Lucky Man Story Hilarious story about an Aussie in San Fran, funky didge beatbox, lapsteel slide, 1-man band - Lucky Man Story - naTHAN Kaye - (entry for Steemit Open Mic week 74). ORIGINAL SONG AN UNCONVENTIONAL AUSSIE IN THE USA - TRUE STORY: I wrote this after a mega 2 month tour of UK and Ireland where I ended up in the USA on a crazy road trip to Burning Man Festival via Las Vegas and the Nevada Desert! THE BACK STORY PRE-AMBLE: I've always been a storyteller. That's why I became a film & TV actor and also why I became a musician. Music is a form of storytelling, even when there are no lyrics. But the depth of storytelling got elevated another notch when I was in Ireland. You see, before I got to the States, I had finished playing at a festival in the South East of Ireland and after the fest had ended and everyone left, there was about 40 of us huddled around a huge fire sharing songs and stories. The Irish have this incredible tradition of story songs. That is, songs that start out more like an incredible actor's monologue, but then they literally break into chorus (all together) at key moments, returning back to the story, then back to the chorus... (seriously an incredible cultural tradition that I could rave on for hours about) This was revelationary to me! I then heard a few trad bluesman play in the USA who also had a similar style of storytelling songs. (mind blown!) So as I was experiencing my journeys through the USA, I wrote this song of this hilarious experience I had and I employed this incredible story-song type format that is traditional in Irish culture and African-American blues culture. Ok, so Even though it's a bit different to the normal song entry, I really do hope you enjoy and perhaps get transported into viscerally experiencing what transpires in the story!!! AND IT IS ALL TRUE! As with my previous performances, nothing is looped or pre-recorded in this one-man band performance. I am simultaneously playing the "Violap" Lapsteel Slide guitar (co-designed by Ben Harper), Slide-Didge (modern adaptation of the traditional Aboriginal wind instrument known most commonly as didgeridoo), vocals and electronic foot drums (homemade from wet-suit, plywood, guitar cables, and contact mics into a drum module). So dear friend reading this, I do hope you enjoy this performance! Thanks so much for listening. If you felt the vibe of this performance, please do upvote, resteem, follow @nathankaye and comment. I'd really love to hear from you. Lucky Man Story songwriting copyright is © & ℗ Nathan Kaye 2009. All rights reserved.
