RIP BB King: The Thrill Is Gone

I woke up to the news that BB King has passed away. I saw him play a few times, once in the Mid 70's when "The Thrill Is Gone" was a number one record.

Re: Y13W26 Billy Wind

Nicely done. Your written lyric on the last line is "... cause never sops calling". You didn't type in the "She" which brings it all together.

Re: 13/25 Deception

Thanks for your input. Ukuleles are my go to weapon of choice. I'm investigating Midi pickups but frankly, I'll probably stick to acoustic

Re: Y13W25 How Much of Myself Must I Give?

It's working now. Good rocking song. I hear the Jamesettes doing background vocals. I don't understand the theology but I'll accept that you do.

Re: Y13W24 - Missed Connections

After using "miss" three times in the first verse, I found its use in the second verse to be distracting

Re: Y13W25 How Much of Myself Must I Give?

The song file won't open so I'm just going on the lyrics. I'm not following the story line at this point. I'm sure that once I hear it, everything will be clear

Re: 13/25 Deception

What you've got so far looks OK to me, John. Third verse, I don't quite get the lions/ducks/whales imagery - I'd have thought that, say, weasels, jackals and hyenas would fit - or continue - the theme of treachery better? Hopefully they don't all share the same collective noun... Vic pride, flock a...
