Story behind the song
I just celebrated 30 years of playing guitar, 27 playing slack key...woo hoo! This was the first song I heard Uncle Ray play back in the early '70s and that's why I decided to submit it.
For this track I'm playing a Nylon 6 String Takamine Guitar Hirade. The ipu effect was done by tapping on the soundboard of the same guitar.
Tuning: Taro Patch (DGDGBD)
