well, i'm in almost a week of 'break-ing' and already songs are coming to mind for me to learn. ha! say you're gonna take a break and here they come.
i shut the kiddy gate on them tho' for right now...i've been prepping for a concert this Saturday. i have been thinking about doing older music as opposed to covering more contemporary stuff...say for example, i like the song 'i can tell that we are gonna be friends.' by jack white....also covered by jack johnson. it's a fun song. it's got a great 'child-likeness' to it. but, i don't think i'll do it. why?
because i'm not sure i could 'add' anything to it...both of the other dudes' version of it are great fun. i'm not sure i'd 'bring anything to the table on that one...lots of other songs like that as well. but, when it comes to other folk tunes, or blues tunes, or hillbilly tunes, i feel like i can 'make it my own.' i wanna stay with that feeling. it lets me cover a song and still feel 'original or authentic' about it.
also, the pictures just keep getting cranked out. Jenny and i have started the collaborative blog, but i'm beginning to wonder about posting regular pictures here as well (as if i don't already). in my 'frittered' thinking, i was even considering doing another blog, but i think that is more than i can handle.
