“Trouble in the Chicken Yard” with vocals added

"I know that feeling of going out to the chicken coop in the morning and finding out a fox, raccoon, or opossum has been there the night before. It's blues. Again, nice work, Dave."

Hi Bruce, good to meet you.  I've built two CBGs, rebuilt a cheap guitar into a 3-string, and I'm now finishing up my first diddley bow.  Will be posting pictures soon.  I'm one of the oldest geezers here, someday I'll post an avatar picture.  - Don
