Punkgrass? Garage-ized alt.contry? Something like that. It's live, from my old band, Farmageddon. I'm just the electric guitar player who cooked up an arrangement for this classic once-acoustic bluegrass tune; I never heard the tune done by anyone else until after I left the band.

Song authorship is in question. It's almost always given to Ralph Stanley, who recorded it in the '50s. But there's a 1920-something recording out there by Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers. True authorship, I think, is "trad./unknown."

Recorded live and lo-fi (internal camcorder mic) by Farmageddon in 2004 with the same lineup as "Port Authority" and "Crimson Sunset," but no keys. (I'm on Telecaster and backing cow-being-mutilated vocals.)

NOTE: On Aug. 30, 2007, bassist FarmerMark finally joined iComps.

I personally dug on the light show, though the laser beams were a bit over the top...

Seriously though, a real fun song and cool as all get out chicken scratchpicking lead guitar work! Looks like you and the lads had a great time.

Hey Bob this one is really cookin' man. Love the whole thing, even the cheesy camera mic worked on this one.
Hitting some great licks on the strat. (I think that what it is your playing there)
Fantastic video man, I love it. Brings back some really old memories for me.

Take care

Ed

Thanks everybody! About my guitar: I was playing the Telecaster, which I got rid of. Sounds great on these lo-fi recordings but there were dead spots in the sustain, particularly the B string... never could get rid of that problem. This was the one year in the 70s in which Fender ran the strings through the body instead of the usual surface-mounted saddles.

For the record, Scowden IS my father... in that sort of Spaghetti Western way, where he's the gunslinger and I'm the wide-eyed apprentice who glamorizes the Wild West and then we recruit thge band of Mexicans to rescue the village from the dastardly horse barron. OR not. And thank you, Mr. Scowden!

About us getting together to jam in person, this Web calculator puts the Washington D.C. area as our geographic midpoint. See you there in 10 hours... have guitar, will travel!

Hey Bob, did anyone ever tell you your voice
has a tinge of Dwight Yoakam to it?
I enjoyed this very much! I wish it could've
been zoomed in a bit though. Great job...:}
