Walk Right In (cover on slide CBG & kazoo)

Happy Sunday from the workshop! Most people know this classic tune due to The Rooftop Singers version in the 1960s. However, it's actually a Gus Cannon tune from the 1920's. This week, I do a rendition on 3-string slide cigar box guitar and kazoo.

Intro@ 0:00
Song @ 0:55

Outstanding choice Kale! It’s on our playlist for Monday (determined two weeks ago). Slidin’ and Kazooin’, what more could we ask for? I’m smiling; well done!

Thanks UncleJ and BrianQ. Gus was also one of the first to play slide on a 5-string banjo.

Comment by BrianQ. on October 24, 2021 at 2:23pm

Kool!! The folk cover was happy go lucky, but the original had a different vibe & was played with lots of soul!!! ol’ Gus was also known for his pocketknife slide technique?
