Default Hard time killing floor blues (on a flamenco guitar)

I love Skip James, but avoided his songs because I just thought I'd never be able to sing so high, but after some work, practice, and help from my wife, I could actually get there.

With time I hope my singing will improve in this style (and in general).

Filmed on a sad rainy day in Barcelona.

Thanks

Actually BarÁa refers to the football team, whereas the local slang is 'Barna' for the city

As my son in law would say, "You fricking killed it"! (That is a compliment). I think you got the voice thing down. And nice guitar work. Loved it.
