Video: "That's Enough For Me" Performed on a 1943 Gibson Banner L-50

Here I'd like to share a new song on a very classic guitar.

"That’s Enough For Me" comes with a driving Travis picking guitar part which is central to the song.

The song is in swing time with a few cheeky little bends and pattern shifts that make it a bit of a right hand tangle.

Lyrically the song is about embracing your close surroundings and where/who you are. A running theme on my album Tourist In My Own Backyard.

For this track have fashioned me with a beautiful 1943 Gibson Banner L-50, Maple Body, Spruce Top. A seldom seen model from the banner era of Gibson, crisp, sharp attack, boxy, Traveling Wilburys.

I liked this guitar so much I have since got myself a slightly later 1953 model. This guitar was like liquid to play. I loved the nostalgic character, somewhere between jazz and country, which works perfectly for this track. Any fiddly parts where made light work by an action that any modern guitar would struggle to achieve.
