The basic idea for "The Secret's In My Flour" hit me about 30 years ago (yeah I'm showing my age just a bit). The vocal idea was/is inspired by the legendary songsmith Harry Chapin. I don't normally write murder ballads but this is definitely in that vein, but not in the traditional "Bluegrass" sense where a spurned lover is done in. It's an odd song with the lyrical content written the same night as "Right Back At You" (another song about death...go figure) which also appears in my "jukebox" on this site.
In the past two weeks I have added 4 brand new songs. I'm going to let them ride for a while before I decide to post more (though I am still in the middle of the recording process of countless others!). I hope y'all will give them a listen and maybe post a comment or two as to how you feel about them. ThanXO! And happy listening. "With hope and reflection." -Slim
I am dealing with the changes my life has put in my path, and writing down everything that comes into my mind. You never can tell where your next great idea will come from or exactly what may interest those who actually listen (such as The Fores, Steve Inglis and Chuck Brunicardi immediately come to mind), but I love you all. And in the words of Gordon Lightfoot, "The song that you sing should not be too sad, and be sure not sing it too slow." With hope and reflection," -Slim
Getting through my final Open Mic night in Abilene, TX was not an easy thing to do, and those familiar with my condition/situation read the pain on my face no matter how well I tried to mask it in a smiling, brave face. Thanks to those that were able to show up for my last go 'round here XO!
I will be playing one last open mic night in Abilene, TX for a good long while (it looks like). I don't know when I will be back this way. Tennessee is calling me back.
Thank you for all your support via fanning me, the kind words in your messages to me and all the wonderful comments on my page. Thus for all the love and support: "Right Back At You!" XO! -Six
