working on a super lofi cd Called Trainload of Hurt Feelings. This is a 2 stringed cigar box guitar and a one string bass made from a fish crate I got from Larry's Market and an old washboard. The song is called coal Miners it is an old song in the public domain.

the bass was made from a crate the market next to where I live had. They put fish in it. Same idea though yes

Is that a washtub bass I hear playing along? Great performance. I could listen to this stuff all day.
