Lyrics are on the music page

Hey Tom,

I liked this a lot. As so many Blues song sound much alike which is standard for that genre, you had a few areas that were fairly unique and refreshing. You sang it very well, but I would love to hear a classic blues singer attack this one--it could be cool. There were some places where the lyrics weren't flowing perhaps perfectly--but may just need small lyric tweak or a pause here or there with verbal delivery. A song like this would be sang differently by different singers as well, which is also cool. Nice job, definitely a song that I could listen to over and over again!

steady-eddie.

This has kind of a Steely Dan thing going for it. Cool relaxing tune. Really enjoyed it!

Tom, I like me some blues, with heavy lead guitar, WAH, slide, harmonica, etc., but this one is different and more understated which accents the lyrics a bit more. Interesting approach and I enjoyed it!! :)))) scotty

Mike,
Thanks so much...

Richard,
Nice red, ya'll got em there.

Yeah I like the blues the way you do...don't know where this chord pattern came from...song may have it's roots in "down by the river" they all come from somewhere smile Thanks for the comments and keep fishin.

First off, I don't like the blues much as it is mostly the same and frankly, bores me. This is different. Yeah it has the blues structure as does old Rock'n'Roll but the chordal patterns you're playing are compelling and different. I really enjoyed listening to this one, Tom. Very nice indeed.

Stevie

Stevie,

Yeah I know what you mean...I'm kinda fond of blues but after about 30 minutes of it I've had enough smile

Been listening to your work but havn't caught up on posting yet...I relly like what you are doing...will get out to more of them...I really liked Damascus Road.

Eddie and I have that in common smile

Great to hear it over headphones again though - normally it's over the speakers in my truck smile

Still dig it, Tom.

I really enjoyed this. I am much more a fan of soft relaxing blues songs, like this one. It has kind of a Still Got the Blues feel by Gary Moore. Really enjoyed this. Nice work.

Very nice Tom.
What Stevie says is true for me too. This is one of the better ones.
Clapton would love it.
Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.
