part 2: what song is you want to hear?
The Netscape Radio station I'm listening to is playing Freebird.
There was a time when Freebird was an anthem of sorts. Back when I had no taste in music. Not that I do now.
When I was in high school, back in the dark ages, country-rock was a big thing. You know, Charlie Daniels, Outlaws, Marshall Tucker, that type of music. And the everpresent Lynyrd Skynyrd, which all posers spelled Leonard Skinnard.
Man, I knew that whole guitar masterpiece at the end by heart. Too bad I only played air guitar.
Lord knows I cant cha-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ange....
So there was the inevitable time that I was standing on a picnic table during one of our cut-out days, fingers flying, teeth gritted, real guitar action, except I had no guitar. Yea, I fell off the table. I sort of flew, I think my arms actually tried to flap. I landed with a thud on the dirt and stayed there for the rest of the day.
At least my guitar didn't break.
