‘Divine Justice Coming Down’ is an honest and confronting account of the Global Financial Crisis. We see many parallels here between the GFC and the 1929 Great Depression.
‘The Free Train Agreement
‘ about the things in life which are free and uncontrolled by governments and corporations. Get On Board.
‘Arrivals & Departures
‘ paints a beautiful picture of the cycle of human life. People arriving and departing the planet.
‘Dead Catz Can Bounce’
Rich Man Poor Man.  Losing your money’s bad but losing your soul is worse.

A tuition video featuring Pay Day by Mississippi John Hurt and played by Brother John Morris. It is in the alternating bass fingerpicking style. Pay Day is in open D tuning (DADF#AD). The bass in this song alternates constantly between the 6th and the 4th strings. There are no chord changes. This piece is a good example of the power and beauty in the simplicity of a melody supported by a D drone.
