Thank you everybody who viewed and commented on this song. I love listening and watching and especially learning from such a great group of diverse musicians and friends as here on CBN. I'm out of my comfort zone for the first time in a long time and so much learning to do and appreciating the great music here. From the patio, thanks everyone!

Yes Sir! Thank you APG! Someone spiked my drink with Geritol! Have to hammer down a Diddley bow , especially one of Uncle's, that has an attitude. I figure at my age if I'm going to do the crazy, do it big! Thanks!

"Oh! Yes" that is how to "Roll and Tumble" a Diddley Bow :-D

Thank you Anthony! Nice to meet you! Be careful, I've heard getting in between Dave and a camera is a very dangerous thing! Haha! Very kind comments, but I hope I not judged by this one!

Andries, that was great advice, good point! A oven mitt perhaps! A helmet also for projectile tools! Well, this may be the first time I recorded what you see is what I recorded first! The very dangerous lead on Uncle's powerfully electrified lap, perhaps a better choice of words could have been used, with a drum track. I recorded it at the same time in my multitrack Zoom workstation. Then added bass, a four string CBG, and vocal track. Then transferred those tracks back to the original video. Not real happy with the mix, the rythem and vocals were kind of drown out. I made a cd and might send out a studio version video with pictures. I personally like the rythem track the best, but it's real hard to hear on this one. Up next I think I'll do a high wire walk while playing a three string CBG singing The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again". Thank you Andries! We're having too much fun here!

Glove is great option to eradicate hand ,blood and other ingeries to body or human parts, that are open to poseble inflicted damage!, let me get this !you create a track, drums cbg vocals (title Rumblin and Tumlin) then you play the track and record yourself playing solo on diddley Bow & srewdriver?

Keeping it live ! you dont stop amasing  Richard!! by the way whats ZOOOM!?

Derek, I really had to concentrate more than I have in a long time with a dangerous weapon in my hand! One slip, or in the case, slide, and there goes an ear! Intensity yes, and more than a few choice words. Comes a time in the early afternoon the ocean breeze picks up from incoming fog, and it blew my tablet over five straight times. One of the takes could have landed me a Grammy, only 23 seconds to go.....splat! This years award for best screwdriver device goes to.............someone else! One string is very unforgiving. I allow myself 12 mistakes before redo! You see me turn my head midway to the right, my wife was laughing her ass off. I didn't eyes rolled that far back in the head! She was there in case my head exploded! Thanks again D, intensity caused ramble-mouth disease .
