Thanks, Ambrose and Doug.  I am getting a lot of good out of my two little CBMs.   One standard tuning and right now, this one in GDGB.

Great cover in classic “Uncle John” style! Now it’s time to check out the LPG version.

That was a cool and sassy CC Rider groove you got out of that Mando Unc J!

Thanks, Derek, Dave and Kale.   (almost called Kale Dale to keep the D thing going.).   

Derek, it's an old song I've done a lot and somehow forgot about it in recent years.   Maybe I better re-add it to my list.  

That would be interesting to hear, Dave.  I kinda play all the instruments very similarly...

I do too, Kale. I think I like the mando version best.  Good to have changeups and different sounds.

Nicely done John. I love that CBM sound.

Comment by Dave Lynas on May 24, 2021 at 2:49pm

Both are good Unc. It sure would be nice to hear you dubbing one over the other Guitar & mando and tinWhitch.

Good version here, John. Fine performance.

Thanks, Tee, Alan and Andries.  I had fun doing both mandolin and LPG versions.  It's harder to get a good vocal to guitar balance with the plugged in LPG.  The plugged in LPG seems to be the instrument that I have the most fun playing of all the instruments that I own.  My two cigar box mandolins are nice change-ups in tone and easy players.
