Josh is so good and they are so cute because they just wear t-shrts and don’t rely light shows and flashy background to perform. They just perform. Josh is a fine guitarist!! (What’s the name of that tool he has attached to the neck of his guitar?? I used to know the name and it is an unexpected name. sounds like aspidistra but that’s a flower. Do you remember??)
That’s a capo. It’s used to change the key of the guitar—one half step for each fret further from the top.
My dad used to sing that song when he was driving at night. That and Red River Valley…
It’s one of those Dad songs. My father liked to sing “When The Caissons Go Rolling Along.”
My Dad’s song was a mix(!),
of ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo’ and ‘Jeepers Creepers’!
Sometimes ‘Hey Good Looking’ came inbetween!
A great performance by THESE two, however.
I wonder what song my son will remember as his “Dad song.”
