NOW IT'S SATURDAY...
Yeah, I think I've set a new low for lame titles. Truth is, I've been too lazy to post much as of late and I'm way low on good ideas. That, and I spend far too much time on myspace feeding my unfeigned narcissism. I do get a kick out of people on there that post messages for Alan Jackson to come to their site and check out their music. Does anybody really think that Alan Jackson rolls out of bed first thing in the morning and thinks, man I've got to go check and see if I have any new friends I can help on myspace? The music business sucks too. I mean, if you spent 15 years trying to become a doctor, eventually they'd let you be one even if you weren't that good. Oh well, there's always tomorrow. I just can't believe Alan Jackson hasn't written me back yet...

You never know. You might just write a song with "that hook" that becomes a hit. It happens...could happen for you. At least you have the persistence to keep trying.

RT, thanks and I hear ya. Sometimes there just seems to be a really fine line between persistence and "wasting your time" ;)

Joecool, funny you should mention that. I was at Andy's recording somthing and I played him a new song and asked if he thought it was too commercial sounding and he was like "Dude...if it would make us some money I'd sell out in an achy breaky heartbeat"...

Oh, and still no word from Alan Jackson...thats just weird...

Don't sweat the blogger's block. Happens to all of us. When I get that way, I either garner suggestions from commenters or post a pic of some fabulous babe.

But that's just me.

Thanks Wyatt, both excellent suggestions. I'm leaning toward the latter as I have already done quite a lot of internet research on the topic...

Finally...Sweet! I might not have much time to post now that I'm going to be hanging out writing the hits with Alan Jackson. I knew finishing college would have been a waste of time...

Just write something in "C" that mentions girls, dogs, a tractor, and a big truck.

See, that wasn't so hard...

jt,

I thought Jerry Jeff Walker already did that? Oh, yeah, that was was about Mom, prisons, drinking and a train.

You could write about your cousin dropping trou in the middle of the store and how traumitized all the women were!(No, Stevie, you won't hear the end of this!) I Dropped My Pamts on the Floor of the Store And Was Told Don't Come Back!? So many possibilities---who was the guy that did the song about the squirrel in church? Ray Stevens? There's been alot of silly songs written that we've had to listen to forever!

Sorry I've been out of pocket, my comuters been acting all weird this week.

JT, I've tried most of that except not in the key of "c". I usually write in d minor...it's the saddest of all keys...

Linda, I just got what you were talking about. Hadn't been over to First with Flair and I'm still laughing so hard my face hurts...

G-chord is good. It is my favorite.

It seems to me, though, that all those good "tears and beers" songs are written in C, and all the good "train/jumping in the river" songs are in E...

But I play Bluegrass, so I capo everything, and it's all in G to me...ha!

Besides, I pick on a mandolin a little bit too, and D minor sucks to get...
