Finally got to check some of these out - very sweet. Good tone. Did you even get my dm about the book I am writing?

I did not. Let me check for that today. I too have thought of a COVID inspired writing session. Will check out DM today

Very rough, execution about 50%, but I especially am enjoying this thing that happened to my guitar -- the "D" string knowb is stuck, so it is now a second B string -- makes some cool combos by playing normal chord shapes. Anyway, worth a lol, perhaps... https://www.feed-forward.net/w.7363_COVID-19_bLUEs

I can get you the current draft if you dm me your proper email.

I feel like your taking mouth shape more seriously in these tunes -- 1/2 of all tone is gonna come from that.

As for essential benefits, the way I look at it we are probably in the best of all times and places (covid notwithstanding). But it's easy for humans to get complacent !level_up_america

PS: Great imagery here :)

I’m pretty much always in a Canadian tux. Part of my blue collar heritage probably. Thankfully the weather has been nice to wear right now. The chords are def plentiful in this. I think it is funny how I can write a tune with like 3 chords, and then others require near 50. It’s all about the journey I guess. Instant standard is too kind!

I have to check this out when I get a regular computer back - I wrote a similarly titled tune recently: "I can feel it in my fingers, I can feel it in my shoes, I can feel it coming on now it's the covid 18 bLUEs - is it a hoax, is it a praNk, oscillate it a ruse? Oh no, it's just a nasty case - a case of covid 19 bLUEs!

God willing we can get serious about a negative income tax that fades out as income increases- work is so unproductive! Imagine a world where you can actually create things of value without constantly worrying about making rent... You'll be more productive.

Sounds like we are both struggling currently lol. I with lack of functional equipment and you with PC issues. That idea is utterly utopian, but as an artist, I can’t get behind it enough. Sounds amazing

It's more capitalist than you realize. Out of 100,000 working hours in your life, if you are doing something unfulfilling, how productive are you? I will argue not very productive at all. Most people absolutely want to work, almost all artists are mis-employed and we need a creative economy now more than. Guarantee Healthcare, guarantee income, and guarantee post secondary and continuing education. It's a structural change and it's 💯 % necessary for capitalism to survive. How much would it cost - 750 billion per year for guaranteed income (with phase out and perhaps MINIMAL work requirements). Health expansion will be another 750 billion a year and post secondary a measly 250 billion. All in all 1.75 trillion per year in annual spending.

BUT HOW WILL WE PAY FOR IT?!?! We won't- money doesn't grow on trees but it does get helicoptered in for essential benefits. These are essential benefits.
