    How's your vision? Blind Mama Louden has a certain ring to it too.

    Linda, thanks for hosting. You're a real-life superhero! Here's a blues song I wrote this morning for the Season.

    Here's a Steve Earle song I've always loved that popped into my head for this week. Used open Bb tuning here. This was super fun to attempt!

    Still confused?

    #1- Bring Fred some blues tunes. Any key. This is the easiest choice.
    #2- You hate the blues you say?.....Well then, Bring me any song in the key of G.
    #3- Do you want to try something new? Try a blues tune in open tuning of your choice. Refer to the OP. (Geoff explains Open G for both standard and baritone in post #6 of you want to stay on the key of G.)
    #4- This week is the start of the seventh year we have had the Seasons. You can bring 7 songs.
    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    Looking for some bluesy songs I hadn't done before I found the Rat Pack doing this one.

    Open G7 blues, attempted slide. The slide seems to be a little easier to use on the baritone than on the smaller ukes, for some reason.



    Well, my life's pretty good, got nothin' to complain
    I don't tell no lies, got nothin' to explain
    I can't get the blues, and it's givin' me some pain

    You know my wife loves me, and she treats me real good, too
    She ain't never cheated, no she's always been true
    Makes me feel so good, I can't even get the blues

    No, I can't even get the blues
    And I don't mean that sarcastically
    If I'm singin' the blues
    I only do it ironically
    I'm always happy, rain or shine
    And nobody ever steps on my shoes
    I got them real good ironic blues

    My kids don't do drugs and they're doin' well in school
    Yeah, they're respectable kids and they're doing good in school
    They're both smart as whips and they ain't nobody's fools

    I got a car that I like and it gets good mileage, too
    I got a song I can sing and a ukulele or two
    Got me feelin' so good, I can't even get the blues
    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...
