I was told once to just get the music out there.
The concept of one man, a bar stool, and a vintage D28, and an occasional harmonica has led me to this project that I am in. Just simple, plain acoustic music, done with feeling for the music your playing is my goal. That's how simple good music is. Thanks.

The song Tsa-La-Gi I wrote as a tribute to my wife's Grandmother Lizzie Acorn Wooten who lived and died in Tahlequah Oklahoma. I recall our visits there to visit with my wife and her parents. My wife's mother was also full blooded Cherokee ( Tsa-La-Gi ) , so the title translation. She raised 2 children in poverty and sent them both to college. She is buried in the Salem cemetary not far from Tahlequah.

The song Massey Ferguson Tractor was the result of a gig I was playing. The old tractor was behind me, and one thing led to another. It started out as a song about age, and usefulness and turned into a political commentary. Hope you can follow it. Thanks.

Look for me also at ....www.johnmcgue.weebly.com.....or simply type... johnmcgue...as a google search.
The Troubadour remains a popular music style among serious music fans who enjoy listening to live music in an intimate and casual setting. ...
Raised in this valley since I was 5, I've been playing music most of my life but never got the chance to sit down and really take some time at it. After raising four kids and getting them all through college, soccer, and little league it was time to switch gears.
Playing mostly in the tri-valley area and doing some things all around Northern California. Driving truck 12-14 hours a day gives me lots of inspiration and ambition. It also gives me a unique red-neck / hippie / outlaw insight to my music and taste, it may show. SORRY! I am a one man band, meaning that I do everything, so every sound you here is me with the exception of my youngest daughter Holli who does some back-up for me. Really enjoying this! Love to gig and play live...makes it all worth while.
I'm living proof that there is such a thing as a red neck, hippie, cowboy type runnin' around.
Get used to it!

you're welcome - my pleasure - it's very clear that you understood going in that it was more about the 'feel' of the song/story than the chords/notes played - you beautifully capture the spirit of the song - of course, getting older yourself certainly helps in delivering the sincerity behind the words, right? Ain't gettin' old fun?

Old Man ... nice work - it's a pleasure to be able to 'discover' one of your tunes - having gotten a whole lot older than when I first fell in love with this tune, both the words and music take on a new/clearer meaning - your solid/comfortable vocals pay tribute to his highness NY but also cement the simple fact that you've been blessed with your own talent and are using your gift wisely - thanks for sharing ...

much respect

Thanking everyone for the hearts. It's really neat to come home from a 12-14 hour day driving truck and check in to see how your songs are doing. I'll try to get at least 3 a week on. Got a lot of original stuff to I'd like to get on. THANKS!
