Hey Carl, I really enjoyed that!! I guess I really do need to get a camera and mic's and do some recordings myself....I guess I've been kind of intimidated by the thought of getting everything right.....eventually.....

Thanks Rick,
it's not that hard, you just have to overcome the initial reluctance, just do it and don't ponder too much about it.
I'm almost 10 years on YouTube now and it has made me a much better player.  It made me practice with more intent and joy and it's a healthy challenge to come up with new things.

Very nice. I always like seeing how people approach the sort of stop-time tremolo picking part of this tune.

Excellent! One of my favorite Blake tunes to listen to and play. I really like the groove you have while playing this and at the start of the break your tremolo picking with your middle finger while hitting the bass notes with your thumb is fantastic. What a fun break.
