Here's something new. I tried audioblogger, and recorded a voicemail message I made with my friend John, an extremely multi-talented guy who can learn to play guitar in about a month, but would rather squander his abilities by becoming (gasp!) a lawyer. I still haven't forgiven him for that.

We laid this track down one afternoon, and decided it was too long for any answering machine, but I still like it. This blues song is scratchy and poorly produced, just like the early works of Muddy Waters. That's Johnny V on rhythm and slide guitar and vocals and yours truly playin' da harmonica and doing background vocals (lyrics in parentheses).

Mike Not Home Blues

Well, I... called up Mike this mornin', just to give him a little news
(Yeah, what was you gonna tell him?)
Yeah, I called Mike this mornin', just to give him a little bit o' news... and the schmo wasn't even there
(Yeah, what a schmo)
Well, I got those I-called-up-Mike-on-the-phone-and-I-got-his-answering-machine-message-and-it-took-about-a-half-an-hour-for-it-to-finish-and-he-probably-went-out-drinkin'-last-night-and-that's-why-he-didn't-answer-the-phone-because-he's-sleepin'-'til-two-o'clock-in-the-afternoon-and-now-he's-too-lazy-to-get-up-an'-pick-up-the-phone.... GASP....blues!
(Yeah, I get those every day)
I'm glad this song is over... leave your name and number.
(Da'ssit. Yeah.)
