I have been playing guitar for 40 years and I really love the blues, but I am well versed in Rock And Country. My influences are my Dad who taught me to play as well as Johnny Cash, Elvis, and muddy waters and My wife Nikki
Mood altering thugs: Why is it that when I'm "bummed out" (do people say that anymore?) I gravitate towards music, books, movies, etc. that are...well...sort of dark? You would think that I'd want to soak up pleasant vibes when I'm in that state of mind but I really can't stand to be around happy people when I'm down and out. I wrote the song "It Sometimes Rains" when I was in a similar situation years ago. Misery loves company as long as it's miserable too!
Anyway I've recently been re-reading a lot of Dostoevsky and listening to Cowboy Junkies...sometimes at the same time!
What a weirdo!...
new tune : Well, I am back here after being away for a couple years. Not sure how this blog works yet! I've been working on a new CD over the last year or so and will start uploading the tunes here over the next little while. First upload is called "True Blue" ~Dave
