Hi Andries. Yes it does have a space mellow vibe like the cello bass. A good contrasting element. Very nice discovery my friend. Bone Yard Good!

No it’s a desert with Coconut & Pandan leaves, quite tasty? Pandan grows & is widely used in Philippines, it also has health benefits? Cheers :)

Thanks for the idea Andries. I’ll look for a pedal and get one. I like the wall idea . It would thump teal good!

Yep, Captain Beefheart is genius! “Safe as Milk” is classic. Always loved “Spotlight Kid” album.

I do like that lantern oil can guitar.  Likely a good idea to wait and decide on the electrics.  I have a fiddle started.  I think if I can get some design features done well, I will be able to play better.  Too hot to work on it today.  Around 35C.

Thanks Andries, glad you like the logo.  :-)
Shipping cost to the Netherlands is probably outrageous but if you want to order a shirt you can get them here:

Thanks on the Canned Heat version of One Kind Favor.  I like it.

Hi Andries, You're welcome.  I got your messages. You may be right - a bit of turbulence around the site perhaps?

Hi Andries. I don’t quite understand the comment as it is disconnected from the photo or video it’s referring to. But yes, I do play and value the Andries BCB guitar as well as my two Uncle guits. I have a lot of guits to play and I rotate. With the new organization, your guit came closer to my hand. Since I play fiddle with guit lately, I choose the guit by open tuning key. I usually use one of my builds for videos like you do. I’d never scrap out a good guitar like yours Andries. I might try and “improve” one as that’s the fun part.

Lots of the recordings over the years have had different Lyrics, but with the same title. Probably many other songs have been done this way too. I'm really not sure of the original lyrics myself.

I did enjoy your version. Keep on doing what your doing.

You're welcome. I see that you put a lot of thought and work into your videos and display artwork.

I couldn't find the Blues guy that recorded it first, but i did find a "Ruth Etting that recorded it in 1931 to 1937.http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/album/easy-come-easy-go-original-recordings-1931-1937-ruth-etting/3610152200332
