DougThorsvik, to be called out for my slinging’ by the slinger king himself is a true compliment!

DaveLynas: The road does lead to Minnesota, for sure. Y’all are such a gracious and supporting community in here - it’s cool that it’s a worldwide community, but it’s also a bummer that it’s worldwide ‘cause it ain’t easy to sit on the same porch for playin’.

1st class as usual Rope! Go big or go home. Great video background, backup instruments, vocals and, of course cigar box guitar slinging. I enjoyed immensely!
