Very nice! Love the message of our dependence on our merciful Lord. I also really like the vocal counterpoint at the end.

Thanks, Rob. Please share it, if you like it. I have re-written the verses, so what is uploaded here is not the most current version. I don't have a recording of the updated version, though, and if anyone likes the original, I don't mind!

Thanks Rob..! Yeah, that feels nice. I'm actually glad summer is over and things can get back to normal....my ability to spend time here on the site has been limited for a couple months. However, I've cooked up some new song ideas that I'm anxious to begin work on. I've been doing quite a bit of woodshedding on my fingerstyle material for the holidays coming up. Nancy and I have some performances to do between now and the end of the year. So, back to work....thank God for music...yes?

This past Wednesday, my wife, Andrea, and I were blessed with the chance to meet and hang out with Stevie and Nancy Kuykendall. This was the first time ever that I've met someone with whom I've already created music. We drank coffee and talked about numerous things (yes, music was in there). I'm so glad we got to meet, and I'm thankful to Melody Fusion for an introduction that led to friendship!

Goedemorgen! Ah, no pics. I guess none of us thought of that, but Stevie will corroborate my story (I hope). Maybe the Starbucks in San Rafael has some security camera footage that can serve as proof of this visit. ;)

You do this style very well, though I suspect you're holding back in parts of the solo. Great job setting the Scriptures to melody.

Rob....I was hoping to evoke the flavor of a steel guitar with the melody laid out in double stops on this one....in keeping with a country swing

Thanks Slava...! The guitar I used on this one used to belong to the bass player for Buck Owens. An old "Epiphone Riviera" hollow body. I had never recorded with it before.....it surprised me on this song....!!

A Musicmaster bass? Haven't seen one of those in a while. I used to own a Mustang bass. Love those short-scale basses. Great playing, cool jazzy lick just before the slide comes in--and a very nice tone on that guitar!

Yo Rob....I actually do have a Mustang bass in the exact same color! It's late 60s...and the Musicmaster is early 70s. They have a certain sweet warmth and "bigness" that belies their size. I'm glad you caught that outside lick...I put it in just for you. You know me, gotta have at least one twisted phrase in there..!

Hey Rob! Love the track, the message for sure. Give it all up and over eh? There's something funky going on at the end of your track. They player says it's 3:26 long, but when it gets to the end, it keeps going with garbled sounds. Can you possibly check your track for funky stuff and re-upload? It is still happens I can ask for someone to look at it, but do that first please. Thank you!
