comment Holding a cigar box guitar
Most standard designs are decidedly neck-heavy. However the whole instrument is very light...I find just the pressure of my wrist ( in pretty much playing position ) to be sufficient.

comment Rosin doesn't work on the bow
With a brand-new bow, you may have to repeat the process several times. Eventually, you'll be able to feel a sticky resistance on the entire length of the "hair".

comment Can I play a regular guitar as a Lap Steel by replacing its strings with steel strings?
Correct. There's a handy device that will assist in this project, a "nut extender": amazon.com/Golden-Gate-F-3303-Extension-Stevens/dp/B0002Z3N8O/… raises the strings about 1/8" and thus prevents whacking the frets with your slide. For playing in the "lap" position, most pickers use a "steel" rather than a bottleneck-type slide. The sort of thing used to play a steel guitar.
