    Default Season 417: original favourite country shorts

    howdy folks,

    welcome to the new season.
    not being a particularly decisive person, i found it difficult to settle on a single theme for the week. so you have four categories to graze around:

    ORIGINAL
    write and record a new original song or instrumental.
    no thematic or stylistic boundaries.
    simply whatever is in your heart and hands.

    FAVOURITE
    Richard Buckner and John Darnielle (from the Mountain Goats)
    are the two songwriters who have influenced my own music more than any others.
    record a song written by either one.

    COUNTRY
    in 2001 i bought a live album recorded one night in 1995 by three lifelong friends: "Together at the Bluebird Café"
    record a cover of any song written by Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle or Guy Clark.

    SHORTS
    write or cover any song provided it is 1 minute or less.
    consider it pt 2 of season 336.


    usual start and finish times apply.
    a small gift to my favourite performance in each category.
    have a ball y'all.

    I so miss my favourite original pair of country shorts. I wore them for years!

    Looking forward to a great week.

    I've had a last minute inspiration for a Rain song... but I told work I'd come in on my last day of vacation.... Ugg... decisions.

    A Steve Earle song Saturday night and Sunday morning which was written by David Olney.
    None of the lines rhyme, but the writing is so good you would never notice it.

    As luck would have it this one comes in at just under a minute without really missing any parts out, I just did the verse once.

    This little KoAloha soprano got some nice comments here when it went on holiday with me last week. It was one of the first ukes I bought, but when I moved to concert size, it stayed mostly in its case. I just looked inside it, and this month is its 10th birthday, so it deserves another run out.
    Here's one of my favourite Steve Earle songs.

    Soprano - KoAloha KSM-00, Maccaferri Islander....Concert - Barron River Mahogany, Barron River Cypress, MyaMoe Koa, Johnny Marvin "Tenor" ....Sopranino - Rob Collins Cigar Box...all with Worth strings...and a few chords
