Buck's Blues

Everyone deserves a song. That's just the way it is. This one goes out to blog-bud Buck, just as a day brightener. If I had a hip little convertible and a wide open Western highway to drive it on, this is what I'd hear in my head. Sure, we have our differences, but we share a fondness for Trappist beers, fine cigars, and things that go slide on guitars. It's a start. Hope you enjoy Buck's Blues.

Oh my goodness Cricket, it THIS YOU?? Wow, now that's what I call fine, finger-pickin' blues, young man - wonderful!

You are too modest, Cricket. You have talent with a capital T. Really good pickin' and I will tell everyone. Thanks for sharing with us.

From one picker to another, that's some mighty fine pickin'.

Damn. The more I listen to you, the more I realize that you're a major league talent and I'm somewhere down in Single A hanging on by my fingernails as a third-string catcher. Anyway, Buck should love it! Having a song named after you is sort of the ultimate, and most especially such a tasty one.

What everyone else said: mighty fine pickin'... MIGHTY fine!

I am SO honored by this, Cricket. Thank you!

Hey Buck - Glad to hear it.

I write and record a song almost every morning. My usual m.o. these days is, if we must label, free jazz/post-rock/ambient - but every now and then I need to get out of a rut and do something completely different.

So I started fooling around with that riff there and thought, I bet I know someone who might appreciate something like this.

There may be a musical post in the future with pictures of the insanely modern gear I've been using to make rather retro noises. A hint: my telecaster is affectionately nicknamed "the Borg" and the drums/bass on this track were played on it.

Anyways, glad you liked it.

Everyone else - thanks, really and truly.

You're right! It does deserve a convertible or at least a great beer.
I'll be sharing! How cool is it to know the artist? =;]
