Great Frank! The spirit done gotchoo! One of the things I love about hearing and seeing you do Rev. Davis' songs is that you make them a little more accessible and comprehensable. With Davis its always as if its the actual voice and hands of God playing, and they feel almost supernatural. the fact that someone else can play and sing them really, really well, brings them more into the world if you know what I mean.

thanks, O'muck. I hope someday to be able to return these songs to some semblance of their former inscrutability!

Good one, frankie. I always love the way this song embraces the dissonance. Nicely done.

Been away from Rev. Davis and the guitar for months and months now...  a visit to a friend ended up in a guitar coming home with me on basically a permanent basis, so I figured it was time to re-acquaint myself:

Frankie, as the others have said, great work. Your playing maintains the Reverend's feel, and also has much of yourself in it. Your singing is all you, and, while I've come to like Davis's singing quite a lot, that was a journey that took some time, and there's much to be said for approachability.

That looks like a J-50 or the like. New or old? Sounds old, which I recognize is to a great extent your hands, but even so, if it's new, someone's done a nice job.
