  1. Crowell is one-hell-of-a-songwriter.  His phrasing and metaphors are excellent  Like John Prine, he has a very unique way of saying things and I think your rendition is also your own unique take on the song.   I really enjoyed it!........BTW, I've kind of been working on a similar message in one of my songs, but trust me, it's nowhere near the quality of this song......  Crowell is one of the best ever.

  2. The phones are limited.  The layout changes on a phone.  Things are not where we typically find them and some are hidden.  I normally use my IPad and get-around okay.

  3. I think it’s wise to go back and look at, re-record, and revise old songs.  Not only do we find things we can do better with improved playing skills, but we find better ways to say things and we find partially-finished songs that we’d forgotten that look different to us now.   Likewise, songs we rarely play anymore can be brought-to-life with a new perspective.  Keep doing it, Lars!  This is how we learn and improve.

  4. It’s tough to beat a J45,  Doesn’t matter if it’s your first guitar or 100th guitar.  Once you’ve had it a while, we’ll be expecting a video and song......Congrats!  Good choice!

    On the subject of Kermit the Frog, when my niece was 4 or 5 years old she heard "Going Up the Country" by Canned Heat and thought Kermit was singing.



    I’d never thought of that, but it does sound like Kermit........BTW, many years ago, me and Annie Green Springs spent many hours listening to this song after I made several copies of it on a Sears tape recorder.  It would play 6-7 times and I’d rewind the tape and play it again.

    They made this:

    I thought they made a pink one but I can only find a Hummingbird in pink.


    A pink Hummingbird?  Good God!  Isn’t there some law against that kind of perversion?  I should have known that when it became legal to marry a horse that making pink Hummingbirds wan’t far behind..  Somebody  should burn in hell for that!

  7. I believe 73, 000, 072 were made of the J45 Limited.  Found the info on the internet...........To me, all the J45 variations are likely real butt-kicker guitars.  The only one I can’t see my self with is the neon green one.  It would totally destroy the folksinger image I have of myself.

  8. Don’t know if they’re underrated, but for their usual low-mid range price, lots of Yamahas are pretty decent.  Underrated or overrated, like much of our guitar discussions, is very subjective and dependent on individual opinions.  I don’t personally care for Taylor’s, but I believe they are high quality guitars as far as quality control and workmanship go.  However, I don’t care to own one, because they don’t speak to me and I’d likely never play it.   Other people feel the same about Gibson and Martin.

  9. I used to have insomnia at times before I retired.  Since I retired over 8-years ago, insomnia has become pretty rare for me.  I sleep when I’m tired.   If not tired, I don’t try to sleep.  I’m often awake at 3am, playing guitar and running my model trains.  Caffeine doesn’t seem to bother me much, or maybe i just sleep when I’m ready and don’t realize the caffeine is bothering me.   Maybe it’s just that my life isn’t very stressful.    Whatever, I’m much more relaxed than 15-20 years ago.  Also, my wife and I are often out-and-about most of the day, so lots of activity gets us tired.

  10. A real gem, Roger!  This takes me back down memory lane and the older I get the more I realize why those memories are so important.  Really a sweet tune.  I know every generation has its own story to tell, but I can’t help but feel a bit of sadness for those who didn’t grow-up when we did.
