    "My Walking Stick"

    Here's another performance by Irish Folksinger Freddie White. I like his arrangement of this old Irving Berlin song from the movie "Alexander's Ragtime Band". He is playing his 'hog topped D-25 (as identified by Westerly Wood). It is apparently a favorite axe of his, because it is featured in a lot of his videos. On his website, there is a photo of him playing the guitar in the early 70's.

    Excellent!

    <shameless plug> My cousin Woody Pines does a fair (if a bit faster) version of this song, too.

    I really enjoyed that, Sandy! Thanks for posting. That is a swingin' li'l combo! I dig the cat playing the Charlie Christian ES 150 guitar.

    That's my friend Brad Tucker. He's no longer playing with my cousin, and is back in Martha's Vineyard making insane high end furniture. Very talented guy, and a killer upright bass player too.
