    Default Wrote me another song... and recorded it.

    Well, it's been the roughest ten months of my life - and that's saying something, I might add. I am really trying my best to stay afloat, but sometimes the tide and the waves don't cooperate.

    Anyway, I wrote this song one night, and I didn't have it in my to be able to revisit it until today. A dear friend - and fine musician and songwriter, I might add - dropped by today, and we got to talking and cheering each other up, and of course we picked on a few songs... and drank a lil whiskey. WL Weller whiskey, to be precise.

    Anyway, when he left, I remembered this song and decided to try and record it. I apologize for all the short comings I have as a singer and player, but this one is straight from the heart and the best I could do tonight.

    Eastman Parlor guitar - E1P-LTD model - and my voice went through a Rode NT1A. The guitar also went through an AKG P170 mic. The mando - an MIC Breedlove Crossover FF - went through the AKG mic.

    The song is called That Drink...

    I think it sounds terrific...and I really like the vocal delivery....reminds me of Terry Allen. (check him out....interesting cat)
    Mando sounds great as well as the guitfiddle.

    Good job man!

    Oh my word, I can't thank you enough for the kind and supportive words.

    This guy said to me, You used to be funny. And all I could say was, I'm sorry I let you down. I'm sorry that my heart is broken and that I'm not whom I used to be. But I'm working hard at getting back to that guy. I promise I am. So sorry.

    It's like that Mitch Hedberg joke, You can't please all the people all the time, and last night, all those people were at my show.

    Story of my life for the past year. But music has been the one bright light that has been showing me the way!

    You create great songs, Dave. Lyrics and arrangements are very powerful.
