Solos and bandaids are for pussies

Aside from cutting the bejeezus out of my finger and then bleeding heavily enough to warrant taping a tampon to my hand, I've finally set up my recording studio and begun to use it. This song, "Ain't That Easy", is one I wrote years ago but never recorded until now. Listen and discuss amongst yourselves while I check to see if that flap of skin on the pad of my finger has stayed in place.

15 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':

More, more, MOOOOOOORRRRREEEEE! When will your CD be available for sale, missy??

And have you done any videos with your songs? I'd love to feature one on Sheik Yerbouti Friday.

HTGT - thank ya! The CD will be for sale when I get about 9 more songs recorded.

The only video I have with one of my songs is one with a short instrumental called "Git Down!" It's on YouTube here

I didn't listen to this as closely as I'd have liked to yesterday so I'm going to wait until I get home tonight. Maybe I'll remember to play it for Ichabod.

Hope your finger's doing better.

Duuude! That is awesome! Seriously! I hope you pursue this to a CD release complete with nubile groupies.

I was all happy until kranki said that about the nubile groupies. How 'bout old, fat, infirm groupies? Sign me up!
I love your voice. I'd buy your CD even if we weren't related.

OMG Katy
You have a great voice! I could imagine you singing bluesy tunses, too.

I find it awe inspiring when anyone I know can sing. Because I can't. Not at all.

Squirl - I have a real bandaid on the finger now...no more paper towel and scotch tape (although that did come in rather handy at the time).

Kranki - Thanks! I'm all for the groupies, especially if they can cook, too.

Susie - Oh, I'll take all groupies, so long as they aren't crazy and/or capable of hurting me. And thanks!

Sheryl - Thanks to you, also! I did enjoy singing blues tunes in the band. Maybe I'll have something similar by the time I get this project done.

Holy shit, Bucky!
*rapturous applause*

Hope your finger heals up soon. What did you do to make it turn into a geyser...and what strength tampon did you have to use in order to stop the bleeding?
Yes, I wonder about things like that. Especially when I learned they use tampons during wrestling matches for when the guy gets a nosebleed and they have to stop the flow (pun fully intended)before his next match to avoid disqualification.

You can use a shot of a tampon stuck to your finger as the album cover.

But anyway, that was really good. I am always delighted to hear you make music. Do you play drums or was that a drum machine? I'd like to learn more about home recording, I'm just too lazy and untalented.

Delurking to say, HOLY SHIT do I love your song! And your vocals are hella sexy.

Wow. VERY cool song, Bucky. You got some mad skeelz.

Squirl - *curtsy to Ichabod*

Joyce - actually, I used a paper towel and scotch tape, but if I hadn't had those handy, I'd have used a Super tampon.

Zombie - the drums are loops I bought for Garage Band (because I'm still too dense to figure out Pro Tools), and the rest is done with keyboards and vocals.

Eva - Thanks and welcome!

CKelli - mad skeelz enough to get some Long John Silver's?

Excellent, Ms. Bucky. I hope the finger you sliced wasn’t a guitar-playin’ finger.
