Laura:

What the hell is wrong with that. Nothing that I could hear. Your playing is nice and smooth. And I stole two of your licks. Only complaint, sing more loudly. This is a bragging song, not Micheal Row Your Boat...

Seriously, well done.

Haha on the topic title Laura, very nice!

I couldn't help but notice your index flicking in and out of the video frame. And it appeared to me that you are doing some back picking with your index finger?  e.g. using the back side (fingernail side) on a downstroke?  Or is that an illusion?

Haha point taken Alex :P I thought I was singing pretty loud when I was recording but it does sound a bit flouncy..

Slack, I have absolutely no idea what I was doing.  I've been trying to play this with fingerpicks but it's not quite there yet, sounds so much better and more "rev style" but it's just too sloppy right now.

Bravo!!! For the life of me I can't get those Gary Davis licks done properly... Love the laid back singing, too!

nice! and I like the way you simplify the accompaniment a bit behind your singing - it's an important skill, really.

You've got a really nice voice, Laura.  Push that singing to the front a bit.  A really nice overall performance.

Very nice, thanks for posting, Laura. I like your voice too!

We seem to have some kind of a RGD party going on here, that's pretty cool! 8)

Cheers

Yes, good to see all the RGD!

Laura, not ropey at all. Sounds real good! If I was to offer constructive criticism, I'd say just dig in a little, and make it swing a little more. The Rev. really accented those down beats, da-DUM da-DUM da-DUM. Would make all those great licks you're playing pop a bit more.

BTW I've never heard Ropey as a description for music, just lead white paint. What does it mean here exactly?
