Here's a little tune I wrote a few years ago. I reworked it sort of in the style of Carl Smith with some twin guitars. I tried jumping between the C6 and E9 necks.

Thanks for watching!

That’s a beautiful Clinesmith! That sounds good...very Ernest Tubb-like I think. However, I think you should’ve worn different hats for each instrument..

On that last video you did, one of my buddies said “He can’t play drums?” Good work again my friend.

Hahaha! Well, that's about the extent of my drumming abilities. I don't think anyone is ever going to mistake me for a real drummer or bass player. Laughing

Great playing, really swings. Impressive quiver on the top row, beautiful Collings and Gibson.

Can i ask what's the tuning on 3rd neck?

Thanks.

Thanks!! I've never fully settled on a tuning for the 3rd neck. I had it open G for a while, I've had it A6, and it's currently in the Don Helms "E6" (that seems the easiest for me to wrap my head around on the fly).

Wow. That's great all around! Nice playing, singing & picking. I don't know which guitar I want more, the Clinesmith or the 295.
