  1. I lean toward being pretty impressed with the Maton! The Dove sounded pretty good, too! And you're a good player.
  2. That is an amazing post. John's gone now and I agree that musicians certainly can mean an awful lot to many of us. The power of music. And creativity. He certainly was a songwriting genius.
  3. I think it's sheer genius. The lyric, alone, as a poem should win an award. Actually, that's what it is, a poem set to song. Amazing talent to write something like that, to be able to even come up with all of that. Especially and have it make sense. Love the very end where he says play this very song, lol. Vintage Bob. Soon as I heard it, I told my bud I bet this wins a grammy.
  4. To me, it was strange when Neil was walking around, facing / not facing the camera... huge audio quality differences. I suppose I should salute quirky.
  5. Good job, keep at it, best wishes on your return!
  6. Buc, it's a wonder I clicked based on your evasive title, lol, (pet peeve) but thanks a bunch, this is awesome! Bravo, bravo, bravo! From Ukraine, holy cow! That's a day brightener!
  7. I think the overall feel is really good. I can't really evaluate the song without seeing the lyric. Your guitar sounds great, the recorded sound is terrific and you have improved your voice dramatically, for sure! I'm impressed, keep at it! I like "regrets, regrets" in the chorus.
  8. I have never seen that particular video, thanks! He seemed nervous. I was going to recommend a j45. Congrats!
  9. I love it! Such fabulous tone, I love it when he picks individual notes, especially.
  10. What a cool pic. He looks so devilish sometimes!
  11. I have j45 and D28 and love both. If you play strummy songs, the J45 is better IMO.
  12. Songwriting (great songwriting) is hard. Great lyric writing, specifically, is apropos for this comment. I will mention some things that struck me as having potential for improvement. Two hands on the wheel, heading South in the rain >>> good There's a white line to the unknown >>>”There’s a white line” is slightly weak and "to the unknown" is stronger. If I suggest a lyric change, I am just giving an example improvement of something that pops into my head. You, the writer, could spend hours, days, on a single line. I write the following with not much attention to your meter, but IMO, possibly better… The white line embraces (or points to, leads to, etc.) the unknown Or You could make something up about the white line being a separator or a line that keeps two opposing forces separate. Or two forces attracted to one another. Doing that in one phrase would be a challenge, but you get the idea. And a dozen red roses on the passenger seat >>>It may be fine but might could improve. Perhaps something like… And a dozen red roses riding shotgun Or And a dozen red roses where I want her to be (in that seat) Or Make something up about the dozen red roses looking lonely in that seat. I'm so tired of being alone >>>This is trite, it seems a bit boring. “I’m so tired of being alone” just doesn’t work for me. Jason Isbell wrote one of my favorite songs and wrote essentially what you wrote except the word “traveling” changes everything; the verses about him traveling alone lead to his chorus of being tired of traveling alone. “And I’ve grown tired of traveling alone, tired of traveling alone, I’ve grown tired of traveling alone, won’t you ride with me.” Please, please, oh please, may each passing mile help my soul awake >>>"Help my soul awake" bugs me because it would seem to me that your soul is already very awake; are you not wishing for her soul to awaken? Actually, her heart might be a better target in a song like this. It ain't easy, Lars, keep at it! Lyric books could also help. Yeah, you sing fine for singer-songwriter stuff; some of my favorite artists are not singers. Neither am I! It doesn't matter so much if one writes great stories in song. Your guitar sure sounds great, nice! Good luck!
  13. This is great! I have played this song similarly at gigs. It's a great song, she did great and sure plays well!
  14. I just found this, don't know if it's been posted. I've listened three times, lol. I friggin love the Bob and this rendition provides a joyous revisit to his genius. This is such a cool song, it's actually pretty unique with its structure and when it was on the radio in the 60s, it sure was a singalong! All of these kids do a great job but this lead singer is outstanding! She could be a star! She sure likes the song, too! Kids sing Tambourine Man
