Recently, at the suggestion of the band leader, I performed one of my original songs while playing in a band in which I am a side man. It is based on Ozark folklore and set in the Ozark hills, utilizing natural features as the setting.
It is not blues, but bluesy...
We had not rehearsed this recently and I was fighting the remnants of a cold as I sang, but overall I think it turned out fine for an off the cuff song at a live show.
EDIT: The video was recorded by local videographer Kristen Johns. Her YouTube and Facebook are "champaignunderground". ----------

"Lonely" and "Regret" are 2 descriptives that cover many genres. I've been learning this for about 10 years. Time was I was a blues snob, until I realized that other avenues reflected my history and experience equally as well. Some of my songwriting has captured those memories and emotions much like you have, Doug.
We have no video of our originals as yet. ---------- Music and travel destroy prejudice.
