For some reason, I'm a bit shy about posting my own music to Facebook and MyLot, probably because I think friends will feel "obligated" to say something nice. The fact is, when I play in bands, there's always something that frustrates me. Either the lead singer isn't really that good, or the lead guitarist should stick to rhythm guitar, or something. I can be a jerk when it comes to music. Anyway, I play all of the instruments on most (but not all) of the videos we've posted. My friend Michael has a pretty good garage studio, and that's where we make the recordings. Vanny and DJ, of MyLot fame, are actually responsible for helping me organize the pictures (Vanny and I often argue) and posting the songs to YouTube. I'd have no clue how to do it myself. DJ is the "tech queen." Here's my latest. It's a rare "happy" song that I wrote while at a music retreat . It was raining the whole weekend, but we had a great time jamming anyway. Don't worry--none of us make any money off of this or other videos. So if you're feeling kind, slap a "like" on this (if you can) and leave a loving comment. My lower back hurts this morning and I need some strokes.

Heh heh. Strange things make me happy. Chickens, cows, and (less strange) happy children. I often take the kids I work with out into nature, and we often see cows and chickens. More seriously, I think animals have curative powers for troubled kids.

I hope you do make money off this. I am not against that, just hate greedy people. We all have to make a living and you sir offer a lot. You deserve to be compensated as well as Vanny and DJ for helping. Will check your song out now. I usually listen to while I write but post made me want to comment. Well done sir whether I like the song or not. I make bad jokes. You like country and I like punk, and the good country always gets mentioned in punk. So keep your head up because you doing it right.
@Shiva49 We first uploaded "A Moth Song" in November 2016. That time we did not use slides. I am not happy with some slides job that I did in Susy, and even Pancho & Lefty but I feel we have improved. It has been a learning experience for both DJ and I, though Pony is a task master. lol. He has very clear concept of what he wants which is not what I want, obviously. lol. He at first lets me get my way, and then keeps on nudging till he gets his way. SMH. There is no way you can slip in a slide that he does not want in some place. He will keep asking you to change till you give up. lol.
It is definitely up there, I think pony gives his best in sad songs...sad admission but true. He has sung the Last train from poor valley with so much of feeling. I would say singing wise that is Pony's best work. I personally like light songs to Take me back Tulsa would qualify.
Yeah..noticed. Thanks ..am feeling like that dog ..
