Just saying hello, as I have just joined up. I write mostly country and folk and attempt to sing just well enough to provide a rough demo. The country stuff isn't helped by the fact that I'm originally from Scotland and the accent sounds kind of daft with country lyrics. I try to write good stuff - who doesn't? - but I really do it for fun.

I will spare everyone's ears until I've had a chance to settle in and get to know a few folks. In the meantime, hopefully I can provide some helpful feedback. At least, I'll be trying to be helpful....

Hey Gavin!

Glad you could join in on JPF! Settle on in:-)

I've been on JPF for a while...I also have ended up in North Carolina, where the saying goes: I wasn't born in North Carolina, but I got here as fast as I could.

Myself? I live in Raleigh, but there are two long-time members who live within half an hour's drive from you....We've often talked about getting together for an afternoon, just to meet in person and swap some lies and silliness on a lazy Saturday afternoon, but haven't actually gotten around to doing it yet...Ain't we the lazy ones?:-)

So, I'll let you settle in here, and sometime, about a month or so from now, I'll send a JPF "PM" to you and the other two. And in that "Personal Message", we will figure out a place to meet on a Saturday afternoon this summer or fall.

'Til then....

Midnite


Satchel was right. Something is gaining on me.

Hi Gavin:

Welcome to JPF. The transition from Scotland to the USA and North Carolina must have been interesting to say the least. I hope you enjoy your time with us, visit often and share some of your music, lyrics or melodies with us. Sounds like you may be "into" the "Country Genre." I agree with you, it might take the listener a bit of time to adjust to the "Scottish Burr" in the vocal of a Country Song. LOL!

I saw on one of your early posts here where you and Ray expressed differing views... with a degree of Bridge buying Humor thrown in for good measure. One of the things I enjoy here is having the ability to disagree without rancor... and you appear to be that type of guy.

You have already begun to "explore" the many forums here and that is a good thing to do. Site navigation has improved over the years and Brian works hard to provide us with some of the best entertainment on the web.

Welcome! ----Dave

Um, Well,
We did have another "Scotsman" from Scotland posting here named Big Jim Merless if I'm not mistaken. Listed over on the left that growled at everything. We miss Big Jim. Geronimo!

Thanks for the welcome, Steve. I will give your songs a listen when I get a moment. My daughter is getting married this week, so not much in the way of spare moments!

Gavin-

I'm Scotch-Irish and Cherokee!

You've moved to great place I know well--North Carolina!

Look forward to your thoughts and songs!
