Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground (cover on acoustic guitar)

I attempted to do this one on slide CBG and it just wasn't sounding right so I switched to guitar and bam... it worked. Here's a cover of a great 2001 tune from The White Stripes. It seems like a song about dead leaves is perfect for this time of year.

Thanks Doug and John. I always did like this song.

Not familiar with the song Kale, but I like it. You’ve got a great rhythmic grove going; love the sound of those bar chords. Muscle on!!! I think it would work well on a chugger.

I kind of like the White Stripes.  Had not heard this song that I can recall.  I like it the way you do it.  Quite a bit.     I like that Yamaha store bought too. 

This is darned good and I figure regular contributors like you and me get a pass for using a store bought for a video now and then.   But this one sounds like it might have been just as good and maybe had an even better vibe on a ho-made.
