Didge Ya Know?
I love the idea of taking an "Old Ratty Guitar" and turning the sounds it's willing to give into music. Great haunting delta vibe here.

Sorrt of
I don't really know either, I just went with the flow on the gits...the only thing I had to do overr was the didgeridoo cos it is a bit of a bugger to record....I ended up shoving a condenser mike inside the damn thing and it still did not pick up some of the effects i can now(albeit briefly)manage.Poo.Thanks for stepping in and taking a pew,See Ya .Jarvo.

It was just the
sheer pleasure and child like excitement of suddenly being abkle to crewate that sound that I have loved for years and had no idea how yo do...one set of instructions from PBMan anda leap of faith et voila. Fun it is ....Music well ,hmmmmmm,mebbe not exceopt by my own rules, and they fracture a lot of the accepted rules 80)

Folk?
Folk with some swamp style moodyness.
Like the effect you've got going on. Atospheric stuff. Nice one
Jarvoid said 2563 days ago (September 13th, 2010)

Coolness
It's fun to experiment, and this is a perfect example. No matter what I listen to, I close my eyes and create scenarios in my mind. I'm seeing little green frogs dressed in overalls and straw hats dancing on a farm.

Interesting stuff!

Only You
could think of doing something like this! It was really fun to listen to, and even better - it sounds like you had a heck of a time doing it. I love the artwork too. Is it yours?

I did
have a blast,it was just so damned great to be able to do those delta sounds at last after 30 years of thinking .."how the hell do they do that?" not saying that I have mastered the slide but it sounds a bit better than other efforts .Thanks for stopping in and having a listen.

Road trippy song
I can hear this as a movie soundtrack about an Ozarks road trip in an old jalopy, complete with chickens in the back seat. I love unique, unplanned music and this one was fun to listen to.

Glad you commented
Because somehow your new one got by me. Love this guitar work and the digederoo is really unique and cool in there. Something about that instrument puts a smile on my face. Love when the drums come in. I kind of like the jam session vibe this has. This song just sounds like fun.

Well to
be much too honest Maurice this kind of happened all by itself.The guitar was an experiment in open G tuning and i have tried some slide before in EADGBE but the sound from the guitar sort of just took over and led me by the hand.The rest sort of was inspired lunacy.Glad it sort of works tho'

Cheers, Chris
