One of my favourite all time tunes by one of my favourite all time Artists, it ain’t how Hank plays it, but it’s how I play it, in my own, “love it or hate it” Slide Style, minus the Pedal Steel and Fiddle Solo’s of course!

"Thanks Derek", Apart from the bits I made up myself, I stole he rest of the pieces, from the Glen Watt and Shane Speal tutorials, the lead-in is kinda-sorta the way Shane done it.  :-D

Nice rendition of this classic Hank tune, Alan. Smooth and clean sliding. Cool lead-in too!

Andries D. EKER, this is one of abt 12 Stainless Steel and Aluminium Steamer builds I have, one of my favourites is a light Aluminium Steamer like the one pictured, they are a very common item that I find in my local Charity Shops for abt $1 each :-)

Aww!!!, "Thanks Nancy Kat", such a sad little "Puddy Tat", this is one of 3 sad songs that bring a little tear to my eye, along with Blind Willy Johnson's "Dark Was the Night" and Sonny Landreth's "Outward Bound"  ;-)

Hey, I love the art of my Dave Lynas slides and I use them.  But my fave and best mistake hider is my Dunlop tapered brass, # 230..

"Thanks UJ", this is my main go to slide for most of my playing, it's a Jim Dunlop J224 Heavy Wall Brass Slide, but I'm  not sure  where the Ham-fisted-bricky gets the Feather Touch from with such a solid chunk of Brass.  :-D

"Thanks Andries", the shiny tin is actually 2 separate stainless steel charity shop purchases, a steamer and a pot lid ($6 for the 2) that just happened to fit together nicely! :-)
