Extremely well done Andries!! Wow all those different sounds felt like I was riding the rails...My dad had all kinds of stories of hobos his dad was a conductor on the train in the 20's and 30's.. my dad would sneak on the train when he was 9 ride it to Highwood Mi. He always got in trouble big time for it to..he was quite the story teller this made me think of all those Hobo stories lol ...Meowwww^..^

Thanks #AGP,  Bones Reilly, Richard, well the symbols allway's intriged me, i know from the old days my mother worned me for the guy who comes on your door to sharpen your nives & sizzers, they (at the time) tended to leave markings on your doorpost or gate or fence if you are a oke person if you pay good or if your the opposite of all that, and they work in a similar way , it seems to bee the code of the Road (good titelgot to remember that) and is used all over the world in simular ways, and if you reconize them you now what they mean ,road to highway,leave town, good hiking that sort a thing. Hippies & hikers know that kind of lingo to, im told !

That is a most interesting style of playing!  You do it complete justice. A.D., you have another winner here, for current originality, bring back whats always worked! Thick paper does an amazing percussion effect!

Thanks John, Erasmo, Stormin, George,  & Milt thank you kindly Gents for the nice remarks on the video & tune, i tryed this effect before but it did not work on the CBG i tryed it on at the time and come think of it i did use a differend kind of paper, this time it was a more thick paper like say a bissenis card type card and that does the trick, it gives that snappy snare drum like sound, i do a lot of investigating and electricity was not a thing of the past that they used alot so it all got to bee done whit acoustic stuff and the way you record it(mostly verry close up) thanks for the comments fellors Greeeeettssszzz A.D.
