My music and music tastes sit somewhere in the Blues, Americana, Singer-Songwriter, Folk, Roots-Rock, Alt-Country, No Depression (whatever that is) side of things.  In other words, back porch music.   I keep the acoustic out and play it at least a little everyday.  I rarely get to play the Strat anymore, these are without a doubt the acoustic years.    


The easiest audience, the kids.   They love everything as long as you work their names into the lyrics.  Our little buddy Brett, when he was one, would walk over to the guitar and says "Lane.  Lane play it."  Then our little buddy Nolan would say "Tar, Lane, Tar" as soon as I walk in the door.
