"The Toy Song" (musical mashup)

A friend and I created this musical collision of Chuck Berry and Tom Paxton when we were randomly paired together for an event called "Duet Roulette," where we had less than two days to come up with a song to perform. (I'm not entirely certain that this qualifies as "rock" music, but Ding-a-Ling was Chuck Berry's only Billboard #1 hit.)

We merged The Marvelous Toy and My Ding-a-Ling to create our own Toy Story, and a good time was had by all.

I'm fingerpicking on my baritone chromatic Bear Meadow, tuned AEA and capoed to CGC. My partner-in-musical-crime, folksinger/storyteller Ken Galipeau, is playing a guitar of some sort.

Enjoy! smile
