ah - some honesty
Great little entertaining and catchy track, sounds a lot like the Memphis Jug Band. Nice one.

blast
from the past. How do you record in a boxcar? I love the banjo and the vocals!

I hear you coming along in harmonica. Something that someone told me that I think might also apply to you is to deepen your embouchure so that the harp will sound richer. Put it against your teeth, open your mouth a little bit more. It'll take a little bit more control to bend notes, but ultimately it will be worth it. I think you might have been playing in the wrong key, but it works for this song -- the little bit of discordance actually makes it better.

Banjo solo! Love it!

I keep plugging
away...I think that the harp is essentially the sound of a cheap product .....it was only about 8 bucks ,compared to the other two which I have not used in a tune yet...they are Hohner ,ones a marine Band (D)the other a Silver Star(A) and they do they sound better..
thanks for dropping in and the advice.
