traditional folk song.

@ Poorness Studios I do like the song! I just printed the chords and lyrics and worked up a version without listening to anyone's version. I listened to Dylan's today. Would have probably tried to borrow more from it if I'd had it fresh in my head.
Such a great song. It always sounds good in any style. Fast, slow, it doesn't matter... it's just a great tune. Thanks for this rendition Steve.
@ Uncle John Thank You! I recorded that last week while I was on a work trip. Set the phone on the bed with no external mic. Got close because the AC unit was making a racket.
Dat's a BIG BOX! Sounds big too. Excellent on play and vocals. I kind of like the camera angle too. And the strum.
@A.D. EKER Thanks! I'm not sure what the box is. Had a strange flap door with a divider that could slide out and compartments down the middle. I think maybe a custom box for a piece of equipment like a microscope or something. I built the neck a while back, but I had a smaller box on it. Never was happy with the sound, so I modified it to fit the bigger box. Pics Here : https://sycamorecreekmusic.blogspot.com/
Nice sounding Big Box Six Steve ! Wine or Soap box ? recycled neck?
