This just might be the best example of his great voice..
Gives me chills every time..
Oh yeah..Two more of my favorites..Marty had an outstanding voice..
What I like best about Faron was his crooner/jazzy style of phrasing..
Woman let go of my arm. One of the best lines I ever heard. He could drive too!
How "bout some modern country?
That was great!
I'm surprised no one has posted the one that's considered by many to be the greatest country singer of all times..No argument here from this old fart..
The Possum may not have had a pretty voice but he sure as hell could do genuine country..
I worked with Marty's half brother in the 80s. Very queer individual.
Yep. Step right up, come on in. How could we have missed him? I was gonna say more, but who am I to talk?
It seems to me that most country music for the last ten years or more is just pop or rock with a southern accent and a cowboy hat. After all, Taylor Swift started as country supposedly. WTF?
OTOH, I told my son (aged 34), my generation perfected rock’n’roll and yours f‘ed it up!
Or, maybe it’s like a friend of mine told me, “Steve, the world is changing and you are just old and don’t like it.”
A couple of the older country music gents my dad listened to when we was little
That's it exactly..Like I've said before, we tend to want to keep things as they were when we were young..Every little change in the music brings a bunch of older people complaining that it's being sabotaged..
If ya can't keep up then get the hell out of the way..
Well, Papa Joe, this one’s for you...
I was listening to my CCR collection one day and a light came on..I thought hell this country music. The more I listened the more country it sounded..
So I gathered up my acoustic instruments recorded a few of their tunes..
All acoustic strings..Banjo, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, guitar..
I did my best to copy everything..Same chord progression, same beat and tempo..And it worked..
I though well damn I've got something new here..Then came the truth. It had already been done..While browsing through the music section at Borders I found a CD of CCR music by some pros down in Nashville..It was all blue grass instruments played blue grass style..
My point is those CCR dudes were country boys just building on what they had heard their daddies and granddaddies play..
I feel like I would be cheating on myself if I didn't listen to new ideas..
I agree! I like all music.
Possum is probably my absolute favorite... He was my Pop's favorite too... Big surprise, right?
