Lyrics here, if there's any intelligibility issues...

Folks love political songs around here!

Don't worry, they don't like love songs either. ;-)

This is so groovy that I'd cheer on anything you sing, even if I didn't already agree with you about campaign finance regulations.

Anyway, the lyrics are loud and clear, and the performance is flawless. It's really a cool groove. Is that a strumstick? I'm glancing over at mine in the corner, wondering why it clearly has a defect, as it never sounded like that...

Haha! Thanks, edlundart, you're very kind. I appreciate your comment!

As far as strumstickery, one thing you might wanna take into account is that the one I'm using is a chromatic model. The more commonly seen ones are diatonic scale fretboards, patterned after the mountain dulcimer. So, if yours is a diatonic model, it'll of course be missing some of the notes!

Ah, I'll blame that, then! It certainly couldn't have anything to do with skills.............. right? But all kidding aside, I need to use that strumstick in some recordings. I can't play mine well, but it nevertheless makes some cool sounds.
