howdy gang

this is an old folk song I recorded on my little Mya Moe soprano.

"Ragged But Right" is listed as a 'traditional' tune of unknown authorship, but I do know it's been recorded by many people; Johnny Cash, George Jones and Lil' Rev amongst others.

This is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPO-3RwyOVo

Hope you enjoy it! :o

I'm a rambling gambler and I'm drunk every night...
Eugene, you now have a fan club charter in California. This tune is so dear to me, and you have done it so well.
My hat, rarely off, is off.
You are plagued as I am whenever I do my show. For me it is Starlings...for you I am guessing Loris? Loudest darn birds ever.

Jon, I've seen 'em all, and all of 'em are awesome. Thanks for convincing me to get a Mya-Moe soprano with my deposit- even though I have no business playing a godforsaken soprano!

Hey Carrie

had some really cool props to use for that song, but everytime we went out to do it the animals'd start going off...first the dogs (ESPECIALLY the rotten dogs..aaaaaargggh!@!!!!), then the chooks, then the bloomin sheep, then the horses...sheeeesh! I thought farm life was s'posed to be peaceful and quiet...not on your life mate!!! So anyway, had to be content with the birds and the back porch ....ummmm...kind of ruined the "hobo busking for his next meal" theme didn't it? :o

Sure cletus. we live on a little hobby farm in the north tassie bush. We have just under 30 acres, most is bushland but some is cleared for grazing paddocks for the horses, and for our flower bulbs: we grow liliums and proteas on a seasonal basis, though the proteas flower throughout most of the year. We breed jack russell puppies and my wife has just started a stud - she breeds Connemaras. We also grow most of our own fruit and vegetables out here. It is a very isolated and I guess, "private" spot...nearest town about 20 minutes drive away, and the main "city" of Launceston is about 45 minute drive. Closest neighbour's place about 200metres, but they are similarly camoflauged by bush too. My wife Fiona paints and we have a little 110 year old studio room where she does her artwork and I do home recordings of music. Nothing fancy, pretty simple life as far as we can make it. No credit card. No mobile phones!!! Though occasionally I wish we had one. But the birds!!! They fill our days with music when we're not playing it ourselves. It's lovely actually.

Hey Bill, that's the back porch, looking north-east through the trees down towards where the creek flows through. Out the front is a little sheltered canopy that faces south towards the gardens.

Loved it! I have an old George Jones casset with that song on it.
