Liner Notes: 


host metalfoot
prompt Clumsy

This was a lyric only way back in early July. I knew what I wanted to do musically so I finally got it done. Just a simple blues in 11/8. It was called "Inconvenient" but given the positive responses to the word, I renamed it "Bunglesome". I have to thank my Thesaurus for that one.

Guitars: '94 Fender Mexi-Telecaster

Amp: '78 Marshall Mk II (Lead)
'67 Fender Dual Showman (Rhythm)



Sometimes I trip, sometimes I fall
Sometimes I fumble and drop the ball
My life is movin' at a crawl
Wonder how I get by at all

You might say I'm bunglesome
Ain't the same as bein' dumb
I just try to take what comes
Get back home where I come from

Day by day it's so inconvenient
Tryin' not to look like I am lame
Obviously inept
Secret can't be kept
Ain't no buts I'm just a klutz
No one else to blame.

Gtr Vs

I'm clumsy sometimes I get hurt
Though I try to stay alert
Never let it disconcert
Layin' face down covered in dirt

Bunglesome is an awesome word! Nice rhyme scheme throughout. I can definitely hear this as a bluesy something something. Smile

Wowzers - the finale is pay dirt. That is quite impactful. Seriously. For all that was mentioned prior to the last line, I must say the reality (and confidence) drives home a certainty and attitude about life that I really understand...and dig! Nice write.

bunglesome is an excellent word. great sound - whole thing sounds so rounded - it really smooths out the quirky time sig. very effective.love the subject and love that spoken bit towards the end. top delivery all round. very nice listen. also thanks for your really helpful comment on the Do a Do mixes way back now!
