Woody Guthrie Inspired New Song Demo – Give Me Feedback
After breakfast, I open it. Inside is a greetings card. On the front a drawing by Woody Guthrie. I open it and realise it is a card from Woody’s daughter Nora and her partner Michael thanking me for the Woody 100 celebrations last year and saying “keep doing the good work with your woody folk club.”
Even more poignant, a quote from Woody is printed inside: “If ever there was a time to have a good time, this is the time.”
This kind of sums up my whole philosophy of life. I’m always telling my friends to find joy right now, to realign themselves with their passions. So to see that so starkly from Woody himself got me writing a song instantly.
It’s a demo, it’s rough, and moreover it may even be a work in progress but still – have a listen, and give me some feedback.
