The guitar is the star namely EKO in my version of this song originally by Free recorded in 1972 , featuring Elmar Zeilhofer's amazing flatpup!
A little reverb on the lead guitar, otherwise no other special effects used.

Guitars - EKO, Epiphone SG Bass.
Vocals - Slowpaw Steve T.

Steve Trowbridge May 2011

Available in 24 bit mono on new "Slowpaw Blues" CD, PM me for details! (-:

thank you Ender ! i was pretty much a newbie when i made this, i found it very helpful to have slow cover songs to practice on and play, especially when recording, making vids playing live for the first time! (-:

Hi Steve, I´m a newbie here and for now  I dont have a CBG. So I took my acoustic,

tuned it to open G and played with you - really nice. Free is always good to hear.

cheers Elmar your wonder flatpup is the biz! (-:

sorry about my scruffy trousers, not normally like this,   i had spent the morning clearing out the bottom of a friend's garden pond, and thought i looked like a rather weary traveller...though i think it works..! (-;
