St. James Infirmary is a real oldie ... might be the "original" blues tune if such a thing exists. The chap playing the chords is an old friend who was for years a producer with the CBC on a show called "As It Happens" ... might sound a familiar note with the Canucks here. Back in the day George and I were folkies. I remember doing a gig with him at the Edmonton Klondike Days ... someone thought it was a good idea to put us on after a hot rock band ... we literally cleared a block full of people in 30 seconds ... you'd have thought it was Sunday night at your local ghost town. St. James Infirmary 538897

I really enjoy playing with George ... he can actually do that magical thing ... read music ... and he understands theory really well. I on the other hand play by ear and can't read a note ... well, I can read a bit ... F A C E ... and then there's the one's in-between, that's about it. St. James Infirmary 538897 One thing we have in common is really trying to create a musical whole where both parts are equally important. I really enjoy making music this simple, where both parts are totally dependant to create the whole. In this case, as neither George or I have any kind of musical ego, it's easy.

Anyway, enough BS'ing ... just wondering if that will make it through the filter St. James Infirmary 538897

So far in winter Edmonton it's looking a lot like Vancouver ... yeah, I know, a bit of a stretch but if this goes on much longer it will be one for the record books.

Cheers,
Ian
