Retired military solo artist; Tex/Americana/Folk singer/songwriter. 'Scratch' is my military handle and TexScratch a stage name just for the purpose of having a stage name, I suppose... Let's Talk Guild (LTG) guitar forum friends inspired many tunes and the inclination to purchase far too many Guild Guitars over the years...

Folks at times refer to some of my music as melancholy/somber. I'll admit that to about 60% or so of the tunes I compose. We all have trials in life; I tend to write about mine as personal therapy. Many relate to special family members, friends or acquaintances.

"Song Down Here Somewhere", nice tune exlnt lyrics. Mark Hermann was not only my friend but a true brother with whom I travelled all over N.A. He will always be missed. His site should always stay up. He turned me on to your music. Am thankful for it. Keep it up.
Scratch, I strummed along with you on the JF30-12. When I get the lyrics down, I'll record it and e-mail it to ya. Everything about this song fits like a well-cut puzzle. I hope I can inject the passion you have. Well Done Brother!
