The Reason I Ride Bulls


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This one was written by a sweet old guy named Wayne Willis who is just a natural born story teller and songwriter. I love nothing better than hangin' out with him pickin' a little and hearin' him tell his tall tales. I'm really blessed to have some of these older folks allow me into thier lives, I am a much richer man for it. I know it aint perfect, but it is a lot of fun and I just had to share it!

Genuine country feel
Genuine country feel with some typical ironic lyrics and some fine pickin', Paul. Your vocals slot into this style of music very comfortably. Well done. Take care, Peter.

great!
Country is one of those genres I avoided until i found MJ. Now I genuinely love it and it's because of stuff like this.
Very nice.

thank you guys
I can't wait to let tell Wayne some of these comments. He's the real deal, I lucked out in getting to meet him and have the resources I do to record hs music. I started this project by putting a couple mics in front of him and hiitting record, so there's some good dialog on the tracks of the original. For the final project I'll put them between songs.

I am not all that into country music, but I hear a cool country tune every now and again. I'd say this fits into that category. Cools lyrics and tune - some nice guitar twanging as well. Very fun to listen to - thanks!

I've started chewing tobacco, and walking like John Wayne since this tune was posted, folks have said that's quite enough now.

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
