Hi Kenny,

Not feeling well, so my replies are a bit brief today. Glad you liked the song and those two lines. And yeah, the Katrina reference was on of my favorite lines, too. I wondered if I should explain to those folks not from the US. But, none of them have asked. Thanks so much!

Alan

Alan,

This is fantastic!!! I had no idea that this side existed to your music making. The sound that is coming out of my speakers right now is gritty, toe-tapping and oozing competence in stereo! And well matched by excellent vocals.

This is definitely one to be proud of smile

All the best to you and Di,
Noel

Thanks so much, Noel. Much appreciated. I don't really have the voice for this genre but I love playing it. I love the drive of Shuffle Blues and the lyrics are usually pretty entertaining, bordering on comical at times.

So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again. Di sends her best in a hug. Best to you.

Alan U& Di

"I got a woman and she's a whole lot meaner than me
And I’m so mean I can scare the green straight off a pea
I'm not afraid of anything and she scares the hell right out of me"

Fantastic lyric - I think I know that gal.

Yet another great tune, Al-David! Right from the get go, this one grabs you by the collar and forces you to listen - I love it smile It's attention grabbing, but not overbearing. Great guitar work on it; the mix is on point too. Thanks so much for sharing!

Thank you, Dan! I'm glad those lines work for you. My grandfather use to say (He died in 1966) "I'm completley and totally fearless, but your grammy scares the hell out of me." That';s the origin of that verse.

Thanks again. Have a great weekend.

Alan
