Jerry Reed-Today Is Mine

Beautiful song by a wonderful talent. Jerry Reed is probably one of the most under rated guitarists and vocalist that was ever recorded in Nashville. Although he is gone, his music should not be forgotten.

Jerry brings us an important message about cherishing each day (and what a gift it is)! Listen close to these powerful lyrics that he penned back in 1968.

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Simple Man lyrics and music video

simple man lynyrd skynyrd

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Simple Man lyrics

Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say.
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day.
Take your time… Don’t live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass.
Go find a woman and you’ll find love,
And don’t forget son,
There is someone up above.

(Chorus)
And be a simple kind of man.
Be something you love and understand.
Be a simple kind of man.
Won’t you do this for me son,
If you can?

Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

(Chorus)

Boy, don’t you worry… you’ll find yourself.
Follow you heart and nothing else.
And you can do this if you try.
All I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

(Chorus)

Guitar Players Only!! Forum Post Unique Gibson Guitar

A guitar I no longer possess.

It’s a Gibson prototype. There was a switch that split the coils on the rhythm and lead pick-ups, so you could switch between a Strat and Les Paul sound.

It has a nice, single-piece maple top, and tuners with flip-out cranks. It also had tuning knobs on the bridge.

Ibanez Artcore AGS83BZ

Ibanez Artcore AGS83BZ

Picked this up on a recent trade. Very nice sounding and playing instrument.

Only problem I found with it was a slight twang popping off one of the frets on the low E. Easy fix by adjusting the bridge. I was really surprised at the action and tone of this guitar. The little Pathfinder amp does not do justice. Ran it through the computer with a computer amp program and added some distortion and a little tremolo and wham, awesome sound.

It is for sale at this time. The whole rig, $500.00 bucks.

Peace! SDRR.

Layla (unplugged version) guitar

Layla unplugged 2 Eric ClaptonI remember the first time I saw Clapton performing this song on MTV Unplugged. That was back in the 80’s, If I remember correctly. I recall not being too excited about the song, and thinking about how much better the original is.

It seems like this version has become the standard for the song. Whenever you mention “Layla” to anyone these days, they immediately think about the unplugged version. Either way, Eric Clapton and Layla are part of rock legend.

I like it more these days, especially when I play it on guitar. (gettin slow in my old age).

Blue On Black – Acoustic Guitar

Blue on BlackThanks to Pam, Susan, and Joe for getting me started practicing this song on my guitar this past Saturday night. After listening to it, It got stuck in my head. Blue On Black is a song that my band I,  (when we still played often), used to play “back in the day”, when the tune first made the top ten. We always did the acoustic version and I still haven’t learned the solo part yet. Our lead guitar player was Joey Stason at the time and he could burn that solo up man, I mean, he hit every Kenny Wayne Shepherd lick, then some. I lost track of Jason when he went to Iraq with the Marines in 2001.

Free play or download in box.net. (Links to the right).

Enjoy

The song can be played with 4 chords, mainly in progression with one break.

Chords are D, C, G and A. All modified.
The “A” is played at the break during the end verse of the chorus.

Link for Blue on Black lyrics.

Other than that I am not going to get any further into it. I ain’t here to give a lesson, I am here to write about it.

Peace!
