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?

At 6:24am on June 20, 2019, Dave Lynas said…

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.

I couldn't find the Blues guy that recorded it first, but i did find a "Ruth Etting that recorded it in 1931 to 1937.http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/album/easy-come-easy-go-original-recordings-1931-1937-ruth-etting/3610152200332

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

Hey there AD. I don't know if you saw my latest video (Ramones cover) but I think you'd dig it. I used a homemade drone box made with video game oscillators for the background noise.

At 10:01am on May 9, 2019, Bob "Ambrose" Negus said…

That's a neat and clever thing to do with the copper hinge.  I like the body colout too.  It's very kind of you to say Andries, I have had some very nice comments on my builds... which I greatly appreciate.  I think I need to start building another one ha, ha.
