The other night I had a dream where I was backstage after a show with Chris Whitley and he was just about to teach me to play guitar.
When I woke up, I briefly considered that this might be a "sign" and that I should call the local music store immediately to start guitar lessons. Then I remembered that the "receiving-of-signs" is not one of my gifts.
So instead Chris will handle the Rockin' of our Friday this week. Hey, maybe that's what he was trying to tell me!
This is the song he was playing in my dream.
Dirt Floor, Chris Whitley, Dirt Floor
The weird thing was that, in my dream, we kept referring to the song as Scrapyard Lullaby. Which it ain't although both songs are from the Dirt Floor album.
Of course, I woke up just before the lesson actually started. Blast!
