I havne't been posting my videos much anymore...feel like I'm suffocating the soundoff board here and at another site I visit too, so I'm holding off some. But, then, since I have no gigs, no jams that I go to, no friends within 200 miles that play with me...I get all excited making youtubes and then watch them slip down into I guess is ok anyway. But I've been making mostly fiddling youtubes and then figured I better get a guitar picking one in from the old days...the kinda stuff I used to sit around in the hills and play with lots of people around a fire with kids and dogs running at our feet. I had only one Fender guitar, no money for other instruments...borrowed a few once in a while, but that was it...we all felt lucky if we just had all our strings, back then.  Anyway, something made me think of this one the other day, so first chance I got I took the old Alvarez guitar...somebody had given it to my son-in-law...he held onto it for years and then decided it took up too much space and he wasn't ever gonna play it...gave it to me.  I love that's perfect for bare fingered picking...mellow, mellow, mellow. Very thumpy, bassy, little sustain, which, in my view, makes it perfect for this type of song.  I don't know if I did a good job setting up the mic for it...not very good at all that technical stuff.

That was refreshing, thank you. Obviously I’m here because I love fiddling but we do have a few characters who kind of swamp the videos with their playing, good, bad or whatever. Nice change of pace and tone.

Thanks, guys. I've been putting a lot of fiddle tunes on my youtube channel lately and thought it was time for something from the guitar.
