Description
Childhood buddy A-man added lead guitar to a guitar arrangement I sent a few weeks back. I did my best mixing our sounds together, added some words. I knew the tune could be embellished - sepecially around 3:52 in the song, and I imagined gadzooks playing something there. Stan graciously added drums, bass, harps, arrangement, enviable production skills and spirit. This tune is the result. A great experience for me in many ways. Thank you two guys, alot!

Lyrics
Bro

The Wind.
Sounds like it’s
blowing through pine trees.
and for me...
pine trees bring to mind childhood

Every now and then
I like to give a shout-out
to a long time.. amigo of mine..
I believe we met in 1957
in a little community..
nestled in the foothills..
a SLEEPY.. little town

Well, we camped.. and we swam.. and we..played in the Pines
and we... learned a lotta lessons by its banks,
in.. on.. and around..a little brook..
by the name of LEADMINE..

That was more than half a century back
and still every now and then
I can think of A-man
and when he picks up a guitar...
I guess it’s just what he can do with it!

I...I can close my eyes RIGHT NOW...
and I go back.. I zip back..
It’s like a time machine..
I can hear A-Man and he sounds like this:

**A-man GUITAR**

OH..MY! ..
NOW..
Many of you have a friend or two
you’ve known all down the line
and as the years roll by
you don’t lose sight
I run into A-man this way

As we stumbled through our early lives
we played a few guitar tunes
drifted through Parmalee Gulch in wee hours
moved furniture for a dude named Cudge
slept on people’s rugs
it was the sixties..
What might A-man play about the sixties?
Huh!.. Take a listen

Now I remember well..
Tryin’ to coax A-man into.. giggin’ with me
on this very same.. d-28.. so..
Imma’ gonna try .. ‘an call him up again
I’ll give it a try..
can’t promise anything
You hear anything?
Nah.. Neither do I.

If we try.. and we think about it.. and we HOPE!
OOOW! Whoa lordy!
Are you feelin’ what I’m feelin?..
Let’s give him one more call...
A-man yeah.. A-man yeah..
A-man yeah.. A-man yeah!..

That pretty much wraps up where my mind wandered
driving through a pine forest.. west of Flag.. late at night
A-man’s touch.. soundin’ all right.

Great main riff and the spoken word approach fits the dusty/bluesy groove perfectly. A lead guitar feast and the harp rules!

Thanks
for the listen, Andrew. The feeling of being a part of something bigger, and to have that be appreciated is my idea (and yours, obviously) of fun.

For me it was like making a snowball and having two other individuals turn it into a sculpture. I love that harp!

Reminds me in style and dynamics of the classic live song 'Sharon' by The Dave Bromberg Band. Organic swampy feel with great drive. Jam-a-rama. A-man rocks and Stan blows the lights out. Find bro-mance song :-) Thanks, Greg. Regards, Peter.

Not sure what you're looking for, but I feel a 70's groove.
Great performance.
