Water splashing and rhythm swinging - I dig it, folks. This pump is simply awesome, so I HAD to go back and jam some more with it! Here's another clip featuring my National Duolian and this old, very old invention called a hydraulic ram pump!! It's just freakin' cool how steady and laidback it can provide this groovy beat!!!!! The lyrics are from Son House's song: Preaching the blues.
