I Dug Up a Diamond - SOTW #17

Week 17! Time is a-flyin' ain't it?

This week I bring you a really nice ditty from the collaboration album between Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris. "I Dug Up a Diamond" appears on their 2006 duet All the Road Running. It's a fantastic album by two songwriting giants. Knopfler is one of my favorite guitar players, and Harris has a voice that just freezes my spine. Powerful stuff, I hope I did at least a little justice to this one.

I went with a pretty simple song this week. With the holiday weekend and a lot of things going on with school I figured I'd keep it light. I'm hoping to really hit one solid next week. But for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy my cover with Mr. Frog. Playing this on my Taylor 716ce-LTD and recorded on my Droid X. All the usual stuff.

Thanks for watching!

Bel isi,

PS - Apparently I received a text or email at about 3:30 in this video. The camera picked up the vibration, and if you listen close enough you can hear "DROID" as well. I don't know how I missed it initially, and I can't just edit it out without redoing the whole song. But I'm already working on next week's edition...
