My Mama’ raised a good boy, it took me far
I got my daddy’s voice and his old guitar
Sent me down the road with a Bible and a prayer
Said,”Don’t forget son, the Devil’s everywhere”

Music’s in your blood boy, we learned you well
Sing songs of heaven like the Bible tells
Your Mama’ didn’t bless you with a voice so sweet
So if you’re gonna’ rock-n-roll…

You better swing it
Oh you gotta’ swing it
Look at me Mama’ I’m swinging’

Mama’ played gospel, Daddy played the blues
When I was growing’ up you didn’t have to choose
The road and the years have been good to me
So if you wanna’ rock-n-roll…

Come on and swing it

Hi Japov,
You got a little Stevie Ray mixed in with your gospel, that's a good thing. I really enjoyed this one. The only thing I wanted was more, maybe another 8 bars of that blues guitar. I write lots of country, along with many different styles of Christian music. I haven't done any Christian blues yet but you never know. Good luck with thissun.

Great. Love it.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Hi J:

Enjoyed your song. I assume that's your vocal and suspect it's also your guitar work. When you have time, tell us a little more about you, your music objectives and general direction. Nice work... and Selleck is right about the "Stevie Ray" vibe.

Best of luck with it. Send more when time permits.

Regards, ----Dave

You really have a knack for a great live sound.
I love this one - nice raunchy harmonics and that riff is infectious. smile

Well... really not much to tell Dave. That’s just me on the couch plugged into an Apple Mini. I’d play the drums too if I could get LogicX midi to work right with my old Simmons E-kit... can’t afford to keep up with technology anymore! I’ve got a 30y/o Sure prologue that still works lol, and my Dad's old Hagstrom that I still use for rhythm because the frets are so worn. I do this because it’s what I’ve always done... Overall, I guess I’m just here to take my shot in the dark like everyone else smile

I have always had a desire to be able to sit on the couch and do something like this
to me it seems like there is a deal of freedom in this genre. know what I mean? "just turn it loose kind of freedom.
I enjoy this the most I think. Lane
