Another good one, Doug! I have played this a lot on my bari uke on the back deck over the years.

Glad you enjoyed our Cally oriented song! We have enjoyed contributing to the festival. Don’t get down to Cally as much as I would like to.

A excellent song of the well fed crowd here at CallyFest central. I’m not sure Monterey may be considered S. California, but I always say N. California. Hi Will  and Mike, that’s great to know. We desperately need rain this year, could use some of that pouring. Well done guys! Thanks Doug and group for all your wonderful contributions to this year’s festival.

Thanks Kale! I think that about 90% of the songs we do I have never played on a 6-string. This is one of them.

Great tune Doug.

Thanks James! I don’t always know how well a song will work with 1-finger chording and this one surprised me. It’s easy to play and sing; a winning combo in my book.

Good one Doug looks like the group had fun with this one
