    Man, I love Blues!!! I talked the band leader into doing some blues tunes, maybe even a Blues set! Getting my guitar pentatonic scales and fingers loosened up!
    I’m even working on my original tunes called “Baby, Your Greens Don’t Taste Like They Used To” and “Nightman”! :thumbsup:

    Well, I don't know how the song will turn out, but you've got a heck of a title there.

    Your Greens Don't Taste Like They Used To...ouch! What a cool title! Nightman is obviously a cool name for just about any genre of music.

    Of course, the Greens song is a sad song about a bruised relationship going further south with evidence in the love missing in the food preparations.
    Nightman is a Blues love song.

    Reminds me of a Keb Mo lyric:
    “When I complained about the salt, in her black eyed peas
    Then she put her hand on her hip and she told me to leave”

    I am reminded of that old Little Milton tune about grits ain’t grocery, eggs ain’t poultry, and Mona Lisa was a man.

    Little Milton?
    And all these years I thought Wet Willie wrote “Grits Ain’t Groceries”!

    Wasn’t Wet Willie the name of a club in Buckhead (ATL)?

    Baby your greens don’t taste like they used to

    I know that you try but yo cornbread is dry

    And even the dog won’t gnaw on your ribs.

    One of our local musicians, Eddie Stone, plays keyboards with them on those few occasions when they get out on the road.

    Those are colorful lyrics, Fritz! I actually wrote an instrumental Blues song some years ago and the then band leader/keys named it Ray’s Blues. It was during that song that I learned the keys couldn’t play Blues and didn’t know what a 12 bar Blues progression was.
