R.E.M. on a CBG. Fun cover of this R.E.M. tune they released in 1987 on their Document album. Played on my 4 string cigar box guitar. Thanks for watching!

Thank you, Rope. It translated to a 4 string pretty easily. I always crank this tune when it comes on the radio :)

Great REM tune adapted to your guitar and voice really well!

Thank you, Kale. I just recently bought this Champ 40 amp used and it has some great effects. Used the delay / reverb combo on the amp with a Crayon overdrive pedal.

Nice cover of this alternative rock anthem. You're getting some nice tones out of that CBG. Nice singing too.

Thank you, Alan! They do have a lot of great tunes and many I have on vinyl from back in the day. This song came on the radio on my drive home from work yesterday so I decided to give it a try that night.
