"Move It On Over" 5 string slide Cigar Box Guitar Mark Stowe

Just messing around with the old Hank Williams song "Move It On Over".
Some people may be more familiar with the George Thorogood cover version from the late 1970s.
What I'm doing here is a lot more laid back county sounding then what George Thorogood did with the song, however I really am playing it more in his style with the slide guitar and blue riffs.
The Cigar Box Guitar I'm playing is a five string thing tuned to open G (G-D-G-b-d). The small size makes it rather difficult to play.
Instead of making the neck myself, I cheated when building this guitar by taking a beaten up neck from a broken child sized guitar and attaching it to the Cigar Box body.
