Marty the Random Guy "One String Blues" -Rehearsal-

The previous week, I sat down in an old family barn house near our summer cabin, which is located out in the archipelago of the Southwest coast of Finland, and did some writing and playing.

The riff for "One String Blues" had been haunting me for some time already and now I finally took the time to actually play the song. I am playing one of my homemade "Martybows" that I keep at the cabin. This tune still needs some final polishing, so this version could in fact be called "One String Blues (First take)" or something similar.

Anyway, the environment could not have been better for some CBG playing and for seeking inspiration. I will definitely be writing and probably even recording (for real) some more tunes in these countryside settings.

Mighty good playing, song and singing.  The beat, speed and playing puts me in mind of R.L. Burnside.
