So here’s to all the hard chargers who graduated CMCR with me on Sunday, fun times gents! And of course, one night away from “da hooches” and my cough is already disappearing, go figure. So anyway, Since I’ve got so much stuff on youtube and soundcloud, I figured I’d cherry pick a few videos and recordings that y’all would probably enjoy. If you like ’em be sure to share ’em with your friends! And if ya got any good videos of me picking and grinning be sure to send me a link. Thanks gents, it was a pleasure training with y’all, ‘rah, best of luck!
I will be found playing guitar and singing songs on their impromptu stage. In other news, I got to play part of my song “Three Young and Lovely Mormon Ladies” to two young and lovely Mormon Ladies out missionarying about this morning at the Warsaw Flea-market. Not sure how the verses I sang went over, but I believe they gathered I’d be a lost cause as a Latter Day Saint. Here’s the chorus from the second verse,
“Well, I said, ‘Won’t you marry me!
They said, ‘What? Do you mean all three?’
‘Well, I thought you taught polygamy?’
‘No, not in quite a while!
And besides, you must be baptized first.’
Well I said, ‘Now, girls, I’m free of that curse!
I was baptized once in the Holy Church,
And it doesn’t go out of style!’
I had a lot of fun playing Paul Willson’s Songwriter Showcase at The Camel last night. Thanks to everyone who came out, I appreciate seeing y’all! And thanks for the great picture Amy, it turned out pretty cool!
On June 30th last year, 19 men from the Granite Mountain Hotshot wildfire crew died while fighting the Yarnell Hill fire. While the news is often full of stories of violence and tragedy, rarely do we hear stories of courage, sacrifice and commitment. I thought it was important that their story be told and not forgotten and I hope this song that I’ve written can contribute in some small way to keeping their memory alive. Here is the song, Yarnell Hill.
I’m going to be playing a couple of sets over at Northern Neck Burger Co. this Saturday, April 12, from 7 to 9 or so. If folks are still there and the tip jar ain’t full I might just keep picking till they close at ten. Regardless, it’ll be a fun time and a great way to spend a Saturday evening!
