My take on the “Hank Williams” tune “Your Cheatin’ Heart”, largely based on a “Glen Watt” tutorial from some 4 or 5 yrs back! :-)

Yep your dead right Cobba I’d rather be building CBGs than underpinning the old farm house we are restoring I’m lucky I’ve got my good health and strong work ethics to fall back on like my Dad said to me you can sleep in your box when it all over till then take a big bite and chew like the clappers ....... I’ve been loving your videos Allan to see and hear your hard work keeps my smile on my dial .

"Thanks Bones", It's a pity that "Dirty Work Word" gets in the way of doing the other things in life we'd rather be doing, but!, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, while he's still young and healthy, I don't know if it's just me or not, but for me, it does take a bit a time and effort to learn and put together a Video, something I've been very slack about doing in the years gone by, I'm enjoying the playing instead of building Gits at the moment, not sure how long I can last, been over a month since I finished my last build, anyway I consider both as not being classed as "Work"

Nice one Cobba I wish I had the time to get some videos together , just got no time through the day and no energy at night after working like a dog .

"Thanks Nancy Kat", No singing by me in my Vids', why spoil a good tune with my non-existent vocals, Luv the Kittyy's hat, I do have a similar coloured one, should have worn that  one :-D

"Thanks Poorness and Danny Boy" for those kind and encouraging comments, very much appreciated,  :-)  :-)

"Thanks Dave" for the Clean & Clear Comment. 

And also many thanks for the alerting me to the fact that you could only hear it in one side of your earphone, I just checked it, and the previous Rollin' n Tumblin" post, on my earphones, and your right!, I too could only hear sound in one earphone on both of them, the reason being I guess is that on those last 2 Vids, I placed a Mike in front of the Amp and plugged it directly into my "Zoom Q2n Handy Video Recorder", that I use.

I'm not all that tech savvy with how these are supposed to things work, but as you suggest, it must result in it being recorded in Mono, "Thanks again Dave!", and I can assure You I won't be using that method again! :-D

"Thanks UJ", It's been a month now since my last build, must be a record,  I've been playing around with bits and pieces of lots of different song riffs over the years, but have never spent much time concentrating on the whole tune, until recently, which I've enjoyed doing, and your right!, it does take a bit of time and effort, and the end result is worth it,  I usually steal bits and pieces of other How to Vids, and adapt them to my own "All Slide Style", but this one was nearly all Glen's Tutorial.

And as you know I also like the "Grungy Noisy" side to CBG's, so will try and alternate between the Clean and Dirty Tunes in the future, there will be more to come!, as it has been a bit more comfortable playing some of my many builds inside in front of the Fan, than building in the "Hot Tin Work Shed", I try and use a different build for each Video, but not sure if I can get through the 300 odd I still have :-D
