nice playing  ritchie - ry cooder is a good shout actually, and a fine one to be compared to

I haven’t listened to Ry Cooder much, so I went and listened to him on YouTube for over an hour, man have I been missing out! Feeling Bad Blues and Swamp Dog Blues really stood out! What beautiful sounds he gets out of that 1930s Broman Resonator Guitar. I’ve always been a Leo Kottke fan! AGP, to be mentioned with those two guys is overly generous and kind, and one of the best compliments I ever received. I must of swerved into doing something right, thank you so very much AGP!

I walk a thin chocolate line here A.D! I decided for calling this acoustic because I recorded it using one track with an open mic and the other with Swampy plugged in with no effects. After recording, I added some reverb to both tracks. I’m a little Jekyll and Hyde and guys I don’t even have names for. Thanks, great and insightful comments A.D!

It’s one of those times I was taking a break working on another song Uncle. Picked up, pun not intended, the old Swampy and it turned out spontaneously. Wish I had the video recorder on. I did set up my iPad and tried to duplicate it, but I was more in the mood to eat chocolate than play chocolate. Thank you for your nice comments Uncle!

A Witch can be sweet, but be careful. Thank you Dave!

This guitar is like a box of chocolates, lots of characters and attitudes. Thanks Pick!

PS; and maybe a bit of Leo Kottke as well  :-)

"Nice Mellow Vocals & Swampy Sounds Richard", it might be just me, but I can hear a Ry Cooder influence in there, which is a good thing!, :-)
