You got it Kale! In these tough times, we have to diversify our operation. We are the supply chain!

The Slingers are expanding the business... making potions now. :-)

Sounds like you need another dose A.D.! Don’t we all! You are very observant, it is like strumming a bass. If you took a standard 4-string bass and tuned the A string down to a G, it would match the green trimmer line string. The CBG is tuned GGB. Essentially, It’s standard GD Chugger with a bass G.

The Searchers version is the one I’m familiar with too AGP. The crazy lyrics make it fun to sing and play. Glad you enjoyed it.
