Re: SUGGESTIONS: OCTOBER 2017 FEATURED SONG OF THE MONTH

UK -  I'll get around to it.

USA - Given that it's underwater, I recommend a category. Any song by a Texas songwriter.  Some possible folks: Willie Nelson, Bob Wills, Robert Earl Keen, Slaide Cleaves, Gene Autrey, Rodney Crowell, The Big Bopper, and my favorite... Guy Clark. There are literally hundreds more.  There's something in the drinking water that the rain water can't flush away.

Granted B chord amnesty by King of the Mutants (Long live the king).

Re: SUGGESTIONS: OCTOBER 2017 FEATURED SONG OF THE MONTH

US - Texas Flood.

Re: SUGGESTIONS: OCTOBER 2017 FEATURED SONG OF THE MONTH

If we want a specific song, Tornado Time In Texas by Guy Clark.

Still thinking about UK. Does Cat Stevens count as UK?

Re: SUGGESTIONS: OCTOBER 2017 FEATURED SONG OF THE MONTH

UK song - Father & Son by Cat Stevens.  I think he was in the US when it was recorded, but hopefully you'll allow it.  I've been helping my dad through the aging process a bit, and the song has taken new meaning for me these past months.

One, two.... as many as you like (I think).  The purpose is somewhat to get folks to "stretch their legs" a bit and perhaps get off "the beaten path" so to speak.

I did like your Jim Croce rendition (same chords I use) and the second time through I played along.  I fingerpicked and it sounded like a good duet, right up to the part where you used an A where I transition through C#, F#m, A..... I think my timing slipped (stumbled).  Thinking I might use your rendition as a backing track and mix in mine (as a duet) and see what happens..... if you've no objection.  I'll send you a copy of the finished recording for your approval. It's been awhile since I have done any recording, so patience please.
Thanks;
