My New Three String

      I picked up my new custom handmade three string cigar box guitar today. Hand crafted by Scott who just moved here from Nashville. You too can have one of these beauties by contacting Scott who is registered on Bowling Green Craigslist. I have the acoustic version, they also come in electronic.

Chord Charts

Above and beyond talent on a given instrument, professional session musicians possess a set of skills that makes them uniquely equipped to handle the very specific demands of the recording studio. First and foremost, session musicians are able to listen to a song and write a chord chart very quickly - usually after one or two listens to the song. Not only does this take the pressure off the client, who might not have the theory background to do this, but it also gives the musicians the ability to quickly grasp the contours of a given song so they can play it correctly and with feeling right away.  In Nashville, charts are written using a number system that very simply and elegantly allows the musicians to play the song in any key - usually depending on the voice of the demo singer - without having to re-write the chart. And speaking of which, playing in any key is another one of the skills that all pro studio musicians posses .

Old School

 I ran across a fellow writer and musician yesterday who goes by the name of B.H. After we signed each others non-disclosure agreement he pulled out a notebook and pen while I went to the car and brought back my notes and a pencil. We had a good talk about different things, and I noted that his Harley looked old school. "Well, it is an '02," he said. How did '02 get to be old is the thought that came to mind. We talked for a bit longer and went our ways.                  On the way home it occurred to me that it would be real easy for the two of us to sit on the porch, sip some lemonade or ice tea and trade stores. It also passed across my mind that he reminded me of Chris Rea.  B.H., this one's for you.

A Dead Rabbit, The Public Defender's Office and DQ

Jimbob and I were taking a walk when we spotted this dead rabbit and decided to investigate.

 Just about then a patrol car sped by us on a mission so we kept on walking along.

And then, another black and white came along.
  We didn't want to wind up like Rattlesnake and Sam.

Here I am with Christina and a Deputy

Jimbob's not real good at catching rabbits, but he does have some connections, so we went to visit Christina at the Justice Center for help in case anyone thought we had killed someone's pet rabbit.

She introduced us to a first-rate defense attorney by the name of Diana who told me everything would be ok.

Diana knows her stuff and she made me feel a whole lot better!
We felt so good after that, we stopped by Dairy Queen to get one of their famous and free "Pup Cup" treats.

Here we are at the DQ Drive-through
I loved my Pup Cup!

Our human granddaughter Tori took our pictures there.

Our new book "The Adventures of Jimbob and the City Beagles" is now on for only $2.99
