Two New Music Videos, Basket Girl, and From Me To You

February 19, 2019

Dear Readers,

Please see my youtube channel page for two new videos.
Basket Girl, is an original with Red Riding Hood overtones.
From Me To You, is the Beatle classic.

For both, I recorded the guitar separately, then sang live, to get a better mix. You will not be surprised to find there is no auto tuned vocals!
