“Leave It There” homemade resonator guitar

I made the cone out of an old “no fishing” sign. I peened the cover out of an old frypan lid.
I hope you enjoy it!

A fine high quality Guitar Lappy, love the Timber used, and the use of a stain?, to high light the grain. :-)

I'm back again, Lappy.  I really like the song and the way you presented it with your twin on the left and you on the right.  The song sounded very familiar, but it took me a while to place it.   I looked it up and it was written by Charles Albert Tindley, circa 1906.   

I think that Hank Williams was probably influenced by this tune when he wrote his Gospel son, 'Calling You'.  It is not the same, but similar.  

Interesting on the 'Jack-:Leg' preacher Phillips too.  I thought at first you were speaking of Utah Phillips, but apparently not.  Good bible verses that correlated to the song. Nice witness.  I sure wish you and I lived close by each other - I would like to try playing some old timey and Gospel with you,.   Thanks, happy Christmas season and God bless.

Lovely song and instrument,.  You are a true luthier and great old timey performer.
