CBG demo - The River by Bruce Springsteen

This is one of my latest guitar builds. It is an Ashton cigar box with an oak neck and fingerboard, 23 1/2 inch scale length, 4 strings tuned DGBE. Played acoustically.

Super version, Derek!  I'm sure The Boss approve.

Beyond fantastic. Just muted the TV and we're both having a listen. Love this song, love Bruce and love your rendition. It's all love, love, love for this one. Very, very well done, my super-talented friend.

Thanks Uncle! That harness gets in the way for singing though! I like Warren Zevon a whole lot too, so that is very kind of you to say. :)
