I bought a new acoustic guitar recently, and this is me messing about with it. I didn't get everything right with the solos and the timing, but this was easily the best take, and definitely the one in which I had the most fun. One thing I like about including acoustic songs like this as weekly tracks is just how much it requires focused practice. So apologies in advance, but there will likely be more humming and whistling before the year is out. smile

That's one funky blues riff there. It's a shame the hum is not more discernible. Let's get some howlin' wolf out of you and let's get you on the harmonica! smile Cool one.

This is some real nice bluesy stuff! Love the humming accompanying the track, makes it seem like we're there during the creation process.

I love this! So nice guitar playing and fun to listen. I think also that would be nice if the humming is louder or if there are lyrics, it is a good melody!

Sorry for this, I have no idea, what happened. Great song, very nice and smooth strumming.

I love weekly beats because very often people will surprise you with different styles and skill sets! I really enjoyed this one, enjoy the new guitar smile

Yo, that's smooth. I'd be down with more of these.

I like the "hum your heart out" tag. Another great track. Which guitar did you buy?
The hum-strum-issling songs are relaxing, calm, and nice, easy listens.

Ah man, I'm so jealous. Wish I could play the blues like this! Rad rhythmic playing and the vocals/humming are really nice accompaniment. Sweeeet!

This is so much fun to listen to, the guitar is fantastic. The humming / live vibe is so sweet, I'm definitely up for more of this!

Yeah man, very cool.  Nice you hear you playing the guitar again.

Thanks for the kind words, man. The humming is the most embarrassing part haha

Hopefully with a little practice I'll get a little more confident and start singing/humming a little louder.

I bought a Japanese Morris brand guitar. They're designed for fingerpicking and this particular one was easy on my fingers, which was a bonus along with the general sound of it.

Basic bluesy stuff is much easier than you think (Unless you go deep, as with all things haha). Whole-heartedly recommend playing around with it!

Thanks so much! Maybe I'll upgrade from just recording into my phone, too.

Was good to play it, too. Has been way too long.

It's cool tracks like this that make me wish I could play guitar smile  Enjoyed the humming and blues feel. Def could listen to more of these.
