Yours to have AGP, it would be an honor and no capitol punishment involved. Learning still to play these one stringers, but your right, Uncle’s Mojo shines through! Kangaroo Court Rock! Thanks very much for your input and motivation my friend!

I tried to channel Jack Bruce David Gilmore style A.D! This song wasn’t planned, actually I was working on another song and just started horsing around with the Diddley and took it for a ride. I like your comment about timbre off the voice matching the Diddley. Cally smoothie drum beat hit the spot on the Zoom multitrack workstation. Thank you buddy!

Hope the vocals aren’t to loud Uncle, I deleted two previous YouTube takes because of buzzing and rope burn. I look forward very much to hearing your Hudson Terraplane Diddley, come out the closest and let that baby sing. Thanks for your kind words and inspiration my friend!

"Well Done Richard", great original song, sounds terrific, might have to steal that one!, and definitely a bit of "Unc Mojo" shining through on the Diddley.  :-)

PS:  My Hudson Terraplane diddley is much neglected.  I need to get it out of the closet and amp it up.

Comment by Uncle John on June 12, 2019 at 8:34am

Hey, Richard.  You've got the vocals tuned up to ten and soulful.  Title, lyrics, theme, sound and amp setting all working together.  Good art all around and the song should be a keeper.
