This is a song for guitarists. You play your guitar and this bit reminds me of Dylan, that bit sounds a bit like The Beatles, or Oasis, or Paul Simon.......and really all that music is within the guitar – waiting for you.
Feed back will be very welcome with this song. As I'm not sure I've got it right. Hope you like it!

well folknacious I will take that as a challenge.
here is a start. Perhaps Big Al could work out a tune and others could add verses.
The Ballad of Travelling Big Al Whittle

Black guitar and big black hat
Big Al Whittle he's a man
Dreams of Iowa Skegness too
hope he gets there how about you
(refrain) With his big red sausage and his line dancing dog.

That is one good song, Al. I love the writing (lyrics) and the guitar work is a bonus. I'd like to do the song. (Of course, I'll credit the writer--in this case, you.) Would you be kind enough to send me the lyrics?

Bruce....what can I say. i am so honoured. Truly I am not worthy...

to tell you the truth I'm still pissing about with the lyrics - so feel free to add subtract, whatever. This is the last time I typed it out - I know I changed it after that. And the lead break is all over the place. But its taken about six weeks obsessive messing to get it even that good.

I long to play that song my guitar sings

I long to play that - song my guitar sings
Play every note like the beat of a blackbird's wing
The song of the sky, and the sweet fresh air - on that   first day of the Spring
I long to play that - song, my guitar sings

Stood alone as the storm was raging in the depth of night
And lightning bathed the whole world , in blue 'n' silver 'n' white
I cried Bring down the lightning to my fingers and hands, when I touch these guitar strings!
For I long to play that song my guitar sings!

When you stand on the mountain see the ravens swoop and fly
Almost reach out and touch them, cos you've borrowed their place in the sky
Lord make my fingers as just as strong..... strong , as their swoop and swing
When I play that song, the song that my guitar sings

I wanna walk that promised land
The muse will set me free
The rocks and the soil beneath my feet will
Harmonise with the waves of the sea.

When I get to play the song that my guitar sings
Play every note like the beat of a blackbird's wing
Songs of the sky, and the sweet fresh air on that first day of Spring
And I shall that song - the song that my guitar sings

That song has legs. Bitchin' piece of work.

I certainly understand the 'messing around with it for six weeks' statement. Hell, that's why we get the big bucks, right?

I'm honoured, Al. Thank you very much.

The song is very good and would have been equally so even if you hadn't included explanations - sometimes it's perhaps best to leave a little mystery about lyrics.

Just listening to various tunes again. Not because you refreshed... on accounta your talent. You ARE a talent.

Thanks. I and my friends that I send your music links to appreciate your talent and, as we all know, your hard work.

Keep on entertaining us, Big Al. We need it.

There are songs out there that are complete crap. No, let me start again. I have been evaluating singer song writers for the past 3 years as a member of a company that issues checks to musicians upon meeting certain regulations. Often I get discouraged in what arrives (on my desk.)and that I have to evaluate. Then once in a while a musician appears and upon the first few notes on their instrument or the first line of their lyrics completely blow you away. Al, this is one of them. Solid, beautifully written and your guitar work is just right.
Best of luck in all your work.
Adrien
