    Anything with a bit of country blues does it every time man took about 3 sec for the big cheesy grin on my face to appear brilliant and as only you can do :)

    The Bard of Looperman does it again. Three listens! Can't help it but whenever I hear that bass pattern and that drum beat I just think Johnny cash. But it's perfect. Nice warm fuzz guitar. Highly entertaining listen man.

    HOW, just how that guitar is sounds soooooooo firmly vintage? Damn its a superb work!

    The guitar is a $90 Squire Stratocaster through a $160 amp. I adjusted the pickups a little and did a few small things to it but it's a cheap ass guitar thru a practice amp. It works for me, makes a decent sound for what it is.

    Thanks!

    I had to fave this fucker. Being that I had an ear-to-ear grin on my face from the first chord and for the full two minutes and nine seconds. I mean, it just goes and goes and goes and then it ends, and someone like me is sitting there, sweaty from dancing in his chair, "Wow, that's a perfect song right there." There, I said it. Perfect song right there.

    I like when the bass and guitar are in sync, it makes the song tight and punchy.

    Thanks again Mofo!

    Alice Cooper? Now that's not one i've heard before. There's a few videos that accompany that one, hope you checked them out too! Dale was a showman, he loved all the tapping and strutting around, he was a great performer.

    Thanks man!

    Dirty, gritty and great riffs. Bass guitar is my favorite in this track. Vocals Reminds me of Nick Cave. Nice work.

    Great description and context. All of my formal education is in finance, accounting, and economics. Lately I've been cramming study flashcards to "test out" of college courses so I can sit for a CPA exam (after about 60K of loan debt of course, so technically still plenty broke).

    Because of this, issues such as income disparity, crypto currency bubbles, the "higher education hustle," geopolitical complexities, etc... won't leave my mind.

    This song managed to sum it up in a simple concise way.

    Nice work. Faved.

    Probably my best teacher in HS was my economics teacher. He gave a $1000 scholarship to the student in our class who made the most money playing the stock market with an imaginary $10,000 he gave each of us. He taught us what each column meant on the stocks page, told us how the market worked and we had to make at least 3 trades a week. It was fun! He always used Levi's jeans and Jordache jeans as examples even tho he alway wore a button down shirt and slacks. We all chipped in and bought him a pair of Levis and gave them to him weeks before we graduated, he wore them proudly.

    I think all education should be free thru college except for private schools. An educated society benefits all and it should burden them financially after school. I went to a state college and my debt was only about $12,000 back in the 80's. If Reagan hadn't slash the Pell Grants and govt. tuition help everyone needed it would have been much lower. Trick down economics suck when you're the one being trickled on. lol

    Thanks man, just a quick, simple song!

    defeniatley me, only difference i did have a lot, just fucked it for myself though and lost everything :(( so always building Wayne, but a lot older and wiser, i still let myself down at times just like most but im happy, for a long time i wasnt, i dont blame anyone other than myself, i was a handful tbf but finding a deeper love for music and likeminded people, changing how i go about day to day, important things, not worrying about things i CANT change, not judging of others, then 2 years ago, the most important becoming a grandfather 3 times now :)) stay resolute guys, only you can change your life for the better.
    great track and story telling Wayne, always worth clicking play when i see you up there and the music is always on point

    Older and wiser, that's what we become. We all make mistakes and bad choices growing up, that's a big way to learn about life. We can't control anything in our lives and people think they can, that causes suffering as the Buddha would say. Just try not to piss for a couple days or never get sick. We can't even control our own bodies never mind anything else, lol!!

    Gotta just enjoy every moment by being in the moment, not thinking about the past or the future. Mindfulness.

    Thanks for swinging by!

    Thanks!

    I've been forcing myself to learn to play, record and mix the electric guitar more. So making these straight forward rock songs help a lot, especially when my electric gits aren't the best, learning to better eq them and compress them to get a fuller, quality tone.

    like that chords man.
    song reminds me of me haha and prob a million others.
    I actually treated myself to 2 new toys been saving up, i have got myself a new sunburst fender bass sounds not bad but my cream de la cream is my banjo deliverence here i come :)

    as always man cool tune :)

    theHumps
    Reply by theHumps

    It should remind you of a million others, there's only so many chord progressions used in rock and roll, lol. Basic chord changes, a song like this doesn't need anything fancy, it's a 3 piece banging out an angry song. AC/DC/, Green Day and a thousand other 3 piece bands never used complicated arrangements or chord structures. That's is what this is.

    A sunburst Fender Bass? What year? Jazz? Precision? Very Cool! I borrowed a banjo for a summer, years ago from an old bandmate, who drank himself to death, sad. He gave me a lesson book with songs in it and a floppy vinyl record to put on my turntable and follow along with the lessons. Boy, what a loud instrument. Might get one of those 6 string acoustic guitars that plays like a banjo someday. They even make a sitar version 6 string.

    Thanks man! Have fun with the new toys!

    Hey Wayne, been busy lately so I've been off LM for a few weeks. Getting back, one of the first things I did was search your profile to see if you had a new track. And you did not disappoint!

    As usual the playing was on point and so was the old-school production. I think my favorite aspect of this one was the lyrics though. They seem to convey the simple yet kinda oblique wisdom of a bygone age. "Here's the story of just another working class person. Hear it, and take whatever you can from it."

    Appreciate all the info!

    I can't use those small guitars, I'm a big guy, long arms and big hands. A jazzmaster sounds nice but they have inherent problems at the bridge/tremolo. Playing a mando is a challenge, but it's very small.

    Thanks,
