I've said for years that it's too bad we're all so far away.  I have made such good friends here over the years, and will never get to even shake their hands...  :(

Coffee would be great, Ag.  Too bad we're so far away.  Weather is suddenly getting lots better here, snow and ice and those 3ft banks should be melting down soon...

Still shoveling, Ag.  These last 3 weeks have been the worst of the winter, with a dozen other problems tossed in.  I could whine about it for hours...  :P

I've been so preoccupied with everything going wrong around here for the last week I hadn't even noticed, RJ.  I bet White caught it...

oops, I was just reading the text message that I copied into my previous 'shout' and realized my buddy used some colorful language.   :o  

I see someone already corrected it for me.  Sorry!!  :-[

I've been working on how to improvise and just found this playlist with a metric crap-ton of guitar backing tracks. Thought I'd share.

Hey Hey, power back (for now).  But still snowing and blowing.

Wonder if Canada is getting any of this, or is it just our little treat?  :P

Well, heavy snow and 50mph winds with gusting.  Lost power about 6-7 hours ago.  Waited till it was 45 in the house to see if it would come back on before going out and starting the generator.  Hope it comes back on sometime tonight...

Interesting thing about a song I'm working on...
« on: August 23, 2017, 01:28:12 PM »
I'm in the midst of finalizing a song that I call "Mile markers" but I'm experiencing an interesting phenomenon.  The idea came from driving from Joplin, Missouri to Springfield, Missouri in a rental car.  Each verse describes a small part of the country side at each mile marker and the chorus asks the question of what are we missing as the mile markers pass us by.

What I find so interesting is not the verses that are in the songs but the millions of verses that aren't in the song.  I find that as I sing the song or am just driving, I'm thinking more about the stories that go with what I see around me.

Anyway, I know we all frame songs in our own experiences but this is the first time I've written a song that makes ME think of other things.  pretty weird...

That should mean it's a hit....  ~:)
Making that connection is what it's all about :)

Maybe you can somehow incorporate that connection towards other things in your song? :D
