I had a really quick bash at Don't Take It Too Bad (didn't have time to learn the lyrics hence the looking off camera). Would have liked to pick it but it seems to lend itself to a gentle strum!

Hi all. My first post here on the forum. I'm planning on purchasing a J45 of some type this summer and I discovered this forum while doing some research. Thanks for having me [biggrin]

This is a TVZ video I made a few months ago.

Nice entries here, gentlemen--thanks for making this thread so appealing. [thumbup]

I worked up White Freightliner for open mic tonight, and it went pretty good so I thought I'd give it a run here. (Updated my webcam software but the annoying click is still there...no clue what the conflict is.)

I really love this thread!

And today I received my copy of the Townes Van Zandt "Texas Troubadour" box set. Bautiful.
Ciao

Haha...You're right BBG, "Nothin' and "Waitin Round to Die" are pretty bleak.....but powerful pieces of work...they seldom occur on the Wiggles setlist.I reckon "Nothin'" would have been a good cover for Johnny Cash on one of those last Rick Rubin produced albums.

Wow!

I thought once this post went off the first page it had ended. Wrong, but very happy about it! Wonderful music folks and I'm learnin' some new licks and arrangements. Amazing- one writer but what diverse and compelling interpretations. Really enjoying this. it's like "Poet" where the big names came together for a Tribute to Townes.

I gotta offer this to you folks. On a UMGF thread someone had a DVD copy of an Austin City Limits tribute to Townes. Completed shortly after his death. In a line of chairs on stager were Steve Earle, Wille, EmmieLou, Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, John TVZ, Guy Clark (host), Rodney Crowell, Jack Clements, and Peter Rowan. Maybe another or two in there. It's where Steve Earle sang "Fort Worth Blues" and Nanci shed some tears in the background. I waited 10 years to find it! This episode was never repeated but my friend had copied it. He sent me a copy and I would be more than happy to extend it to any of you. Just PM me with your address and I'll get you one.

I remember sitting down to watch this show knowing Townes as the guy who wrote "Pancho & Lefty". Next day I bought 3 of his CDs. He's become a big influence on my music from then on. So lemme know if you want one and please keep it within the scope of the contributers on this post. I don't want to make a boatload of 'em.

Here's my sleepy rendition of "Tower Song" (if I can remember how to post... [smile] )
