Window Philosophy #11 from My Old Soul

“We’re living, we’re on this planet, find a good song on the radio and jam it”.

It took a while for me to get this one up to my normal levels of jamtronic standards.  I was leaning heavily towards wind instruments (flute, french horn and oboe) as I like to do.  But it took the addition of the lead guitar to get it to come around.  Chris Singleton put some tasty bass on it to get it going as well.

“Philosophy would go right out the window, if we would only be this happy all the time”.  Thanks for listening!

Window Philosophy. December 22nd

The year and my songs are winding down and I’m already looking forward to next year’s projects. I’m gonna put out a few albums of course and I’m planning on writing my long awaited (by me) golf book which will mix new age philosophy with golf.  Sounds like a million seller right?  How about some “Window Philosophy” for todays song!

May 22 “Expected Eclectic”

The golf tournament was fun.  I played great for about 11 holes making 4 birdies and an eagle in that span but I was mediocre after that.   I couldn’t seem to get over the hump.   We had a whole lot of fun though and I played a lot of tunes with my friend Will for some folks on Lake Rabun.   My golf songs were part of the agenda of the golf themed weekend of course.

Anyway, I dug back into my archives for the music of this one.  This is a song Parakeet Nelson never released. This was recorded at Elixir in Athens, Georgia around 2003.   Today, I took the music and re-recorded a few parts, re-wrote the lyrics and resurrected it from the dead.   Which is one of the things I love about this format, now I can let the world hear John Wayne Tuggle’s slide guitar, Dwayne Wallace’s bass guitar, Dave Brockway’s drums and John Kell’s sax.

March 16 “Foolin’ Around”

What can I say,  I guess I was in a silly mood this morning when I wrote this.

I’ve been shopping for mini keyboards online and was looking at demos of different one’s on YouTube.   They all tend to be called  ‘Fooling around on the..”.   I guess that’s the trend for demoing keyboards.

That’s where  I started the song from and then it slowly degenerated from there.
