Thanks Uncle John! I’m glad one of the Slingers chose this one. I’ve been waiting for it.

Man that sounds good!

Keeping it simple and trying to capture the essence of the song can be a challenge Rope. I appreciate the positive feedback! Our goal is to for our songs to be accessible to the average CBG player.

Glad you are enjoying our eclectic selections AGP! It’s our pleasure to take you back on a stroll down memory lane!

Nice! What’s yo name? Who’s yo daddy? Whoever you are, you did a nice job of (simply) capturing all that’s going on  rhythmically in that song.

Have been enjoying your choice of songs lately Doug, I was a big Zombie's fan back in the "Days of Yore" keep 'em coming! :-)

Thanks Kale! Your observations are correct. The last line in each verse goes really high at the end, so I have to go low at the start of the line. I haven’t quite mastered the vocal transition in and out. I love the groove in the original, but I think it would take a serious time investment to figure out how to play it and sing on top of it. So I have to settle for hearing it in my head while I play.

Nicely done Doug. That looks like a hard one to sing and play.
