O'Muck plays He's in the Jailhouse Now

From a house concert in deepest, frostiest, freezingest Maine this past week.
No extra charge for baby Lucy investigating the cameras.

Nice job indeed. Seems like I could hear some Jimmy Rodgers and Pink in there and maybe some RDG influences? Looked like a rough audience for sure. Especially Lucy, that one could be trouble ;)

Synthesis is the name of the game for me L.B. There are already so many more able players of original versions out there, Ari & Frank, for example. Calling it synthesis makes it sound more calculated than it is however. Its more a product of faulty memory and a stubborn resistance to doing things the "right" way.

Thanks again all. That guitar in the background is a mid sixties Gibson F-25 "Folksinger" belonging to my host Stu Kestenbaum. It is essentially an LG body
with an extra wide (classical size) twelve fret neck. It was marketed to be used with either nylon or steel strings, so you could be whatever kind of "Folksinger" you wanted to be. The two white pick guards derive from Flamenco guitars ( part of Folk music in them dayz). I used it for some bottleneck pieces. It is the only other one I've ever seen other THAN THE ONE I WAS GIVEN WHEN I WAS THIRTEEN, and foolishly ...sold. A small body twelve fret to the body x-braced mahogany , spruce and plastic Gibson...oy....what can I say?

I think it was around $300. new. I could have made $1200. just storing it ......
But its really not all that much better than this:

$259. at Maine Coast Music, Ellsworth ME.

How come human beings lose value as they get older but guitars and other instruments gain in value?
Dis is a system?  :P

Nothing wrong with being humble but that was one of the better versions I've heard. If I was to work this song up I'd be real happy if I could do that well. Nice blend of all the things I like in various versions. Boy, I get a lot of requests for that song.
