Thanks, Alan.  I really like that Charlie Parr and company video you loaded for me on FB.  My fave version yet.  I'd like to do it kind of in that style and have that Aerosmith group singing with me.  You too!

Great Combo of LPG, Slide & Sax 'UJ', on a Good Ole Gospel Song, covered by many, one my fave's is by "Charlie Parr and the Black Twig Pickers",  and can now add yours to that list, and I, like yourself, am big fan of the "KISS" principle to playing our beloved CBG's. :-)

Kale, stripped down?   What do you mean stripped down?   ;)   Thanks, my friend.   A lot of time simple works best for me.

Thanks, Doug and Stephen!  I am sure that line is open.

I concur with Kale! You have all the elements working together Uncle John. A song with an important message is always a plus!!!

I gotta say John... I really like the way you do that thumb strum, slide, and harp together. You always get a great mix of tones. It's super stripped down but such a classic sound.
