That was my theme song for many years. Thanks for keeping it alive Dan.

The sound on Jacqui's and my set was so awful I can't listen to it.

Thanks for calling attention to this, Dan (other Dan). The vocals came out a little quiet in the mix, but you can get the idea from this, anyway. This was from last year's Getaway - I sang it for Kendall.

The instrument, for them as wants to know, is a laud - sort of a 12 string Spanish mandola. Nick Apollonio built this one for me a couple of years ago.

Captain, don't you dare say that. You will make me come there and kick your butt. A lesser person wouldn't even have tried and it was fine ... and while I am on a roll ... pick up that guitar .. You are a master and the guitar can sing for you my dear friend .. There is a world of music you can make with your hands that most of us cannot hope to achieve. Pick some things with me and Will and the rest of us ..
Do some great old folk classics but let the guitar do the melody .. Jacqui wants to hear you play it .. I want to hear you play it .. we all do my friend ... pick it up again "deal"

Love ya
Dan

As opposed to "Newe Olde" England? "Special Clearence"? "Slightly Used"? "Cheaper By The Pound"?....

Old New was the way I first learned it, and for years heard everybody sing nothing but the "Dear Old England" words. A pleasure to hear it again and so well sung, to boot. Thanks, you made the Old New again...

When I lost my voice I also lost the will to play guitar. Then along comes Jacqui who keeps kicking my ass to pick it up again, now you,Dan, and others. Well, I'll have you know I do play it. This year I played it at New Years and a couple of times since then.
Funny how a dram of the "water of life" makes me want to play. Maybe that's the only time I think I sound good.

Dan and Will, I would be honored to pick along with you at the Getaway.Thanks for asking.

One of my lifes heroes is the greatest of all artists Renoir.

Suffering from severe Rheumatoid Arthritis In 1904, Renoir weighed only 105 pounds and was barely able to sit. By 1910 he could not even walk using crutches and became a prisoner in his wheelchair. His hands were completely deformed, like claws of a bird. A gauze bandage was used to prevent his fingernails from growing into the flesh. Renoir was unable to pick up a paintbrush at this point and it had to be wedged between his fingers. Yet he continued to paint everyday.


"One must from time to time attempt things that are beyond one's capacity." ~ Pierre-Auguste Renoir

There were episodes when Renoir was completely paralyzed. He would allow the attack to subside, then continue where he left off at his easel. Renoir had an easel where each canvas could be rolled up like a woven product in a loom. Therefore he could cope with larger formats even though he had to sit in his wheelchair and could only move his arm in short, sudden motions to thrust the paintbrush forward. Renoir said once to an art dealer who was observing him paint, "You see, you don't even need a hand for painting!"

In 1912, another attack of rheumatoid arthritis left Renoir's arms paralyzed and left him unable to paint. Renoir took up sculpture but used somebody elses hands to form the clay according to his instructions. Sculptures were created which had never been touched by Renoir's hands but are works that came from his mind. Renoir would direct his assistant to "take a little more off there" or "make it rounder" until he was pleased with how the piece looked. By 1915, Renoir was carried to his easel every morning. Revived by his work, he was able to create paintings once again in the few years before his death. Some of his greatest art works were created at a time when he was completely disabled.

If that 12-string of yours doesn't get played, you should be brutally flogged - by a lovely woman, if necessary, but brutally flogged nonetheless.

Unless you're just sick of it. Then you should give it to a worthy person. I may or may not be worthy, but I'm available...

Captain
I am an ok guitar player. I am not even a good guitar player just an ok guitar player. But I cannot sing "greensleeves" as pretty as my guitar can and I do not have your skills my dear friend. Imagine what you could do with this.

You old fraud! I'd give my front seat in hell to be able to play Greensleeves like that! I've always wondered at the origin; did she have a bad cold and no hanky?

I don't have your skill captain, I heard you play .. I fake it but you are the real deal.. I also know how hard it is my friend when something terrible happens like what you went through. I put my guitar down for 17 years .. I cannot feel the strings after my neck injury and I stopped singing also. But there is a comeback .. and you can make your guitar sing my dear friend far better than I can. And if you don't have a classical and want to try that I will give you one of mine , just let me know

You are too generous! I'd love to have your old classical.
Now, tell me what you have of my works and I'll fill out the collection with what you don't have. You have started a "Giving War" hehehe

(Other) Dan, your guitar work sure sounds good to me! I like the Latin flavor you've gotten into Greensleeves. "Las Mangas verdes," perhaps?

And as for you, Kendall, you keep playing that guitar. I've got a a kid here who's just barely getting to the age where he'll remember things for the rest of his life, and one of the things I want him to remember is seeing you play. He already loves your videos.

Nothing ever stops changing - our craft of music has always changed, through our lives, sometimes because we've grown in it, and sometimes just because we've changed. Some of the changes are not what we would have expected, or chosen - but that doesn't mean the music is dead. Beautiful voices are a dime a dozen - some of them worth listening to, and some not. You know how to make a song or a story real, as well as anybody else I know and better than most, and your voice had nothing to do with that.

Dan

Kendall,
Dan has requested that you bring your 12 string to his mini concert on the 7th. OK?

Kendall, you are one of Austin's music heroes and I'd really like him to see and hear you play in person some time.
