Too Much Time For Thinking

Recommended Posts

Well it is back to the comfort zone and  love of the early 1950's style Blues.  The attempt was to do it  in a kind of Jimmy McCracklin style of Blues/Rhythm 'n Blues (early to mid-1950'style).  It is about a guy who has been isolated (perhaps due to CoVid 19?) for a while.  This has given this poor subject of the song - "Too Much Time For Thinking."

I am always appreciative of your comments, suggestions, crit.'s, etc.  Thanks!

This has a sweetly loose feel that works in so many ways it is almost tight, nice as ever @freddy j love it.

Hi tom.  Thanks for the kind comments.  As long as I got close --- Jimmy McCracklin's rhythmic style is certainly his own.  Not sure if the comments down the post were directed to me nor am I sure what the numbers mean.  I don't follow stat's like that very closely.  I will be the first to admit that I am a poor communicator - especially virtually.  I offer no excuses but do offer a reason for a recent lack of participation.  My wife had to go in the hospital a few weeks ago and now that she is at home I have been taking care of her while she recuperates.  I appreciate your taking the time to listen and comment!!

Hey Wookiee.  Thank you my furry friend (I love alliterations).  A lot of McCracklin's songs were that way (e.g., The Walk).  I was hoping I got near that style.

Hi Bapu.  Good to see you back on the Forum again.  Can we expect some tunes from the Coffee House Band (or spinoffs)?  I hope so.  Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.  It is much appreciated.

 Freddy , Good one and Great advice in the lyrics. I really liked the phrase "too much time for thinking". Sometimes I think too much freedom (in your time) makes your reflective thinking time ,  a little less impactful .  Enjoyed it ..  mark

They most certainly were NOT directed at you.

hope your wife is doing well and wish her a full recovery. I have some experience at being the caregiver; two knees and a kidney. All three with outstanding results.

I think I heard a sharp 9 in there ! Your voice is authoritative in that blues way. . .In places like Johnny Cash even. Really enjoyed it.

Freddy, I just love the traditional blues progressions going on in the background. "Too much time for thinking" fits right in with the blues theme.

Thank you for the listen and comments Mark.  You're right -- too much time for thinking can be a bane but can also be a time for some good reflection and decisions.  My, my --- that is uncharacteristically optimistic of me.  😄

Hi Tom.  Thanks much for your comments and PM.  I do hope that your wife and you are doing well!

Hello HSM.  Thanks very much for listening and responding!  I am very glad that you liked it!

Hi Nigel. Thanks very much for listening and taking the time to comment.  Just a wee bit of social observation from the fictitious Freddy J and the Good Guys.  BTW, Luv your new post!!

Hey David.  Good to hear from you.  I am glad that you enjoyed it.  I very much appreciate your kind comments.

Hi Bjorn.  Thanks very much appreciate the kind words.  I'm looking forward to listening (and watching) to some new posts from you!

"Confusion is all around us.  What is the truth and who is lying?"

Even more so now then when you put this up on July 22. It gets crazier every day second.

Truer words were never spoken.

My friend, you really know how to white 'um.

As always, your words capture the vibe that's going around our lives at any given time.  Your songs (I listened to the first two) are like comfort food to me.  It's hard to keep up with you!
