Suffet Where do your songs, tunes come from? (19) RE: Where do your songs, tunes come from? 27 Sep 10


I'm with Jerry on this one. My songs and tunes come from everywhere and they go into what he calls a well. When I dredge them up they are not necessarily the same as when they went in. They words may be different, the tune may be different, the accompaniment (if any) will most certainly be different. In fact, I am completely shameless in rewriting my sources to please myself, even when the sources are well known. That's why I can and do perform Merle Travis's 16 Tons as a funky blues.
