Writer's Block: Top of the Charts

What's the most-played song in your music library?
Talk Back Trembling Lips by George Jones. I need to buy more early George Jones. Hank Williams is at the top of my list but I'm waiting till I have enough money for the complete box set.

My dad would occasionally break out singing some of Talk Back Trembling Lips. I don't remember if he'd listen to the song around me or not. But he'd occasionally suggest that I get a pedal steel guitar and play country music. I was really hating country then. I was completely missing that there was country music to love. Pretty much only the early stuff. But it's kind of odd, you don't go up to someone and tell them they should go play something like that without trying to take the time to give them a broad introduction to it so they can find what if anything works for them. I would enjoy Patsy Cline in my teens through early twenties. A bit of Johnny Cash too. I didn't get a good enough introduction to him. That was it though.

Nowadays I regularly play slide guitar because I constantly see it's practical applications. It's also appealing to me to write some country music if it's experimental country or not. Though knowing me it will most likely be the former.

you should check out daniel lanois' belladonna record (yes, the same lanois who produced u2, etc).

he plays haunting steel in alternate tunings and processes it tastefully with verbs and delays. instrumental record.

highly recommended.
