Highway 61 Blues - recent relic build demo

Original by me played on a 3 string cigar box guitar in DGB tuning. Poplar neck. Vintage box. Piezo, but played unplugged here. 24 inch scale. DGB tuning.

The 61 highway starts up in Bob Dylan country - near Hibbing, Minnesota and runs through Iowa, Missouri, Tennessee and Mississippi. It really is the home of the blues.

Thanks, James.  I am happy with Willie.  I did have to add a string tree, but that is not a big deal.  This song is one of my standards and one of 6-8 originals that I like well enough to keep in practice.
