Thanks for the comment Tom, will post more in the future.
It's a L-00 copy made by John Gr?ven - my best so far (but isn't that what we always say about the last one we got :)

Very nice playing Stovepipe and great tone. I was fascinated by the extreme curve of your thumb, has it always been like that or is it just years of picking?

You've clearly worked on nailing fretted altered chords in open tuning, adds a lot of interest and great to listen to combined with the slide. Keep it up, and give us some vocals if you feel so inclined!

Thanks Rivers.
Both of my thumbs are that way.  For the right hand that's good as it gives a good angle for strong attack; for my left hand it's less of a convenience as it gives me unsufficient support that way and causes too much strain on my index finger.  That's the reason I must avoid barchords and especially halfbar chords. 
The slide tune is in standard tuning by the way so I use ordinary E, A and B chords. If you don't know the original artist (Nick Katzman) get his cd (on Shanachie I think, I only have the old lp's on Kicking Mule); he's a great CB player.

Beautiful playing. Great sound - what did you use to record it?

You put us in a difficult position Daddy Stovepipe - deciding whether to be inspired or pop downstairs and burn those guitars.  Great playing - and very enjoyable too!

I'll try very hard and go for the inspiration option...

Wise choice Parlor Picker ;D
I used a JVC505Everio camera with a harddisc.  I transferred the recording to a dvd and gave it to my son to upload it (finally those kids come in handy after all  ;)  He said there's some loss in quality but it's good enough for me.  If I'd hook up the camera directly to the computer it might turn out even better.

Well that's impressive, I just assumed you were in open tuning. Nice job, I missed the joins.

That's not to say I won't watch it again and look for them...  >:D

You probably know this but the great Johnny Shines played a lot of slide in standard tuning.

That's some fine playing!  I too was intrigued by the curve of your picking hand thumb; you employ it to great effect.  I'm familiar with some of Ton Van Bergeyck's music, but not that particular tune.  I love way the arrangement incorporates Tampa Red's licks in drop D.  Thanks for posting the video.

Thanks for sharing a thoroughly enjoyable tour-de-force on both pieces. That Boogie Dance is a remarkable assembly of cool licks with some very fast and clean picking. Excellent tone too. Parlor Picker summed it up nicely - I'm resolved to throw my L-00 on the fire, but I can't seem to get my National to ignite.  Where is that gasoline when you need it? What would Jimmie do?
 ;)
And congratulations on the daunting technical accomplishment of capturing your performance on video!

FrontPage: actually, I've always fancied an L-00, so rather than torch the old girl, why not send her over to me in the UK and I can pretend to burn it.  You'll feel a whole lot better - honest.

I know a good scrap yard for the National as well, if you like...

Hi,
Here's my lap slide version of this classic.
It's based on some tab I got from a Japanese guitarist : Tokyo Uchida.

Enjoy,
Carl

Hi,
Here's my jazzed-up version of another Lemon classic.
I owe a lot to Duck Baker here.

Hi,
Here's my version of a Robert Johnson song.  He played it in standard key of C but my slideversion is in Spanish and based on Homesick Mac's playing of this song.

Enjoy,
Carl

Hey Daddy Stovepipe
Nice clip! Very nice style!  I watched your version of One Kind Favor too.
Sweet! That lap guitar really sounds good too. Nice work!   Lenny
