Killing the blues, not here! That was stylish and heartfelt, blues with awesomeness. Love your guitar playing, it carries your vocals so very well. Super Derek, great video!

Thank you, Kale. It seemed like it needed some bass and I left space for the instrumental break. Fun to get out the electric guits now and then :)

Thank you, Andries. Computers and file storage are a headache, especially videos. I lose track which ones are on what computer. No actual blues here, just "virtual" Thanks!

Thank you, John. They have to play right and in tune or my OCD kicks in big time lol. Getting the bridge right and positioned for the proper amount of intonation (usually around 1/8 in. for light acoustic strings) makes all the difference from my experience. I like Shubb capos too since you can dial in just the right amount of clamping pressure without going sharp.
