Beautiful Beetle. Nice meld with the video too. Been trying to figure out how to add clips into the recording middle parts. You did it smooth! Love your mellow style.

Great stuff Beetlejuice!  Nice to hear some good sounds coming from the bathroom.  All I hear in mine is plopping noises or the shower running!

Thanks again for al the kind words!.....I owe most of it to the guitar maker Rodney!.....he hit a home run when he built it.

Beautiful music in a live-filmed performance. Very cool to see you posting here as a straight up talented musician. I think your compositions and style are CBG movement gold.

Now flush the toilet and hand me my showercap.

Keeping a recording studio in your shower/bathroom not only makes great music, it cuts down on water consumption by at least 50% !!!
