Default Randy Vanwarmer Cover

Sappy old song from the late 70s recorded based solely on memory. I looked it up after I recorded, heard all my mistakes and decided I'm too lazy to retrack. Hope its ok.

Sounds really nice Sage97. If I recall correctly, John Sebastian did an Autoharp solo on the original.

Thanks Barry. Just plain ol' Sage97 who's now wishing I should've done this in fingerstyle.

Very nice - I had kind of forgotten about that old tune until you brought it up!

I have lots of tunes that I do "solely on memory" and I think that's OK - it's your own take on it, and it turned out great.

Wow, Sage!

That was just terrific! Love your voice!

You still have the ability to use that lovely falsetto voice.

Thanks Glenn. The high notes are getting harder and harder to do as the years go by. Need to keep practicing.
