Nice! good to hear a woman's voice on the back porch, too. ;) Compliments to Lesley B., nice singing. And of course, one of the coolest guitar parts in country blues.

edited to add: OK, so it's not exactly on the back porch (wasn't paying attentino to the category), but still fun...

I'll chime in here too -- both vocals and guitar - very nice!  A weenie favorite -- we obsessed on the lyrics for years.

And nice to see ez-folk providing space for tunes.

Wow! you've got an amazing voice! I really loved your song. Really warm.

What kind of a guitar sound is that?

Thanx for the efforts keep it comin!

Guitar is an Encore W265 cost about UK?120 new. It sounded better than several more expensive ones I tried. The solid top makes a difference. Pickup is a Fishman Rare Earth Blend which is an electromagnetic soundhole pickup (I don't use the integral microphone). Standard tuning but 2 frets low DGCFAD, my favorite cos it gives nice bends, less blisters and fewer broken strings. Capo is on fret 4 to suit Lesley's voice. Root chord is an Em chordshape so it comes out as key of F#m I think. Recording was presumably out of the mixer deck at the open session. Si
