Yes, he's good
Steel Rail Blues always makes me smile no matter who sings it.

I think he's good on the guitar. I like the A.P. song very much, too.

good job....and i see you took my advice and moved the camera at least 4" closer so we could see even better, lol

how about going back to youtube friendly 4:3 format (ie. lose the letter box) and sneak up a bit on this fine talent?

Loved them. Great renditions. So it seems that GL music is going to last for another 50 years or more..... I am 54 years old ...this guy looks younger... I know a girl, 24 years old that does Song for a Winters Night.... I am going to see if I can get here video of it...It would be great to encourage young people to 'get ' this music. I know they do...but just help in getting them heard.

Wow! Very good on "Carefree Highway". I will find his channel and subscribe to it.
Very interesting artist to watch and listen to.

Thanks, lune

Just wanted to add that you should go and watch his cover of "Don't Think Twice".
It is very good

well, then he needs to tackle a guitar version of Lightfoot's Nous Vivons Ensemble

this S+G one was fun watching the all the riffin ...i like the camera/mic position for Sound of Silence best - the mic picks up guitar and vocal best when he is facing it
