I mostly figured this out on uke first then transferred it to guitar.  Missing out the bass on the 4th string is really frustrating since I can't get my forefinger down in that D-shape yet..I will persevere!  Mr T doesn't stay in tune so well since I dropped him, unfortunately...

Great Laura. You pretty much nailed it. My favourite Gary Davis song.
May I ask why you always record songs in your car?

*claps*

Out of interest Laura, how much time do you get to devote to playing and singing?  You've clearly put a lot of time and effort in and are really getting the results.

Thanks everyone!  Simon, I do play most evenings and get about 2-3 hours a day I suppose.  I sing ALL the time, but I don't consider that practice - I just love doing it!  When I'm not doing either of those things i'm listening and I think that's the thing that has helped the most in improving.  It's funny looking back at the "hesitation blues" I recorded because I barely knew the song and was just following the TAB.

Yes..it is a good place to hide from the kid! The house I rent is also a laminate floor horror and I prefer the way the recordings come out in the car.

Well exactly - that's why you need to start playing out  :) - it is a separate skill set.  And your playing and singing is so advanced, IMO, you need to start.  Find an open mic, play a few tunes, --- I'm predicting great audience feedback!

I agree with Slack on that.  You're way beyond much of what one sees at open mics already.  If you were still over this way, I could point you to a couple of perfect places to get started, but I don't know any in Ireland I'm afraid  :)
