Thank you Dave! I prefer headphones over the separate earphones. More comfortable and less ear fatigue. I try using my iPad speakers, but unless the music is professionally compressed and EQ’d, lots of high and low end tones go unheard. I don’t think the headphones use any more iPad battery either.

Fabulous Rick. I had to listen with my iPad speakers. I’ve been having earphone issues. Wearing them too much has been plugging my tubes. Not sure what to do about it. I’ve got Bose high end phones but….

Thank you A.D! Great to hear and read your comments. I battle headaches and other old gezer issues these days, so my contributions are sporadic. I’m subscribed to your YouTube listings, wouldn’t miss a one. Thanks for the nice words my friend.

Thank you Rope! I think you have a great phone if it makes me sound like Clapton. Yeah, most of my music influences come from the early seventies. You have a keen ear, I do my blues phasing in rock like most of the bands back then. I appreciate your very kind words.

Thank you AGP! I use a couple great effect apps. They’re simple by themselves, but when mixed together provide some interesting viewing. It does take more time than the music part, but the alternative is looking at my mug. I think my decision is wise ha. Appreciate your nice and inspiring  comments Alan.

Getting it down Richard ! verry fine mixing like only you do ! pleasure !!

Yeah, that is some great playin’ and the overall sound is interesting. Full.

Now, I was listenin’ on my phone so I may be way off, but those “laid back” vocals reminded me of Clapton early 70s. Maybe just the easy vocal over the flashin’ string work. Sounds great.

Very laid-back vocals and playing on this one Rick, with some cool video effects, something I don't think I would have the expertise, "or" patience to do!  :-)

Thank you RTZ! I still am getting use to three strings. Played 6 strings  for a long time, and four strings are even easier. Fretless threes are great for slide, as you know with your great Swampy. I look forward to hearing your new 3 string. Yes, Uncle John gifted me this beauty I’d say going on four years ago now. 

Comment by Richard Sundberg on June 24, 2021 at 4:20pm

Thank you Uncle! It’s a song I’ve played this song many times just practicing over the last few years, so I guess I was more relaxed to focus on my guitar playing and let the vocals just dance along. That and the can is out for money for new shoes ha.
