Trouble In Mind store bought guitar in A --+ some witnessing to GOD.

Good old eight bar blues (unless I screwed that up - timing is not my best quality). Kinda sad old blues, but it makes me think of life, depression, and the Son Of God.
If we pray, wait a bit and try to TRUST, He will come through for us.

Part of the reason I am posting this is because my home made guitar version was not quite where I wanted it to be. Mostly that was because, LIKE A LOT OF US, I don't have a big vocal range.

By getting out the magic capo and capoeing to A, I felt like I did better on this song.

Sweet and soulful song Unc J. Really enjoyed that. Your voice and that Martin sounded great in the key of A.

Thanks, Doug.  Those are big Plusses.

It is always more pleasurable to do a song when it’s in your vocal sweet spot! And this one sounds great.

That’s why I love 1-finger CBGslinging on a 2 or 3-string, I can play a song in any key I want to without a capo and the tuning issues that often accompany it’s use.

HA, Andries.  And it kind of goes with poor Chuck getting his thumb and pinky hurt.

Thanks and God bless you and the healing process, Chuck.  Thanks for the kind words.  Little things in life make a big difference.  It is scary to start putting yourself out there and doing videos.   We are a fairly welcoming group and know you have to start somewhere if you are starting at all.

Very nice uncle John, I've been really drawing on my faith lately. Om Monday I have an accident at work and hurt my thumb and pinky. I lost the tip of my pinky, and yesterday I had surgery on it. And yesterday was my 60 the birthday. Anyway, I love your video ,and. I'm trusting in God as I recover and heal.I get a lot of inspiration from all you guy's who post videos, and one of these days I hope to make my own video to contribute. John, you've been very supportive of me and I appreciate it. Thanks

Thanks, Alan.  I thought so too.  I think I sang it better with the six cappoed to A - did it in G on the four.
