After many years have finally finished writing the Jellyfish Song 😀
I Don’t Know (The Mine)
Made this one up out of nowhere! Was meant to be another country style song, but it turned into a Wild West story type AND my first fully written song. Classify as that because the base ideas for the Cat song came from my friends Paul & Joel and was largely a standard blues progression, whereas this one contained all my own ideas, chords, lyrics + plucking strings intro. It somehow got much more serious than the epic Cat song, but that kind of just happened 😀
Should say this all happened after seeing the excellent docu-movie Motown, when found myself somewhat inspired to write another song.
A Garbage Truck Done Run Over My Cat!
After many years of half-writing songs, finally decided to finish one!
Unbeknown to most, I’ve actually played the guitar for over 20 years, just not very well(blame that on not practicing properly and for being left-handed, but playing right-handed). Anyways, wanted to finish a song for a long while and today was finally managed to do that.
The theme of the song was inspired by my friend and Country Rock listening pioneer Paul Sell(who reckons Country Rock is the next big thing to hit England) and the style of the song by Joel Cross who suggested I do a blues song. oh and of course Henry and Grahamina the cat!
It’s an Old style country / blues song of how an angry lady runs over a man’s pet cat with a garbage truck.
