amy and crow perform bush's comedown!

amy is now picking up the drums to play along while i perform, and she's never played an instrument before, and she's doing fantastically well! i'm very proud of her!
performed with:
-homemade "uncle crow style" three string cigar box slide guitar with eye bolt tuners
-all black djembe
-tambourine worn anklet-style around amy's foot

thanks for watching! more duo videos to come, as i am very excited to have some percussion to accompany me!!


have a great day, and keep building and playing, and show the world what you discover, you never know who you will inspire next!!!

Cool. I like mix of "primitive" instruments but a contemporary song. Great job!

I like that a lot. You work well together and I'm looking forward to more from the duo.

good job guys! before we got into a rock band together i used to hit a djembe for my brother in law. it was considerably smaller than yours and instead of a tamborine i kept an egg shaker in one hand
