Is anyone safe on beer's?....I have a problem being that safe...as I take a swig off a beer.

How bout "A NEW CAR"?

All kidding aside now. If he asked me for a set of string, that would be fine.
I just like the song and am looking forward to playing around with it.

I suppose I just don't like to hear my self singing and prefer to hear the guitar or it could just be that I don't have a clue what im doing when it comes to recording. but I do truly appreciate the input and will attempt to raise the voice level on my future recordings. thanks for the positive comments

You've got a great tune there. I enjoyed the heck out of playing along with you on it.
I'll throw some beer's your way if you let me put it up on soundcloud after I get it down a bit better and maybe add in some harmonica.
I play regularly with 5 others, just for fun, and I would like to bring this song into the group also. I'm sure they will like it.

Good morning Bill.

I think the email thing may have been corrected. Fingers crossed.

Good picture and sound for $100. I'm going to look one up for myself.

It sure beats this little camera I use for skype. Thanks for the heads up.

I agree with NELA on that one Bill. It seems to add feeling to a song.

It spices up a three chord song.

I'm glad you finally made it back home......Now stay there.

If anyone's interested, Bill doesn't have a German accent. I thought he might after hearing him refer to himself as a German boy. He sounds like he is from the south for sure.

I had the pleasure of talking to Dondra on the phone, what a sweetheart....It sounds like Bill has a good one there.

I just wish I lived closer. If I did I would go over and musicate the heck out of them.

Take care friend.

P.S.  If you make your songbook public I would like to check it out.

Good to see you back in here Bill.

Hey Bill....Do you feel the love?

I really do miss you here.

Give Dondra a hug for me and take care of yourself friend.

Hey friend...It's good to see you back.

I just received an email form Bill.

He is a bit busy with some medical issues with Dondra at present.
From the sound of things he doesn't have time to visit this site right now.

You can bet your E strings that he will be back musicating soon.

If you're so inclined you might throw some prayers his and Dondra's way.

Slowing it down helped, in my opinion.

I think the jest of the song is something we can all relate to...we are all human...I hope so anyhow.

I look forward to your next song.

Yeah...I'll comment.
The human hormonal urges and the consequences.

I admire your ability to put words down in such a way..real life drama.

I like it better as a poem rather than a song as suggested.
Just my opinion.

Don't stop writing songs...I wish I could.

I played it before I listened to in and gave it a bluesy touch.

I like it... It might be good on the harp also.

Thank you for that.

Good song. You made it sound great.
Nice sounding guitar and voice.

Very good.

You have a lovely voice.

I like your version of this song. Well played.

.......And the crowd went wild......

I don't remember you posting that before Bill.

Hey, that's a real toe tapper.I liked it.
I could just see people dancing their socks off to that one.

Thanks for putting it up here Bill.

I had never thought of doing breathing exercises. I think they would benefit my singing and harp playing.

I have noticed over the years that I don't have the lung capacity I used to...along with the hair turning gray and falling out, hearing and eye sight diminishing and other things I can't think of..oh yeah memory.

Thanks for the tip buddy.

Sooo I can't sleep, get up about 2am, check chordie and all my past posts are there. I come back an hour later and they are gone.
                       Strange?....I think so.

Hello dino.

I was thinking maybe a mod or admin would see my post. My fingers are crossed.

I would like very much to go to Las Vegas for a chordie jam. My responsibilities might get in the way of that happening. Then again the stars and the moon might just line up and I could get away.

I'm in Redding, so it would be quite a drive for me. If I were to fly I would have to drive to Sacramento to catch a flight...Maybe if I started saving my pennies.....

I have noticed that the font on songs I print has change within the last year.
It is not as bold as it used to be.
Is there a way I can change it?

I see how to make it bigger or smaller at the top of the page but that doesn't fix the problem I'm seeing.

My old eyes need help.


It is a bold font until I hit print, then It wimps down.

Yes..Keep it Bill.

It seems you have made some good friends here.
It was given to you with respect.
Accept it with honor.

Hello Roger,

I was more curious than anything else. I can live without them.
I noticed that the posts I put up today are not showing either.

I mainly wanted to make sure I hadn't done anything wrong.

Thanks for you reply.
