cigar box guitar

Swampfoot #OctPoWriMo

Day 5 of OctPoWriMo gives us the prompt word sharp. Many ideas danced around in my mind as I mulled this over; there are so, so many ways that we can use the word sharp or one of its synonyms. After much contemplation an idea finally stuck out – meet Swampfoot.

Processed with Snapseed.

I know a guy called Swampfoot,
a musician who’s really good.
He plays rhythm & blues,
jazz and southern gospel, too.

Though he plays a mean mouth harp
and on the banjo is quite sharp,
you just gotta know the facts:
cigar-box guitar is really his axe.

Swampfoot is actually my son-in-law, so I may be a little biased but I think he’s a really talented guy, and I know he is a good husband and father. Here are a few clips of him playing and there are many more on his channel if you enjoy these, as I hope you do!
