Here’s my go at Jeffrey Foucault song stripping cane

https://youtu.be/u4W8ovZ7Pvk

Feel free to critique and hurl abuse

Martin sp strings have sounded great but they’re dyign on me now as Martin strings tend to do unfortunately
I did like them but are getting ‘stiff’ ? For want of a better word

Wasn’t aware of J Foucault, but I’m a fan of your cover. Guitar sounds really good - to me, that p’up does the guitar justice. Didn’t mind the springs being ‘stiff’, I liked the sound
'18 Gibson J45, vintage
'86 Guild D25
'00 Fender Strat (American Standard)
'90 Fender Strat (Korea, bought in an open market in Korea... yeah it might be real)
'68 Gibson SG
'17 Several 3 String CBGs

Great sounding guitar. Strings are fine. Your picking and singing are enviable!

Grunt that was flipping fantastic. I’ve heard you mention this artist before, but haven’t had the chance to explore. Great tune, and a great raw performance. Really how it’s done. Miss these posts. Keith you need to get back in the game too man...

Thanks gents

And Sal ...
have a listen to him. You’d like it a lot
I like playing his stuff but I don’t come close to doing t justice. He’s got a voice on him. Could sing the phone book

I really enjoyed that! Have you tried John Pearse pure nickel acoustic strings on that guitar yet? My J45HC works really well with them, and our right hand approaches are similar enough that I think you might really like them. I still think the J45 Historic Collection is an underrated treasure and every time I play mine I am just so grateful to have it. Yours sounds lovely and is the essential accompanist's instrument.

Cool.
Thanks for the kind words

Never tried nickel strings. I will add them to the mental list for next purchase
Have had John pearse strings before but they were just 80/20’s or Pb , can’t remember now. They were good strings but not any better than the regular daddarrios or Gibson strings and had an extra couple of £’s . Couldn’t see the extra money in them

I got the SP martins under Jinder’s recommendation and was well impressed when I put them on. But the reason I never buy Martin strings is they just seem to die , suddenly .. these did the same. No warning , like a zippo lighter. Fantastic then all of a sudden - gone

When you can play and sing like that, you can overlook the smaller things.

Oh I totally knew what you meant and how you meant it 👍

Just thought I’d say the reason for no cover
I never think about it but maybe I should get little screws and put it back on

I knew you were joking 🙃. I was giving Stu extra kudos for a brilliantly done cover.

A cover, without a cover?
To cover, or not to cover. That is the question.
