If there’s anything in music the GBTV crowd would enjoy, this is it! Last week I uploaded a video to YouTube for a project I’m working on featuring singer-songwriter Matt Caldwell doing a cover of Merle Haggard’s “Workin’ Man Blues.” Matt did a fine job on the cover but have a closer look at his buddy Nate Barrett playing guitar with him.
At first glance it simply looks like he’s a lefty. No big deal really. But look closer. He’s playing a right-handed guitar UPSIDE DOWN! It’s pretty bizarre to watch him play so effortlessly with the strings strung in reverse order. Any guitar players in the audience will surely appreciate how completely other-worldly this looks.
Watch the video – then watch it again to make sure you are actually seeing what you think you are. Give Nate a shout-out on his video, then drink a beer in the evening and cry yourself a little working’ man blues!
