I've been working on this tune for over a decade. Drop G tuning, a rare Tommy Johnson test recording.

Sweet. Sounds like time well spent, and a wonderful vocal.

My favourite bit is still the little smile at 13s though :)

Thank you! I make too many faces when I play music, I've been trying to look cool and detached but it just doesn't happen  :P
And Tommy's music makes me smile!
I've been somewhat protective of showing just what I'm doing on this tune but I've recently returned to playing in public after a brief break and I want to share some of the rarer tunes I perform. I do a set of Tommy's Paramounts and I never see/hear anyone tackling these tunes so I figured I better get them out there before others beat me to the punch!

Great job, Mike!

Wonderful singing as always, and very solid guitar picking as well! Nice to hear you, after a while.

Cheers,

Pan

Thank You, Pan. About a year or two ago my middle finger woke up and started wanting to join in. I've been able to pick more guitar with the digit addition
