Thanks for watchin’ and the delightful run down A.D., you’re making me smile! Believe it or not Hippie Songs are a thing according to Google! I am more Hippie than I thought too; they were more of the soundtrack of my youth than I realized.

You are very observant Uncle John! My daughter cut my hair while I was in Phoenix, it’s been years! She always cuts it a bit shorter and I like it. I definitely would not be able to do this medley on a 6-string on my best day. I suspect Melanie has aged just like the rest of use. Where did those years go?

Doug got a hair cut.   This one really shows off your playing method.  Pretty cool..  Good songs too!   I wonder what Melanie looks like now.  

Peace, brother.

Thanks Kale! We are preparing for our first festival performance. I’m hoping the medley is not too ambitious for us, but it gives a good snapshot of what is possible on a CBG with 1-finger chords. We actually play on every fret up to and including the 12th! Plenty of key changes to keep things interesting.

Fantastic! Great medley from Doug & crew.
