    Now wait a minute, young lady! At Santa Rosa, I sat behind the keyboard right in front of you on the stage and I watched you do solo acoustic Neil Young with only a lyric sheet on a music stand.

    You were spot on and made no mistakes.

    Thanks! But to get to that point, I had to work awhile to get the chorus down.

    I would say "Pardon my French" but that doesn't work on you...

    So effing what? I mean seriously. An old friend on Facebook a while back who plays guitar said something about "Oh, I thought you could just play everything without a lot of effort" after I mentioned how much I have to shed to learn stuff. How many reps. I assume there are some out there who don't have to, but for most of us, it's kinda brutal hard work at times. That part never ends. Hell, I was just on the drumset for 20 minutes working on technique. It's really hard. :D

    I’m confused. :(
    I never said I couldn’t sing and play. I said it depends - some songs are easier than others, some have tricky bits, some are doable with a lot of work, some are (for me) nigh impossible.
    Pretty much what everyone else is saying.
    That particular one had a tricky bit. But I got it.

    Oh. I read your post in a gripe-ish tone for some reason. :D Oh well....

    I can't do it for 99% of songs. The syllables and beats better line up perfectly or all of sudden I'm juggling.

    Finger style with alternating bass and singing will never happen for me.

    All this Gordo-talk had me playing and singing along with the Sundown album last night.
