Hi Richard,
Thanks for your generous commentary. Yes, I admit - I am partial to that early R&R vibe. The "Maybelline" progression works pretty well for most tunes of that genre. I've been playin' "Rocket 88" quite a bit lately.

Hey Richard,
thanks for the kind words man. Believe it or not, the video was taken with my Kodak Easy Share Camera. I think I got it at Wal-Mart for under $100.00... i love the camera, bring it with me every where i go!

take care bro,
