High praise, comparison a bit with Talking Head David Byrne and Rot Orbison. I really like them both Clarky, and if some of their singing rubbed off, I’m a lucky dude. I have done a few Orbison songs in the past.....don’t know if the tears were from the lyrics or my howling. Thanks very much Clarky!

It’s a LPG Downtown Vinnie gave me last year. It has great tones for strumming. Still figuring out its  nuances for sliding. Thanks Danny!

Thank you very much Derek! Your right, the drum beat worked well and kept me from wandering too far off the path. 

Comment by Clarky on Wednesday

That's some smooth playing and singing Richard.  I still think you sound a bit like David Byrne, maybe a tinge of Roy Orbison in there too.

Comment by Danny Gordon on Wednesday

great job Richard love the sound of that 4 string, vocals were great too

Comment by Richard Sundberg on Wednesday

A.D, my brother sent me a YouTube video of Alvin Lee doing this song. That inspired me to do it, totally forgot how much I liked it. I know the Dave Edmunds best, so it’s his style I’m shooting for. The relic guitar beauty LPG was given to me last year by Vinnie. It has some very nice character!  Thanks my friend!
