Live Video / Caledonia
I just stuck the camera on a table in front pf the band, Sorry for not a full band view. I thought it might be cool to post something that is totally improvised and on the spur of the moment. I have only played this song a couple times but it lends itself to some fun picking.It was late and we were all partying and having a good time.
