This is a cover of an original song by Danny Boy Davidson. He did the original on 6 string guitar but said he wanted to try it on a cigar box guitar. I was able to do it by re-tuning a 4 string CBG to open A. This video is being published with his permission.

Oh good golly. I can't live up to Dylan. He's a genius. I appreciate the compliment though. Thanks for checking out the video Bob.

I agree with Silent Jim.  Very Dylanesque but you do sound better than Dylan.  Thanks for sharing this and the open A tuning.  I enjoy hiding in a room alone and playing Knocking On Heaven's Door.  Now I can play it on a 4 string.

Thanks Uncle. I really like Danny’s stuff so I hope it inspires others.

That song is a hard hitter.  Great job and a big affirmation for Danny.

Ha ha. I hear ya Jim. It's definitely a sad song.

Great cover and instructional! Cool song from DBD...

Boy Howdy I'd care! I'd go out and get me one of Shane Wagstaffs durn 'ol strippers if a woman treated me like that. Be waitin' for her to get back so's to show her how it's done. <8^))#

Might be able to use that progression for 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' too...
