Skate Case - original blues- no inhaled bugs.

Filmed in a pioneer cemetery in Iowa. DGB tuned cigar box. Played in the key of G with a C harp.

New to me form of blues where the first line is repeated 3 times - the second and third time is played and sung the same with maybe a small lyrics variation.

This was the fist take. I wanted better harp, so tried again and inhaled a bug on take two. It was hot and buggy, so I called it done.

The skate case is a Wes Carl amp. It works great, but in this case I was unplugged.
