    As some others have mentioned - I enjoyed the lead guitar track and the percussion - nicely done.

    Thx for the great feedback douglas.

                , while chiming this rant, Godoi’s  phone  rang and he dutifully thrust his hand  into the  pocket


    to see who, or what, or which thought is so urgent to beckon him,

    noticing others around he pretended to not care.


                “I’ll get back to them later.” Godoi’s pea brain thought.

  3. Well done.  Only thing I noticed out of the ordinary were some plosives (I'm listening on consumer stereo).  Love your voice.

    David, you have an incredibly unique approach to every piece of music I've heard from you.  The music matches your video very well.  All I can say is keep 'em coming!

    Lynn,  it means alot to me to hear your praise.  Thanks for listening and commenting.

    Great song👍

    Old Joad, where have you been!?

  5. Gary, this is a great recording!  I listened on consumer stereo and it sounded fantastic.  Your daughter's voice has presence and warmth.  And of course the performance is outstanding.

    I agree with @Paul Bush a nice ethnic motif would be kind of cool! 


    I'm not a fan of the banjo shift. That was too sudden for my taste and jarring. But, I really like the guitar tone and the simplicity of the piece. Personally the timing was too imperfect for me, I found that distracting but that's just my preference.

    Ruralrocker, thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy day to watch this.  Ya,  the timing is kind of nasty in places.  They were supposed to be hemi-ola's but i didn't make up the time.

    Brilliant!!! This was pure entertainment and an absolute hoot.  Great video (cleverly done) and a great song with cool lyrics.  Oh ya, great performance and production on the song and video.  I can't remember the name of the film but I do remember the quote by one of the characters in it: "...  old men are invisible."  The quote might be appropriate to this production.  Being a "Boomer" it might even apply to me.   Y'all look like you must put on a great show.

    This,  your shows must be wildly entertaining.  Good tune to boot.  I always thought *the man* was something to do with authority, not coolness (per se).  If you  play in portland let me know.

  9. what is the background picture?  At my age, slow ambient pieces have enormous appeal.   I believe you have done a great recording here!

    A BLOODY MASTER AT WORK  ... I won't hijack this song, but for me the heartbeat drum and ambience has a draw to me, like the smell of a freshly baked apple pie .. I'm irresistibly drawn to writing words for it .. or indeed eating a freshly baked home made apple pie ...

    Well done it's hard to write something simple and so lovely 🖖




    OM goodness steve, thanks for the praise.  We can collaborate if you want.  Not sure where you live.

     David , I Loved the percussion section. That was also a Superb use of a banjo. I believe a nylon strung banjo is Way under utilized.   Very enjoyable ..  mark

    Mark,  thanks so much for listening and watching.  I want to do more stuff with banjo.

    This is a lovely song David and the video complements it very well.  I also loved the percussion and thought the bass lines added a lot to the flow of the song.  Nice guitar work also.  IMHO some times the simplicity of a song that is done well can carry the day.  I think that you have matched that goal in this song.

    Freddy, thank you for watching and listening.  The little story in the video reminded me of when I lived in the south and some friends down there.

  11. Loved the rhythm in this one, really unique.  And, what a great voice!  Might want to change up the drum track a little...skip a beat hear and there.

    David . . . now I'm feeling left out for missing that other version ? . . . but, fortunately I like this version just fine, it feels comfortable, down home, and I really like the guitar part through this. Now, this is something different from your normal thing, didn't know you played guitar as well ? The thing I like about the guitar is that even though the chording pattern is repetitive, it changes up in feel and tempo constantly, very nice, like it's played live. I'm interested how you recorded this one.

    Jack and noynekker thank you so much for taking the time to watch that ditty.  Love is love...no two ways about it.  Noy I just got the drums going and laid down trax.  It's a little amateur, but I like the melody alot.

    David, a very pleasant stroll in the countryside. Thanks for posting.

    Glad you liked bjorn.

  13. So I rejiggered this a little, re titled it.  The symbolism is less offensive. :D:D
