Same Ol’ FP Blues - RopeWalkerCountryStar

I built a cigar box guitar out of a 5 Vegas box and set out to learn how to play it. As so many before me have, I got stuck in Folsom Prison. I guess it’s a good place to start...

Yes! That’s how it’s done!!! Way to make the song your own Rope. Delightful!

Thanks AD Eker! After watching many of your pieces (like Early Morning Rain, Don’t Think Twice, Honky Tonk Women), I reckon we’re of a similar mind about covers of other folk’s songs. They’ve done ‘em themselves just about as good as can be. It’s our job to twist ‘em up some, and do ‘em different. I kept to the tune pretty much, but tried to shine a light on the trainy-ness and stuck-ness of it.

Thanks for the encouraging words Uncle John! And Southern Ray and Poorness Studios too! I appreciate it. I’ll keep at it and maybe I’ll figure it a bit!

 Yes, indeedy-do. I like what you did with this. I second UJ on hoping more is coming.

I named that tune in four notes.  Good version -playing, singing, hat.   Some good camera angles and change ups.  Looks good.  Yup, many of us post to youtube, then embed and post on CBN.   Seems to allow the most folks to view.    

More songs coming?  I hope so.
