This might be my fave of my original songs and it IS played on my most fun to play instrument. I have posted this song before on cigar box mandolin and DGBE acoustic. First time posting on my plugged in Iowa LPG with Iowa saxophone. And I live in the heart of Iowa and within a few miles of several now abandoned coal mines.
Thanks, Ron. I stole Peabody from the John Prine song you spoke of. Sad old stories about the miners. I think people think of Kentucky, West Virginia and Penn. for the old coal mines, but they were here in Iowa and other mid-western states. Ours was a dirty burning coal and I think there were not many clean white houses back in those days.
Thanks, James. Still a huge amount of open pit coal coming out of Wyoming.. We are a few blocks from the Union Pacific man line and see the full coal cars heading east and then coming back empty on the way west.
Sounding good their uncle John fine song no more coal mining except in China
Thanks, Kale. It has a bass mag pup from Gitty. I have to be careful with the amp settings on some songs or it can be too gritty.
Some gritty sounds coming from that LPG. Sounds fantastic.
Thanks, Allan. It's my most fun player.
I remember the former Mr Peabody Vid well 'UJ', nice to see the combination of the "IOWAY" Saxophone and LPG on this one :-)
