Who knew indeed BrianQ? I’m surprised on a regular basis on what is possible on 2 and 3-string cigar box guitars. We will try to keep things interesting with songs flying under the oldies radar!

Doug, you continue blow my mind with the great song selections, who knew? I would have never guessed I would be hearing this one on cbg :)

I really appreciate the compliment Uncle John! I love to sing and play with others and I’m happy when I can get a song in a form that I can sing reasonably well. For our group, in it’s current form, if I can’t lead it, we can’t do it. The vocal range and nuances of some singers are way beyond my skill set or ability to remember variations. Great to listen to; hard to duplicate! Some songs, when I get them in the right key, are surprisingly fun to sing. This is one of those songs.

You are correct Kale! Some of the 3D printed frets are starting to show wear. Metal is hard on plastic. When the buzzing starts, I’ll get a chance to try out my new technique for selective fret replacement.

Very good.  One of the best things you have going is that you always let yourself sound like Doug Thorsvik on vocals and you don't try to imitate the original artist.   I like your stuff.

You get some serious use out of that chugger Doug. This is a fun tune for 1-finger format.
