new song > You’re The One

up next is a song with some difficulties inherent on multiple levels…let me start from the beginning… a few months ago I ordered this Rogue combo pack on a whim, got it – tuned the guitar to open G, grabbed a glass slide, and slid into this song almost on the first few strums. I

new tune > lookit that

“lookit that”, so yeah – this was actually before “oh my my” (posted some hours ago) by some hours, but I’ve made an executive decision to post more rather than hoard. To share is good – right? So I am sharing. I mean, if you think about it, in the grand scheme of things, throughout
