Great job and personal touch! I love the drop D too. I don't do much drop D anymore since I got rid of my Martins. Something just isn't right for me on the Gibson for drop D. My D28 sounded like thunder in drop D. Ever since that the Gibson just never sounded right in it.

Thanks Em7 for putting the idea of that one in my head. I hadn't played it for a couple of years and never in drop D.

Trvlr kind of you to give that one "arrangement" status, glad you liked it.

JR, yea the drop D is nice...but if playing live I wouldn't do two songs in a row as that low D drone is pretty overpowering tending to make songs sound a bit the same.
I occasionally muck around in double drop D but the the only thing I play properly is B.D's Hollis Brown.

Cheers

That's a really good rendition of the song. Nicely played. Ramblin' Jack Eliot does a pretty cool version too, also in Drop D.

Thanks MP. I think I came across a clip of R J Elliott recently and was encouraged to see he was a pinky planter too!
