Well, having installed the K&K this morning in the new geetar, had to do a test run. A bit bass heavy in the video.......might be the response of the Blue Yeti USB mic as it didn't sound quite so strong in the low end live.......EQ knob will fix that. An original tune from perhaps 2001 or so.........trying to work it back up for the set list.......suffers from a lack of harmonies!! In my usual three-chords-and-a-cloud-of-dust, boot scootin' style..............hurl fruits and veggies as the mood strikes.......I prefer peaches to apples!



Empty Locket Fool The Bucster, 2001

She held that empty locket, then she slipped in in her pocket
She thought she heard him call her name as she walked out the door
If she could have just one wish it's only to forget
That picture she left lying on the floor

There was a time when their love was, but like the summer does
It faded into memories and one last photograph
And though she knows he was wrong, still she must go on
And she stumbles on that heartache in her path

When the lights go out and she's all alone
She's drifting in time trying to wish him back home
Someday she's gonna let him go but for now she's livin' in blue
And he'll always be her empty locket fool

There's no more smiling face, her reflection's in it's place
And in those eyes she sees the things that he could never find
Should you ask her now what love is all about
She'd hope you'd find your answer in her eyes
J45 Vintage - J45 12 fret

Nothing wrong with 3 chords and a cloud of dust, from you Buc. That sounded really nice and love the song. Get with BK or EA with some talk of the Boss unit they use and that will get you some good harmonies supposedly. But you do very well without in my opinion.

Thanks for the nice bounce! That 12 fretter sounds great in your hands. I tried to tune down a half step like you suggested and it didn't work for me but it sure works for you. I think it's a case of different strokes for different folks and me playing with bare fingers. I think. Good writing too.

I'm @ 6 miles below the Indiana/Michigan line, south of Sturgis MI, and about the same distance north of Lagrange IN. Puts me about an hour's driving from Kalamazoo (the Gibson nest), Fort Wayne IN, and South Bend, depending on the direction. Miss Austin a lot, but - ah, well. Why you ask? And, by the way, welcome to the Gibson Saloon!

Sounds awfully darn nice to me and a great bit of songwriting. You're really very good at that.

If I were ever to buy another guitar, it'd be a 12-fretter slope....

Wonderful sound, playing and sing, Buc! Reminiscent of Guy Clark, one of my heroes.
