Cool tune Allan! Don't feel intimidated by the talent here! We're as friendly a bunch as you'll find anywhere. You just happened to listen to one of Danny Bloodworth's posts first... heck, no one can hold a candle to that platinum tongue turkey!

That was awesome, Allan. Great little country tune.
I did think at 3:47 it came in a bit long. And perhaps you may lose one or two of the "My Home Towns" at around 3:02...it just seemed a bit repetitive at that point. But I love what you did. I loved the story you told, too.

That's very good. You sang it very well and I liked the story of the song.
I have recently become interested in blues music and trying to write and play it. Especially the old timey stuff like Muddy Waters. How did you get the guitar tone in the intro and solo? How did you play it?
Glad you enjoyed the song. The intro and solo were performed on a dobro guitar using a slide. I cant take credit for it, a friend of mine did it for me. I cant play slide to save my self, plus I dont have a dobro.
And good luck with the blues journey its a simple music but as I am finding out hard to play well.
