I love this tune. Do you? I haven't really seen 'Weeds', the TV show in which it's featured. Any good?

I love this tune. Do you? I haven't really seen 'Weeds', the TV show in which it's featured. Any good?I don't know the show, but I've always loved this song - from the early 60's - written, I'm pretty sure by Tom Paxton.

Nice job in this one Carl and a sweet clip to accompany it mate. Lesley, the song was written by Malvina Reynolds in 1962. But was sure covered by Tom Paxton, Pete Seeger and just about every other folkie from the 1960's and beyond. Walk Off The Earth just did an awesome version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7_lx5mjaxQ) of it too...

Nice cover! You're getting a great sound with that mic. What kind is it?

Cheers! It's a Rode mic, only a cheap one, but it does a bloody good job doesn't it?

Right on. Yeah, it sound really great! I used to have a Rode NT1000. After dropping it... well, quite a few time, it died. It was a little TOO good for vocals though- too crispy clear. Now I've been using an Audio-Technica AT2020... It works well for both uke and vox. Sorry to geek out on ya'!
