write me a few of your lines en isla negra

Here´s a cover from Fred Mc Dowell´s blues ¨Write me a few of your lines¨ I recorded this in a place called Isla Negra, a small town by the coast in Chile. Played on Henry´s Guitar, a three string cbg I made for my brother. It features nails instead of frets. The ambience you listen is the pacific ocean.

Very nice soulful vocals and sliding all the blues out of that guitar. Ocean ambience a plus!

"Ditto Uncle John's Comments"   :-)

Thank´s Uncle John!

Yes It´s a small guitar but well done, with that old sound, just wood and nails, plus bottle neck slide! Three stringers are fun to play and don´t require that much string tension, I think the sound comes out of that fact.

That is some good stuff.  That git has big unplugged sound and good looks.
