A quick bit of foolin' around with a riff from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" Theme, using my fave Didley Bow: AGP #362 - ''Diddy Mahog''
It's not as up tempo as the real thing, but it's as fast as the Ham Fists & Fingers can manage without stuffin; it up any more than I already have :-D
A 3 String attempt will be posted tomorrow :-)

Yep!, love this particular 1 string Walloper Rick, and no!, not Pirate legs, "Thank Goodness", came close to gaining a Peg Leg back in 2011, thanks to what was either a White Tail Spider Bite or whats called a Pyoderma gangrenosum, specialists told me it probably wouldn't heal, and I was facing a big possibility of losing the bottom half of my right leg, but after being in and out of hospital for nearly a year, I managed to avoid the inevitable, when it was all over, I asked the normally quiet well spoken Vascular Surgeon how come it healed, and his reply was "I Don't F#ck!' Know".  :-)

One string magic that carries a wallop! Are those pirate legs though?

"Thanks Derek", just some of the 320 odd Gits I still have in my possession. :-)

I always love a good ol' diddley bow video. There's something magical about a single string instrument.
