Thanks for watching Matthew! Playing with others is a very satisfying experience. Zoom isn’t ideal, but many Slingers aren’t local, so it’s a great way to encourage making music on our CBGs.

Always happy to put a big smile on your face Uncle John! We will try to keep up the good work.

Large :D  for the Slingers.

Thank you, thank you Kale and BrianQ! I think we have three of Roy’s songs now in our catalog. Room for improvement. Always room for a Texan!

Another Texas rocker!

Oh man. Great to see some Orbison in The Slingers catalog. Roy wrote so many great songs.

Comment by Doug Thorsvik on September 20, 2023 at 5:16am

Thanks for the kind words BrianQ! This song became fun for me when I just started playing it by feel and not sweating the few spots in the song where I just couldn’t line up with Roy on the timing.

Well done!!

Thanks Alan! Another Slinger requested song that I ended chasing down to learn. Turned out to be a fun one to sing and play.
