So this is a collab between myself and Travis. Its an accoustic blues number I had sitting around and I thought it made a nice fit to Travis' lyrics. Any and all comments are appreciated! It has no bass line as of yet, does it need one? Or does it sound ok as is? Thanks for giving it a spin, we hope you enjoy it!

CIDER JENNY 2015
Lyrics Travis David
Music and performance Todd Strachan

Grows all her apples on her backyard patch
picks them herself turns them into mash
She brews cloudy cider costs her pennies
Makes a good living, does cider Jenny

c
Folks all around line up all day
buy a few jugs go on their way
Get there late there won't be any
it's lip smacking good from Cider Jenny

v
up Jenny goes on her high 'ole chair
gathering the apples and the pears
Folks says she's kin of Johnny Appleseed
she don't say no, never disagrees

c
Folks all around line up all day
buy a few jugs go on their way
Get there late there won't be any
it's lip smacking good from Cider Jenny

b
If there's a party going on anywhere
you can bet you'll smell cider floating on the air.
It reaches the parts other liquer can't reach
gets wallflowers up, dancing on their feet

v
Gets some to fall, give the tree a shake
Sorts the bad ones out cause they give a belly ache
Happy by herself, her dog by her side
Full jugs of cider keep Jenny satisfied

c
Folks all around line up all day
buy a few jugs go on their way
Get there late there won't be any
it's lip smacking good from Cider Jenny


c
Folks all around line up all day
buy a few jugs go on their way
Get there late there won't be any
it's lip smacking good from Cider Jenny

Hi Todd and Travis,

I love the singer's Jagger-ish bite, it cuts through the mix for sure, and the simple arrangement works cuz of the singers' enthusiasm and simple effective guitar work. Hot Tuna's Jorma Kaukonen comes to mind.

If it were me, I might just try a slightly more daring solo (not too, though) but I'm loving this, pretty much as is.

Travis--a nice rich portrait and I think the rootsy Americana treatment works great. smile

Mike

love the loose easy feel here! Had to go back and edit my comments. I was listening to a different song and I originally said this might sound better more upbeat... This songs tempo works just fine! Enjoyed it!
