I do like that lantern oil can guitar.  Likely a good idea to wait and decide on the electrics.  I have a fiddle started.  I think if I can get some design features done well, I will be able to play better.  Too hot to work on it today.  Around 35C.

Thanks Andries, glad you like the logo.  :-)
Shipping cost to the Netherlands is probably outrageous but if you want to order a shirt you can get them here:

Thanks on the Canned Heat version of One Kind Favor.  I like it.

Hi Andries, You're welcome.  I got your messages. You may be right - a bit of turbulence around the site perhaps?

Hi Andries. I don’t quite understand the comment as it is disconnected from the photo or video it’s referring to. But yes, I do play and value the Andries BCB guitar as well as my two Uncle guits. I have a lot of guits to play and I rotate. With the new organization, your guit came closer to my hand. Since I play fiddle with guit lately, I choose the guit by open tuning key. I usually use one of my builds for videos like you do. I’d never scrap out a good guitar like yours Andries. I might try and “improve” one as that’s the fun part.

Lots of the recordings over the years have had different Lyrics, but with the same title. Probably many other songs have been done this way too. I'm really not sure of the original lyrics myself.

I did enjoy your version. Keep on doing what your doing.

At 12:43pm on June 13, 2019, Bob "Ambrose" Negus said…

You're welcome. I see that you put a lot of thought and work into your videos and display artwork.

Absolutely! I took it as sincere, and a healthy wish for Uncle. I liked the focus on the tadpoles, and ran with it.
