Well, I wrote this tune for another forum member (**not** on this forum), who persistently put me and my playing down, in many ways (all the while refusing to show his own playing).

 

So, I think the tune title and content is appropriate!! :)

I don't like the person who put your playing down.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

I'll never understand how people can get pleasure out of putting others down.

Very cool piece Jim.

You probably nailed the issue with that forum member down pretty accurately. He doesn't post himself cause he can't play well enough and he might be jealous of your talents.

Thanks all for your feedback :)

 

I do like the tune, and I did an alternate version without all the nasty discords, plus a third part as well.

 

The name's different too. It's called "Checkin' Out the Chicks" :)

 

I'm just trying locate it now on on horrendously gummed up PC!

@Barry
A five star reply.
The next poll should be
"in which category do you fit?"

I think there were a couple of categories missing

Ie. my vote = got nothing meaningfully to say?
Just go Blah! Blah! Blah!.....

Those people have very low self esteem, so by putting down another person they feel superior,,,, I think.
