Scott, I think you had a typo. Did you mean tv show? Anyway tv shop is certainly a relic of the past. Thanks for the nice review, Tom


Yes Tom that was a typo. As soon as the song jump in it was like watching a very cool tv show....

You knocked this one out of the park - thanks for sharing!
Deryk, glad you liked it. Thanks, Tom

Super playing as usual

enjoyed the listen!

Hey Thanks for the nice words. Glad it struck a chord, Tom

An instant classic!! I was humming along by the second chorus. This is a song that would probably mean little to a teenage but means so much to us on the forum with the context and years to appreciate such a work of art! Could not be better!!! Take care. Greg

Great feel and ain't it the truth. Such relable imagery and a footstompin' buck dancing toe tapper with the bluegrass. I loved it Tom.

Great to hear a new one. Loved it. Some very nice guitar (you got some tab for that end part?) and a wonderful vocal.
Instantly likeable!

Super mix. Your vocals are truly crisp and clear. And cool harmonies.

Hot acoustic leads! Excellent listen.

That's how it's done son! Hot Damn!

That arrangement and performance was just killer. Your voice is always instantly identifiable in all the right ways. LOVED the harmonies. LOVED the leads. The intro, the ending. I mean...my God man! That was out of this world.

I also think those lyrics speak to anyone with life experience. wink

Thanks for sharing this!

The clarity of this mix is stunning. The stereo-stage is set really well and I found that if I focused my hearing, I could easily hear every instrument just as clearly as I could hear your singing. That's a pretty amazing accomplishment in my book! Your vocals sit perfectly in this stellar mix.

So yes... What a terrific song!

All the best,
Noel

Noel, Thank you so much for this stellar review. You made my day, Tom

Hello, Tom

Nice bluegrass song!
And great sentiment.
I agree with Janice & Bud.
"Ain’t no time to hurry on days that seemed so long
while life keeps getting shorter every day"
Ain't it the truth bro!
I feel like seeing a glimpse of my own life.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Ain't it the truth bro!

It's no secret J&B lived and breathed and played bluegrass for decades...so we feel qualified to say "AWESOME!"

Thematically the lyric/melody fits the genre very well. It doesn't sound like one of the old war horses and is certainly thought provoking.

You did a fine job of putting together an authentic sounding BG band and your acoustic is great...the picking and the tone.

And your vocals well deliver the feel of the song both lyrically and rhythmically. Nice phrasing and harmony.

Outstanding Mr Adams!

J&B

Well if anyone on this forum has bluegrass cred, it’s you two. So to get such a super review from you means a lot to me. Thanks, Tom

Thanks for this one Tom.
Very much suits my present state of mind.
Fantastically well done.
Reminds me of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
Cheers.

Now there’s a name we don’t often hear in the states. I had the original 45 record of Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport along with the companion Wobble Board. We had a lot of fun with that. Hadn’t thought of that in years! Thanks for the nice words,Tom

Josie, I wish I could see you do some of that flat footed buck dancing. I know if I tried I’d probably get hurt. Thanks for the nice words, Tom
