Cowboy Guitar (alley-oop)


Tom Atwood

 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

"Cowboy Guitar" was the first piece I listened to by alley-oop. Not sure if it was the first one he posted, but I think so. I wish I had the original song art he posted with it. A lovely cartoon of his featuring a cowboy with a big guitar. I remember thinking, when I listened, 'this guy is GOOD! And so young, too!' (Because Tom had posted a photo of himself that must have been taken 30 years ago. He has aged gracefully, but rather suddenly, while participating on MacJams.)

So - ladies and gentlemen -- I present to you alley-oop and his "Cowboy Guitar!"

Happy birthday, Tom!

I wish I could take some credit for this TT, but it is all alley-oop. I am just
correcting a mistake from a past life. Thanks for the comments!

I think that it is backhanded and way clever of you guys to make what
is meant to be, be, and regardless of a certain paranoa - This is
excellent stuff and it is meant to be heard as many times as possible.

I do hope that we're not cutting into some planned royalties that you
were expecting though, Mr. alley-oop. And I hope that all is as good
and well as it should be for you...

Very nice work showcasing the other Tom's guitar playing, Tom. I enjoyed
the original too.

Hah! No, no modulation necessary here... sounds great as is. Sounds
like it could be a brief musical interlude in a ... what? a movie with
cowboys? An exposé on the iguana? Something like that.

I like iguana movies. Always gripping. But possibly I digress?

ANYWAY, I likes it, I does (as we say here), but the only thing I'm unclear
on is who did what? Is this Mr. Oop's playing? Is this Oop n'Atwood? Is
this an Atwoodian tribute to Oop? Why doesn't Atwood have a last name
more like Oop? How come theres only one 't' in Atwood?

I guess I could be a 'poster child' for MacJams. I joined the site on New Year's Eve 2004, after several years of not making much music at all. A long dry spell. Since then, I have posted more than 50 songs here, collaborated with some wonderful arti... [see more]
