MY MOM JUST HEARD IT!!!
Hey my mom just got done listening to the song and she loves it!!!! Just wanted to let you know that you have a talent like an origianl!!! Yes! You better believe it, and you better tell me when you have another song on! My mom listens to nothing but the beatles, but she really enjoyed this song as much as I did! I was really surprised!

Individually and together....
just all totally fine performances. Those chord
changes to the minor... nice touch. And the steady
banjo and mando pickin' just dream you along
with that fiddle as the letter is written. Also, I gotta
say your harmonies are so tight and right on. The
whole song is a "bluegrass special."

Thank you kindly. The vocals are fun on this one, something of a change up for
me. Glad you get a kick out of it all. Sometimes it falls together nice.

wow
Its been fun sharing tunes this way. I have such fun playing the stuff, light as it
is, but always thought the live experience was the only worth it thing. I
appreciate greatly your time in listening to it, the over-the-airwaves enjoyment.
Thank you.

that was cool
i actually liked this song it was like old western
Cameron said 4639 days ago (September 14th, 2005)
very nice as usual
Your music never fails to please, it always puts a smile on
my face -- even this "bluegrass blues" number!

There's just something special and uplifting about this
kind of music, it's so uniquely American. Even folks who
aren't "into" bluegrass or country music can relate to this
on some level (whether they admit it or not -- HA!)

As usual, the combination of instruments here is classic,
offering a very well-balanced accompaniment to the
vocals.

The vocals have the just right amount of "twang" to cut
through the instrumental background. I like the way the
voices rise and fall in the melody, with just the right
amount of expressiveness.

Very pleasant listening. Thanks again for posting!

nice bluegrass
This is beautiful...normally I don't go out of my way to listen
to bluegrass, but every time I hear it I'm in love with the style.

One would think that I'd learn my lesson. Marking this one
a favorite.
