After the grandiose Sunday Song last week, I decided to keep it simple. Here's a cover of Bobby Darin's Dream Lover on CBG. I recorded this video outside. Sorry about the wind noise.

Love the sound of that 4 string.

Thanks Doug. Now that you mention it, I remember seeing you do this one with The Slingers a while back. You're right! Smacking the box is what makes it. :-)

Nicely played and sung Kale! Great to hear the percussive parts on this classic. We already have it on our playlist for tomorrow night! A Slingers fave.
