Now bear in mind I'm no musician but... feels good to coax some pleasing sounds out my first instrument.

Ah, ok. Well let me tell ya Eric, if I can fake it so can you. Just learn the 12-bar blues progression and  you're off.

That wasn't me playing in the clip.. A local rock guitarist fancied having a go, he'd heard of three string guitars but never seen one in the flesh or played one before.. I'm more of a builder than a player, I just like making stuff.. One of these days I'll make a video of how I go about it which is really quite different from just about everyone else..

Ha, on the mistakes.  Good cover.  Most of us are our own worst critics.  

Comment by Korrigan on December 7, 2017 at 3:10pm

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the kind words. The problem is that when I go back and listen to what I played, what I am hearing with my ears doesn't match what I'm hearing in my head and every mistake is like fingernails in a chalkboard. I have discovered though that when I make a mistake once it sounds really bad, but if I repeat it a time or two in the same phrase it sounds like I meant to do it. Lol

It does sound sweet.  I pronounce you a musician.  No further excuses allowed.
