Two (becomes Four)

Family, Circa 2009

Key: R20090331-062016-crop

I was listening to alt country on Slacker the other night, and a song came on that struck a chord with me, so to speak. I looked over at the “now playing” info and made a new acquaintance: Ryan Adams. (No, not Bryan,.. Ryan. Look him up.) The song was Two. I’m not sure which version, but I found this version that I liked later on YouTube (warning: prefaced by loud DJ intro).

Well the dang song stuck in my head and wouldn’t leave. And you know what I have to do when that happens, right? Yeah, I had to learn it and then record it. Don’t ask me why I do this, it’s just a compulsion. Perhaps it had something to do with my wife and kids being out of town for the week, and feeling a little lonely. Anyway, Dear Reader, if you feel so inclined to give 2:38 of your precious time to hear my version you can catch it right here on posterous. Thanks for listening!

  1. Nice cover of “Two,” Eric. Man, I wish I had even the slightest musical talent. I’ve some of Ryan Adams music in my small collection. I like “Off Broadway” and “Oh My God, Whatever, etc.” from his Easy Tiger album among others.

    A nice family photo. Definitely thumbs-up!

  2. Hi Earl,
    Thanks for the positive review! I must have been living under a rock not to have heard of Ryan Adams before, but then I don’t watch a lot of tv. I heard Easy Tiger was pretty good so maybe I’ll have to pick that one up.

    As to not having any musical talent, please don’t short-change yourself. I think a lot of people are very hard on themselves when it comes to musical talent. It can be learned like anything else. I did have some early training, but really didn’t do anything for many years until I picked up the guitar in my 40s and started teaching myself to play. You can do it! Of course, you have to want it. There is no shortage of hobbies is there?

    • Eric, trust me, my saying I have no musical talent is not short-changing myself… 😉

      I do a lot of things pretty well but with music I have to be content at being an enthusiastic listener.
