I'm learnin' a new song (actually 4) for my country band. The more involved I get with the band, the more I'm finding I totally dig this style of music. I know some of the diehards don't even consider what my band plays to be country music. That's okay though. I like it. My bandmates like it. The folks that come to see us like it.

 

He pushed me

I never really paid attention to Dixie Chicks or any modern female country artist until joining this band. There's some really cool stuff out there (though it probably makes traditionalists shudder when I say this). We're also doing songs by Trick Pony, Wynonna Judd, Gretchen Wilson, Sugarland and others. It's just fun music that puts smiles on peoples faces.

Please oh please, for the love of God, tell me you're not learning "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" or "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy". I know these two songs are very popular but IMO are the corniest and cheeziest country songs i've ever heard. :rolleyes: However I'll admit I'm not a fan of newer country, save for a few artists such as Brad Paisley and Dwight Yoakum.

 

Really all that matters TBroom is you're having fun and the crowd gets into it! :cool:

I'd love to find a good country band to play in as long as I wasn't required to wear a cowboy hat. CW bands aren't real popular round these parts. I'm too old to play high energy rock and "leave it all on the stage" if done correctly and have done the 50's, rockabilly thing to death already. I especially like the Bakersfield sound, (Derailers, Tractors, Yoakam, etc.). I guess what it boils down to is great music is great music and you'll be gigging all the time if you can get people dancing to it.

Shoot, man! I thought you were going to tell us about the trip you and your wife took to New Orleans.

 

How can a guy band do Dixie ChiCks songs?

 

You'll really appreciate the genre when you start doing Allison Krause songs. See if you can keep up with Barry's upright licks.

My Point?

 

Why do you need me to explain it to you? You just made it for me again, using a different genre.

 

Don't forget where the music you like came from and who played it before it got turned into a dogpile of producer driven corporate {censored}. Both country and R & R.

 

Thanks, thats my point.

You're free to wax nostalgic Tim.

 

I don't dismiss music from folks like Robert Johnson or Buck Owens, but I also don't dismiss today's music. Times change. I think it would suck if all the music today sounded like it did 30, 40, 50 or 60 years ago. Folks that dig music from back then are free to recreate it and play it to their hearts content.

 

Call it what you will, but many, many people like what you call a "dogpile of producer driven corporate {censored}". I like the Dixie Chicks. My kids like Good Charlotte. While you're certainly entitled to your comments, they are a tad bit insulting...don't you think?

We have a set of country tunes that include "Goodby Earl" and "Let 'er Rip". We usually get a good response out of both of these songs, abd they can be learned in about 10 minutes. G. Wilson's "I'm Here for the Party" gets 'em off their seats, too.

Sounds like a bass...


I'm not good at describing a basse's tone, so I'm not much help. Lug owns one of these badboys...maybe he can post a clip.

 

 

These are kinda old so the kwality is a bit iffy but you get the idea.
