not our pick   our pick   
Description: Taking a big risk here.
This one's very raw, and I'm talking right from my head, right from a fourtrack portastuder on batteries and right from a guitar literally worth 4 dollars. I used a black piano key for a new saddle when I decided I didn't like the plastic one, and glued a bunch of pieces of cardboard underneath til I got the intonation just right, etc.


Oh ps: You might be wondering why I decided to share something so raw.

Happy birthday Pete Seeger, hero to many, most notably this second I'll say hero to me...
