In celebration of seeing the hogtops, I'm releasing my home-hack version of "Waitin".
Thanks Bluesman67 for directing me to reverbnation.com.  I tried uploading to putfile.com and kept getting miffed.

So here it is:

http://www.reverbnation.com/torsoboy  (it's the only song there...)

This is an awesome site.  I was up and running in probably 2 minutes or less, no joke.

Caveat emptor:  I'm nowhere close to the level of Flatlander and his now classic "The Wait".

But I figure what the heck...toss it out there.

Again for reference, the original is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKnVBzxmhcw

I tried to follow the crazy phrasing of the lyrics.  I also clearly can't hit some (all? ) of the notes...and I botched it big-time at the end but left it in anyway.  I was going to try to overdub some mandolin on it, but chickened out.

Oh...and it's played on my silver oak (with old strings, sorry).

Grin and bear it.

Lyrics below:
Waitin (adapted from Willin)

My top’s warped from the dry, the action is low
There’s a better one out there dontcha know…and I’m still…waitin’

On the forum late one night, saw a post with a thousand replies
A post…caught my eye

I’ve been from rosewood to koa, ovangkol to silver oak
Nearly every kind of Larrivee that’s ever been made
Every one was a pleasure to play
But if you give me Italian spruce or hog
I’ll be out of this fog
That’s why I’m waiting…for the Forum 3

They fought over specs night after night
But came to agreement from the left and the right
And now…they’re waitin

I couldn’t afford it, and sat on the fence
But to not make an order just didn’t make sense
And now… I’m waitin

 Orders came from New York and the Carolinas…Scotland and Winnepeg
Now 78 Forums are going to get made
Mine just happens to be number 58
Just give me an L S 3 M T
With Herringbone purfling
It’s worth waiting…Thanks Ricky!

Thank you...probably won't be changing my name to "Voice Boy" however.
I am trying hard to improve (that's part of why I did this...kind of a pushing the boundaries thing...taking chances among friends)
