The Bluesman c2003 is slow and groovy also deliberate in delivery. A 1-4-5 progression done twice before the actual turn around.

About the song
The actual musician line up for this particular recording consists of Tony Sena performing on a ¾ scale Yamaha acoustic guitar, Danny Timms jamming on an Estey Royal spinet acoustic piano, and Shane O’Brien plucking a Martin D28 acoustic guitar and singing an improvised vocal line.

Now, to the song itself. I am not sure about elsewhere in the country, rest assured that in Southern California there are plenty of musicians of the highest caliber. As well, for everyday of the week, except Fridays and Saturdays of course, there are plenty of Open Mic Jams at various venues...
Many of us musicians, who are in between gigs, try our darnedest to keep our chops up by attending these publicized open jams. For us that well lets say who play our own brand of Blues or variety of Blues Rock or whatever the Genre we fit in, things can get a little touchy emotionally, especially for the thin skinned types of Artist displaying his or her original written music. Imagine this. You show up early, sign in on a piece of blank paper, if you can find it, and wait for your name to be called so you too can join on stage with whomever and or whatever band situation the host lands you into. Also, we cant worry about when, with whom, or who will direct the jam as it happens, or even if we do get called upon to participate. These gatherings tend to be very Cliquee in nature and thats just the way it is and always has been and always will be too... Hence forth the creation of this song titled The Bluesman.
As you hear the lyrics to this songs story line, you may notice the scene develops with a man who really cant get along in life shinning as a standout but he does accepts his lot in life because he knows in the end he is blessed. THE SUN SHINES ON MY BACK DOOR...
He is also dirt broke most likely living from place to place, cant even afford a phone call and wouldnt know who to call for help anyway, and someone who plays the Blues. He performs his own brand of music, which are very personal to him. His blues stories…
The third verse is somewhat of a fantasy this self proclaimed blues man dreams up. He acquires a Cadillac Coupe De Ville and together with his own brand of blues songs he is now automatically invited to participate on stage within the circle of the best blues men in the world. These Black Musicians are known as the Central Street Blues All Star Band from South Los Angeles. Innovators regarding this American music, who are the stand out musicians on the West Coast blues world. He can jam with them at every gathering and won’t have to wait or be disappointed by not being called up to play or put in stage situations that do not allow this guy to share his language of music. Satisfaction guaranteed every tine… Ah, the life of The Bluesman… Quite the story indeed
