cover most topics required to play jazz and blues.  Book one covers riffs, scales, and improvising, while book two covers more chords, fingerstyle, and chord progressions.
