Hi Guys, fyi Lawson, on your Son House lyrics on your sig, there was no Tin Can.....

It was Kid Gal.... in other words his gal on the side.

"I Never thought I loved, more than 4 women in my life,
My mother my sister, my kid gal and my wife."

4 womens...... gotta love the Son!

Also, curious but why don't you guys like the tailpiece on the Triolian? It's nickel plated brass not chrome.
That's what every original National had on them, why does this not look right? Tooo shiny maybe?

Hope all's well. Len

I think that guys is making too big a deal out of the tail piece. Take it off and paint it if it's that bothersome. I think otherwise, that is that it would look odd if it was the same color as the guitar. It adds a nice contrast I think.

Listen to the second time he sings the same verse, and listen for the word "gal". Kid is a little harder to hear, as he says KIDGAL quick. Forget the KId, just listen for GAL and you will hear its not CAN. IT's at about 2:01 on that vid.

No biggie, I've sung many a wrong verse playing pre war blues. He's also talking about 4 women, how does a tin can fit in there?

I really like this one btw, he doesn't add that verse, but the setting is so informal.

I just thought tin can as in his resonator. But it is quite hard to make out some of what he is singing.
