Not Too Hot
Happy rose in the sun
With temps in the 90’s, an occasional blustery breeze, and abundant rustling leaves, the last few days have been delightful.
We added a new song to the band repertoire last night. It is a strong beat blues I wrote to showcase John Harrison’s guitar playing skills.

I didn’t have lyrics when I was first writing it, just a melody and chords, but within a day or two, the muses introduced a couple of events that stimulated a memory of the train that passed through Alpine, Texas in the middle of the night.

Some of the memories coalesced into the lyrics I need for the new song. I wrote them down with only a couple of word changes, and viola, “The Midnight Train”.
I would like to say that we played the new song perfectly, last night, and that I can offer you a listen here and now. But I can't. The song needs to develop over a few weeks of being played by the band to fine tune it before we make a suitable recording.
I do have some video I took at the butterfly tent that I think you will enjoy.
