Happy Halloween!  Here's my song,  "Mother Leeds" mashed together with scenes from the classic European horror movie, Haxen.  The song is from my album, 12 Stones  (Purchase download here.)

Cigar box guitar & tuning:  3-string fretted with internal Dobro cone.  Tuned EEB (low to high.  middle E is one octave higher than low.  Strings used E,D & B strings from a standard pack)

The song tells the legend of the Jersey Devil, a winged devil-creature born of Mother Leeds back in the 1700s.  

Here's a live version that shows some close-ups of my playing.
