We wanted to play the blues, so we got some stuff we recorded that's almost a blues and it's almost a waltz - which I think would be nice for y'all to learn about... Don't ever say "I can't do something because I don't have this..." I learned to play fiddle on a cigar box - Canray Fontenot

Sorry to hear it Mr.OMuck, but rest assured we'll listen to your hard times, anytime!
We can relate.

That was real good, Phil. What a difference between someone trying to play a blues & someone playing the blues.

Am I hearing a Son House influence in that fine guitar playing?

Yeah, unfortunately its from the heart. Its a good reminder for me as to why the thematic material of the Blues is so persistent. We (I) get ourselves involved with someone, full of blind courage, recklessness and idiot hope, and whether its a 25 year marriage or a 6 month affair, it hurts like hell when its over. The other side of the coin is that writing and singing that song REALLY helped me feel better! What strange hoodoo is THAT? But its absolutely true that my emergence from the pit of despair started to happen as a result of doing that song, another indicator of why the subject and this music is so prevalent.
By the way as outlined in most Blues of this type, my artist's life with its attending lack of MONEY is usually the reason things fall apart. "Now women and Money they go hand in hand...etc. etc and so forth...some things never change.

I just quit my job, last day is tomorrow, I think I'll become an artist!

Cheryl says I can take a month off. Then it's "back to work, Buster..."
