Description
My bud Woody is back in the studio and it sure feels good!...After a rough couple of years with family,career,etc...he is back doing what makes him happy.Hanging out at my house laying down vocal tracks.

I had this little funk ditty started and was wondering what to do with it.Brother Scott and I toyed around with it some last weekend but couldn't really get it off the ground.When Woody heard it he asked if I had considered a rap?I says no,,but we can try it.So he wrote the lions share of the lyrics and I added a few lead riffs and fills....Too much fun!!Hope you'll forgive the unpolished vox fx,my first attempt at anything like this.

Great tune
Good rocker, cool vocal effects, and styling and the lyrics go with the song in a hip kind of way. Guitar break is cool.

Rap's tough to pull off. But you guys did an admirable job. It has a retro Parliament Funkadelic simplicity to the guitars and mix. Cool.

This is an awesome track! I love the old time Funkadelic groove this has going on. That repetitive rhythm guit is perfect with that twangy tone. The bass is low down and gravelly ... the rap fits this perfect and it's cool when Woody sings the melody to contrast it. Good mix ... well done guys! My kind of stuff.

Did Woody ...
... ever sing with 3 Dog Night? :)
I really like the groove on this - dirty and solid. It's only rock and roll, but I like it! Love the change up around 2:20.
Sounds like a heap of fun.

If I may say...
...this has a very cool groove. I know that sounds funny coming from me, but, well. It's true. This number has a very real and authentic feeling to it...wonderful rhythmic things going cooling along in the accompaniment are really engaging. ... Wish you had published the lyrics because I couldn't understand any of them (but my hearing is, unfortunately, beginning to experience a steady decline). I enjoyed this track.
