Thanks Poorness! When I do my Intro to Cigar Box Guitars class for the college seniors program this is the last song we do because everyone loves doing the walk down riff. I love sending them out feeling like guitar players!

Good one Doug. I always forget how great of a song this is until I hear it again. :-)

Will. It’s always great to have you join us from Cali. It’s crazy out here in the Wild, Wild West! Maybe one of these days some brave souls from East of the Mississippi will join us. We always do the easiest songs first! And since only the leader is unmuted, no one hears your mistakes anyway. Although all mine are obvious!!!

Uncle John. Agreed! This is a fun song at our local uke group. I adapted for the 3-string CBG and it is even more fun to do. A whole group of players doing the walk down run together is a kick.

That is me in the upper left, and as usual, I am lost most of the time....I got the riff down by the end.

Nice.  I like.  Although Nancy S. back in the day was easier to look at.  I don't know if that would still be true.

Decided to use my new Uncle Crow Style Chugger at our Zoom jam last night. I included some footage before and after the song so you can get a better feel for what are jams are like. Enjoy!
