Hello all you young and old songwriters and welcome to the new year 2016.

I plan on spending more time completing the songs I started and did not finish last year.

So write on!

Hi Tom.  Just wanted to drop my 2 cents worth on your question: "Do songwriters often have difficulty with coexistence between old songs and current loves?"

I personally wouldn't have any difficulty, but I know the "new woman" most of the time would. (I don't mean just "my" woman, I mean women in general).  I only have a couple of old songs that I really like and am proud of and still like to play that were about old loves.  To honor my wife, I just re-wrote the lyrics.  Didn't bother me at all.  Made the songs fresh for me and my wife likes them so everybody's happy.  8-)  I'll have to post one of them here soon once I find time to record it.

But ya, that's my 2 cents worth on that.  8-)

Got 3 new family members. The Taylor GS Koa is for inspiration and songwriting, live gigs and my all arounder. The Sigma 000R-28VS is for fingerpicking ( best guitar I've picked on ) and recording. The Yamaha LS6 is for busking, backup guitar and recording. New album coming soon :)

Phil Manuel's mention of Townes Van Zandt reminded me of this song I wrote several years ago as a tribute to him. I have always been a big fan and wrote this after reading two different biographies. Patrick Sharpe did a wonderful job performing the song and made it more than it would have been otherwise in my opinion.

Here's a link to Part 1 my recent interview with US Podcaster, Blogger, Streaming Service and all round great supporters of independent musicians Middle Tennessee Music or MTM. The full interview will be podcast at some point April I think along with some exclusive stuff. It is not so much about guitars as it is about songwriting, the music business, independent musicians but it might interest some.

You can also find it on my website

Yesterday, I was sitting around with my guitar, thinking about Townes Van Zandt, as it was his birth date.  My muse came to me and gave me this song, simple chords, and the lyrics just flowed.  So, I'm posting here in honor of an artist who continues to inspire me, the late great Townes Van Zandt.

Hi Folks, thought I would post this tune for your fine ears to pick apart. Its off the new album from my band The Straw Men. Leave some feedback please, its arranged for acoustic guitar (capo on 5th, tuned to standard E) and bouzouki. Hope you all enjoy it.
