I’m back, back again. Discovered this song this morning thanks to Spotify and had to learn it just as I got home. Usually I practice it for a week or so before recording but today decided to do it all in one afternoon.
It was a lot more demanding than other songs I learned, being new and with the picking and strumming while singing I feel like I improve a little bit at everything everytime I play it. So here it is, bunch of mistakes to analyze but also some positives.
If you’ve seen any of my videos before, I do record it with my phone’s front camera, but finally fixed the mirror effect (yay!).
Hey Kevin, what a productive afternoon, this rolls along in a foot tapping way nice and cruisy. There’s some nice vocal expression there too. You look relaxed and connected with what you’re doing, maybe it’s the PJ’s. Did you wear your PJ’s all day because you were so caught up in the creative surge
I can see why you liked that song. I always enjoy that kind of country/folk “americana” (and it cries out for a fiddle). Nicely done! I like the lyrics, too: “shot us down like September doves” is very evocative. I immediately knew what it was getting at. Dove season (at least here in Texas) opens in September, so they kind of rain down in the fields.
