Comments left on both songs on SC.  BGD would love to hear your take on Mother.

I noodled with it some but failed to get it to a place I was happy with.   Hopefully once work settles down in mid march I'll be able to take another crack.

AWESOME everyone!!!!

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

I enjoyed both versions Mojo. Comments left on Soundcloud.  Thanks for sharing them.

beamer, just read your comments on sound cloud yes oil field trash is an original.  that first line had been sitting in my note book for awhile and then back in may the project I was on was cutting back and inspired me to finish it while I was waiting to find out if and where I would be working next

and thanks to everyone who left comment on cloud I really appreciate them

I am all behind this month but I have just managed to record Country Roads, sadly I will not get Amie done. Finger picked Nashville guitar and strummed baritone ukulele played by me, bass and drums courtesy of Band-in-a-Box. After 3 hours of unsuccessful attempts to upload to Soundcloud I have had to use Youtube:

Re: February 2017 FSOTM - Amie - Take me Home, Country Roads

Excellent work Roger. You continue to amaze me by getting the most out of biab.  I am terrible with it!

Re: February 2017 FSOTM - Amie - Take me Home, Country Roads

I liked the arrangement Roger, but could barely hear your wonderful vocals in the mix.

Re: February 2017 FSOTM - Amie - Take me Home, Country Roads

Finally caught up with everyone's effort for February`s FSOTM and wow awesome efforts by everyone.  I have left comments on soundcloud for you.

Rickyjack ......... so great to see you back performing.   Your cover of `Amie` was so good, the harmonicia once again just adds to it, great guitar, vocals, the whole package, awesome!

BGD and Zurf .......` Country Road`..... great you two got together and sounds like your having a blast, just how music should be, fun and enjoyable.  I found myself smiling all the way through listening to you both.  Loved the fancy guitar bit at the end too.

BGD and Zurf .....`Amie` .... I sure wish i could play guitar like that!  Great vocals there, i really enjoyed listening to this and was busily playing the drums on my desk along with you both.

Mojo01 ........`Amie` ...... Ditto to what the others said, great vocals and guitar, i really enjoyed listening to you.
Mojo01 .........`Country Road` ....... You sang this really well, played it well on guitar, great listening.

Roger ........... `Country Road` ...... this song really suited you and I liked how you put it all together musically as well as the video to go with it .... worked the whole package (even if the car is driving on the wrong side of the road lol)

Ok I think that is everyone, hope i haven`t missed anyone out.
