This week has been a wild ride. I tried and I stumbled. Sometimes it felt as if I was falling into a deep hole. I saw your hand and I grabbed it and we fell together. Then we were flying. Thank you.
I often wonder. Does Robot feel sad? Does Robot get down when they can’t accomplish the thing they were designed to do? Sometimes I feel like an emotional robot, doing my best to act out my code. Is it just me? Are there robots living among us?
P³ers sent me a request, and I learn it and record it right there at my favorite coffee joint. No fuss. One take. Please pardon my wonky guitar playin’. This is fun, right?
As you may or may not know, I found an awesome secret coffee shop. It is run by the the nicest folks. I’ll go in there and check my emails and Facebook and the Twitters. Some people request songs. I learn ’em real quick and make a videos. Well, my friend Toby Huss happened to come by this day and we sang a song. I call them Coffee Shop Covers.
You wanted this Switcharoo, you got it! The Who and Elton John and Johnny Cash. 3 great tastes that taste great together. I even threw in a bit of Crescent City Blues as a little lagniappe. That’s the song Folsom Prison Blues was derived from. It was written by Gordon Jenkins and sung by Beverly Mahr before J. Cash picked it up and made it his very own. Can you name the other influences on this?
Here’s a tune from John Lennon’s “Dylan” phase. I like singing at this place. I thought the other folks at my coffee spot were gonna join in on the “HEYS” but they just went about their business. I hope they let me keep doing this. Can you spot Tim?
Tom Waits music is near and dear to me and this is one of my favorites. I asked Sweet Dick to join me on tack piano which clearly had been drinking. I like Rich’s duct tape bowler hat and crimson waist coat.
This incredible song was written by Will Callery. Recorded by Willie Nelson for his Red Headed Stranger epic. I love performing and recording in nature. It’s like I’m inside of a painting. Surrounded by swirly, velvety art. I hope ya likey,
Holy Moly, I had a lot of requests for this one (most of them from the gifted barista Reggie). I like an iced coffee on a hot day. I also like to sing and I like to doodle. Doodlin’ away! Do you doodle?
