I hit a dry spell lately, writing-wise, but, playing the Kalamazoo pretty much exclusively, it was just a matter of time, probably.

It's a bit of a downer-type song, but... "Rogue wave off the starboard bow" kinda speaks to the pervasive gloominess I see and feel in my world these days. YMMV, of course.

Anyway--have a listen, if you dare. :unsure:

Don't fret, Anne, It's in all our worlds these days, and why artists get triggered. Empathy ain't much fun.
I may not be good lookin', but at least I ain't got no money.

Well done, this takes me back to the coffee house music of the early 60's. Loved it, just a singer, a mic, a song, and all the talent you had. You have all the bases covered very nicely, thank you.

Good unique sound on that K-Zoo guitar. I like it!

Superb, Anne! Your song is lovely, and the new/old guitar sounds spectacular.

By the way, I'd like to add that I have your album on my digital music player and listen to it a lot. It shares disc space with Bruce, Neil, Bob, Townes, Johnny, Emmylou and others. You stand proud among giants!

Anne I really enjoyed the sombre melody and lyrics.Worked well together.Your playing and the guitar sounded great.I do like a nautical metaphor.
When it started with " Four Bells" I was reminded of an Australian poem called "Five Bells" which is a long complex poem centred around a man who jumps from a Sydney Harbour Ferry to his death.

That's a great sounding guitar. Your song is a bit somber - so it goes, I like it. Hard to write happy bouncy stuff. Last song I wrote is called Rocky Mountain Suicide, which made the pick guard fall off my J-45. :rolleyes:

Truly lovely. I listened to it several times this morning. Thanks for sharing.

I'm sorry that I'm not up to speed; what Kalamazoo model is that? It sounds wonderful.

Thanks for the listens, all-- and if it's even too bleak for Stu, then I'm on the right track. ;)

Dan, it's now my goal to write a song that's so sad it makes a pickguard fall off! Ha!

Red, it's a 1935 (per our very own Zomby) Kalamazoo senior, which I understand to be a slightly hepped up KG-11. It has been modified with X-bracing, and it's quite a little charmer. I forgot to notice, until a couple of days ago, how much smaller it is than my LG-1. Like when you think your toddler is little but then the new baby comes home and makes the toddler look like a marauding giant.

Anyway, thanks again for listening. I am liking the legs on this one and am still working/tweaking the delivery and such. Fun times...
