Eh, I always sing terribly. As long as I'm having fun, I don't mind the listeners suffering!

Lynn (tuffy) told me once, that we're not trained pro singers. So basically we just enjoy playing and singing.
     In my family my oldest daughter told me once that I was the best singer. But it don't really matter.
     One of my grandma's would take us boys to  church with her, when we were little. I would be next to her during the singing and she would just let er loose. Even as a little kid I enjoyed how she put her heart in it.

      I wrote a melody and lyrics for a song called "Grandma, God, and guitars" it is mostly about her singing. I recorded that one and put it on the forum. The first version was with my Forum IV. Don't know where that recording is now.

      But I'll sing that little song too anyone who will listen. And I still enjoy it.

      Just like Lynn's song about his grandson FRANKIE (sp) Lynn wrote it and I think it's from his heart. I like it, when a singer puts their heart into their music.

        Perfect singing is pretty, but I'll take the gravely voice etc. Any day, if the singers heart îs in it.

Hey, if Dylan can, anyone can, right? (And, for the record, I like Dylan!)

I used to stand next to my dad in church and he sang in the most monotone voice! Which means every once in a while, he hit the right note... or a good harmony! Every once in a while...

BUT - he was there, and he was singing/worshiping.

Meanwhile, even though he couldn't carry a tune to save his life with his voice, he could whistle a tune like there's no tomorrow! Go figure!!!

Thanks L07. I pop over from time to time. I haven't been messing around with music much these days. Being an old man with a five year old keeps me hopping to and fro.

Georgia to Maine. Appalachian Trail.  Your moniker stuck with me once long ago when we were talking about where our user names came from.  A FIVE year old?  That's some busy days you've got going on.  But don't forget to teach him (her?) music.  That can be your excuse..."gotta surround the kid with music."

Ryler, yes indeed the moniker stands for Georgia to Maine. In 2003, a few days into my thru-hike, I met my wife at the Georgia/North Carolina border on the Appalachian Trail. We started hiking together there and onward to Maine and never stopped hanging out together. That is one thing I'll really miss out on doing with my son, since I can no longer backpack. I incurred a spinal cord injury in 2005 that put an end to that type of activity. My wife will have to teach the boy to be successful in the back country.

Busy days don't quite adequately describe how I feel being a 49 year old wobbly walking man, trying to keep up with the hyper energy of a five year old boy. I wouldn't change the exhaustion for anything else though. I feel blessed being able to be at home raising, educating, and enjoying time with my boy.

That's a beautiful way to meet!  Sorry to hear about the spinal injury.  I too have lost lots of my favorite ways to spend time due to injury/aging.  (I took this entire summer off of guitar playing to let tennis elbow heal.  Dr. appt. pending.) 

There's no love like the love of a parent for a child.  I'm glad you have that in your life, Jonathan.

 +1  I can relate, I was 42 when my youngest daughter was born and she was a real treat to raise.  Now, my wife and I are way up in our 60's and chasing after our 6 year old granddaughter we have custody of...  Wouldn't trade any of it, children make the world go 'round...

 Just watched Austin city Limits Hall of Fame. The one where Guy Clark and Townes Van Zant are inducted into the ACL Hall of fame.
 Dwight Yoakom hosted and it really was a gas. Lots of good players, singers and at the end all of them were on stage singing a Townes Van Zant tune. Very well done, from the song Lyle Lovett did at the start, (Guy Clark's first ever song) which was beautifull. Right to the end.
   I was about to turn ìn when it started, but Dwight introduced Lyle to sing a Guy Clark tune, and that caught my attention. So I ended up watching the whole show.
    It's a keeper.
