[updated:LAST EDITED ON Apr-26-06 AT 06:28 AM (EST)]Those are cool,Zak! Kind of a cool "archive" look to the video, with the red tones. Those are sum good foot tappin' boots you got there,too. Nothin' purer than that one-man sitdown or standup slide blues. You've found a good blues voice for yourself ,without sounding like yer somebody else.

I love it. I'm still trying to figure out why you hate your voice.
Come tour in New Jersey.

I do believe I am now a Zak fan. I really like that Banty Rooster song, I think I'm going to have to learn that. Is that in open D?

Open G. The other tune is also open G, but capo'd to A.



Glad you enjoyed 'em.

Really enjoyed that zak. I also must add that you shouldnt get down on yourself about your voice. Its your voice. No one else can sing like you. You sounded great.

A few months back when he first put up music, most of his posts were prefaced with "and I know my voice is horrible.."
Never said I agreed with him. Sooooooo much better than alot of the cookie monster blues vocals out there. It's real!

I've been playing guitar for a long time....but singing is a relatively new thing for me. I had to overcome some serious hangups before I cpuld even try it in front of someone, and it took even longer to be able to try it without drinking a dozen beers to get over the jitters. Now I can actually get up in front of an audience alone and do it...but I am not even remotely close to feeling as comfortable as I do playing electric guitar in a band context, which is what I do most of the time. Having no bass and drums to hide behind is a whole different story!

I know it's just a matter of persisting and practicing, but vocally I am nowhere near where I wish I was. Come to think of it, I'm nowhere near where I wish I was playing guitar either, but at least I've had a big head start doing that...I'm grateful for all the encouragement.

I know what you mean, Zak, I used to be a band guy myself. Getting up there alone takes some guts, but to me it's all worth it to have the freedom of playing alone.

You can change chords and stuff on a whim just like the old guys used to do. This is what gives much of the original early blues tunes a hypnotic quality that I love. Listen to Mississipi Fred, just to take one example. Totally magnificent, off the cuff feeling to everything he does.

It's good that you have started doing solo gigs - your stuff shines, man, voice and guitar. Thanks for linking.

Cheers,

David.
