TUESDAY BLUES! Chris Smither - What It Might Have Been

Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!




Now, what was I going to play?
Chris Smither - What It Might Have Been

As I get older, (not wiser), I've been listening to more and more of the Blues and this certainly has it all. I only discovered Chris Smither last year, when he released his beautiful album Hundred Dollar Valentine and I was struck by both his voice and his flawless guitar playing.  If you play (or have played) guitar, the Blues is the building blocks, the foundation.  It is so simple, yet so very difficult to carry off.  If you lined up fifty guitar players, only a few would be able to play it so soulfully and fewer would be able to sing it.  This guy deserves to be heard.

Now pour me another drink.

I saw Chris live a few times in the late 1990s. He's a magnetic performer who brings a hush to any room he plays in and holds the attention effortlessly. He's also very unassuming and approachable. I haven't heard anything by him in a while and this is just as good as I remember him being.

Really love the melody and I get what you mean about the drumming OP! Sounds like the casual clippety clop of a horse mosying along the prairie!
