I like the line "All I wanted to do was post a song!" :)  Sad in this 
world of less than original people that one has to protect themsleves at 
the cost of sharing something good and fun in the simplest way available 
today!

BTW, just checked your Website.....As a young inspired guitfiddler in 
Australia, playing in a country rock band (my first band) and beleive 
me, there was no such thing as "Country rock" (Amazing Rythym Aces and 
Pure Prarie Legue somewhat lost on our audiences) as such then in Aus, 
we covered a tune by Rodney Crowell called "Stars on the Water"...a 
simple but catchy little tune (I still play it today)...and I remembered 
thinking...who the heck plays that solo...it seemed relatively easy to 
play. That is untill I tried to pick up all those little inflections and 
the super clear voicing of bending notes. I looked at the back of the 
album to see and behold, Mr. Albert Lee!  An English Country picker no 
less!!! :)  I then watched one of those Videos he had showing how to 
play on that beat up ol' tele he has with a million signatures on it. 
That RH finger style coupled with a pick had me just baffled back then.  
I use it in a round about way today.  He is truly one of my guitfiddler 
gods! :)
