This was a bit of a song writing challenge for me, having got the following message on Youtube on the 21st Aug:

Hey , My birthday is Friday the 24th . I would love it if you wrote me a birthday song . My name is Rick , I live in Gainesville Florida ,USA , I whittle , fish , drink sangria on Saturdays and started building cbg's a few months ago and still don't know how to play but enjoy listening to you. If you can do it , it would be cool. Oh yeah , I have a dog named pig too if you can squeeze her in. ! Thanks

I can't usually write a song to order, but decided to give it a go....

Thanks Digly. It was a fun challenge. From further comments from Rick I now know that Pig is a beagle / weiner mix. Still not sure if that's small or big??

Yes Danny, I hope it'll prompt Rick to get going with his CBG's. I've pointed him to the lessons on here : -)

Brother3String - thanks, and  yes Rick said on Youtube that he will write a song back. I quote  " It'll probably be bluesy and I will probably have a lil sangria in me , to loosen up the pipes a little" : -)

That's a really great job at very short notice, Be.  I liked the line about the dog.  We need to know.  Pig: small or big ?   :-)

I AGREE WITH BROTHER 3 STRING RICK WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOU PLAY THOSE CBG'S
Comment by Brother3String on August 25, 2018 at 12:31am
Rick from Gainesville, you now have an absolute obligation to learn to play that CBG, and pay back Bemuzic with a song of your own. Take your time... the Nation will be waiting. And B, nice job!
