#367 - I Walk the Line

Song - I Walk the Line

This song was a blast to do with Nathan!  This is my favorite karaoke song to hear him sing and we have talked about doing a song together forever.  So glad to finally get the chance to sing with this great, southern gentleman!

#366 - If I had a Boat

Song - If I had a Boat
Artist - Lyle Lovett
Guest artist(s) - John on guitar, Dan on spoons, Larry on mandolin and Debbie behind the camera.

I've been thinking of ways to take this blog in a different direction for a while (you might have noticed that I haven't posted anything since December!)  I really enjoy playing with friends and family so it seems a natural progression that this project would eventually involve more musicians to collaborate with.  My goal is to play songs with the people I care about and embrace our mutual love of music.  I hope to play music with people of all skill levels; from those who have never played an instrument and only sing in the privacy of their shower to people like John who have been playing for longer than I've been alive and I have so much to learn from.  A lot of folks have expressed interest in the project, so I'm hoping that I'm able to do some great collaborations!

This was a great group to kick off this project with!  We made this video at my mom's birthday over the weekend which was so much fun!  Any time I play with this amazing group of musicians I learn so much and grow just a little bit which each tune we play.  This is a song my dad's band (the Brownsmead Flats) used to play when I was a kid.  I heard it recently and decided that, yep, just like I remembered, John did it better and I requested that he play it at the cabin.  Thanks John for playing one of my favorites!

#364 - Pecan Pie

Song - Pecan Pie

A song by Mr Billy Bones! Special appearance by Yagi! And the debate continues, is it pronounced "pee-CAN" or "pee- CAHN".

This one is for all you vegetarians/vegans out there on Thanksgiving this year! Share this video to get ahead of the "why-don't-you-want-any-turkey??" conversation.
