Comments on Gumbo's stuff

Sassy Nation version! Sister Savage and Mr Sandbags collaborated on the original of this wonderful heartbreaker of a song. I've been playing it on the guitar the last few days and it always seemed to come out with a grittier tone, so i asked…read more

good voice, guitar and tune.

Written today. recorded on an iMac with the internal mic and no headphones (!) so it's probably going to be muddy as hell, but that feels about right for now. LYRIC: Fill up the glass, Bartender Ply your art Quench the fire in here, now…read more

@Crossroads

@jackmerlot: Hello? I think I’m in the right place, but there is nobody around right now?
@raven: Caw! Never-more.
@jackmerlot: Well a fat lot of good you are. Can you say anything else, or are you one of those greasy, diseased birds with no conscience?
@raven: Kra-Kaw! Never-more…never-mind…he’s here!
@mingus: And I suppose you’re wondering what you’d do, for a lifetime subscription to Ernie Ball’s Bass Strings of the Month club, & a signed copy of the Black Saint & the Sinner Lady?
@jackmerlot: Hey, wait a minute. A guy that kinda looked like you gave me this card. pulls out business card, printed on heavy bond stock with slightly raised monogram letterpress printed on it
@mingus: Ah, uh, yeah. I mean, Ah Um.
@raven: Kraaaakkow! RED-RUM!
@jackmerlot: Hey, thanks a lot for meeting me, but you’re not actually the guy I meant to meet here.
@woodyguthrie: May I help you?

He’s standing in a State Fair Kissing Booth about 20 yards from @crossroads.

Do you wish to trade business cards with Woody Guthrie? ( y/n )

Cave Street posted a track recently, their contribution to the Woody Guthrie Project, organised by Akron Family. http://akronfamily.com/woodyproject/W.G.A..html I wanted to take a shot at this too, so here's my demo. It was really just half…read more

Aww, man. My cousin’s youngest just turned one; his name is Arlo. I never axed my cousin if they named him after Arlo Guthrie, but I guess in the back of my mind I always assumed they probably considered that when they named him.

“This Machine Kills… Fascists.” written in Sharpie marker on Woody Guthrie’s acoustic guitar.

Final version Every so often when i'm thinking of something else a western song pops up as if there is a soundtrack to a movie running in the back of my head. I might have to gather em all up into a playlist some day. track nine, or at least…

Love the minor / finished triad movements

I'm finally happy with this track - v1 was too much of a nothing song and it's been bugging me all the way to the last night of the challenge. 1 more to mix

Creaky ol’ Wurlitzer warm & inviting

This was an RPM track back in the day, and I've been playing it various ways to find a setting for it within the band repertoire. This doesn't sound much like our band would do it but it came out nicely, so i thought i'd share it.
World War Nine said

Sounds a little Dylanesque, love it.

Final version Day 28 Anyone else still writing songs? this is the result of trying to listen to too many mixes in one day. Sometimes it's just easier to record something else.

Surprising how one song can be played in many different ways and still retain it’s individuality.

Hey Stu, people are asking if you’re gonna be RPM-ing this year. Hope so!

Those stark Moonlit nights have something of a reputation, but there are other things lurking in the moonlight.

All those guest comments from the last few years and from me. So I won’t add to them…apart from to say, I agree with Guest.

I tell my students to keep things simple—couple o’ chords, not to many notes, and just tell a good story. That’s what makes a best songs. This fits that definition.

I love pure folk tunes like this. Nice work.

A happy song about being left by your no-good spouse. There's a word for the attitude in this song but I can't think of it right now ... this is now a tidied up version 18/3/09

a lot of joy here!

very good man

This was written and recorded on 19th September 05 aka International Talk Like A Pirate Day 2005 ( a wet afternoon as I recall) and is posted here so you start to get the hint.

Aye matey!

This is my 2007 Pirate Day song, written and recorded September 19th 2007. I like the innuendo, but maybe it's too subtle - nobody else seems to notice ;~)

Brilliant!

Just love this song……….

this is the slightly sparkly version of my version of Moschell's "Boxes and Strings" from his 'Circus of Freaks and Fools' RPM Challenge CD. I recorded it as a video last night and redid it in the studio (unfinished sauna) today.
