For months I didn't have the courage to post this recording on the MBH forum with so much pro's around. But I still like to know what other (and so much better) players would say about it. So this is a version of "Sundown Blues" by my wife and me. We're looking forward to your comments.

Hi SBT and Mrs SBT. Well I liked it a lot and I think you should be encouraged to post more of your songs on here. You've very obviously gone to a lot of trouble with the video production and you should be commended for it. Thanks for brightening up my day.

As far as worrying about the pros on the forum, I think you'll find them to be most encouraging and helpful. If they can hear an obvious problem they will point you in the right direction. They are a fair minded lot and very obliging. Most of the time.

Hopefully more people will be encouraged to post their videos too. We get to know people so much better when they do.

Thank you for replying, tookatooka!

Constructive criticism is of course as well appreciated. What should I do differently? Any suggestions how to improve my playing?

I really liked it. I wish I could get my wife to join along in the music festivities. I'm no pro and in fact am more a vocalist than a harp player, but you should continue to post. It was very nice. I have one question - why so much snow in the swamp? :-)

Thanks everyone!

@snakes: I don't know about that snow in the swamps. I never was there. :-| My nick name was just a result of my strong preference for swamp blues (Lazy Lester, Slim Harpo, etc) at the time I had to choose one for YouTube.
