It’s time for a little boot scooting celebration!!!!!!!!
BECAUSE - - -
It’s Don’s Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (rawdodb)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope it’s a good one - and I really hope you’re feeling better!!!!! (Don’s had a touch of the flu - not the most “desirable” birthday present!)
And it’s also a little bit of a celebration because I’m back home from the Far East!!
SO - since I’ve returned to Texas - and because Don is a REAL western fan (check his gallery!) I figured that it would be appropriate to do something with a little C&W flavor for his birthday!!!!!
AND - just to throw a REAL twist in the “plot” - Jocelyn has been bugging me to do another “flute song.” Actually, all the girls have been bugging me to do some more band stuff. I didn’t have any Poser stuff loaded on my laptop while I was in the Far East, but I did have the music software.
So - I tried to think of a good song that would lend itself to a flute arrangement - which by the time that idea had bounced around amid the blond brain cells - I decided that there wasn’t anything “fluty” I could come up with - and then I thought - maybe I’ll REALLY juggle some instruments around!!!
Which obviously led me to Charlie Daniels and “The Devil Went Down to Georgia!!” (Only a blond would understand that little leap of imagination!!!)
Except of course there are no flutes in the song!! The song is the story of the Devil going down to Georgia to challenge a musician to a fiddle playing contest!! To make a long story short, the Devil loses because the guy from Georgia is “the best that’s ever been!”
Anyway - I decided that I could put Jocelyn playing the fiddle part of the flute. That didn’t work out quite right - so I recruited Jennifer to do a flute “duel/duet” on a second flute. With Digital providing the “guitar rhythm line” on piano, Connie handling bass, and Kyla on drums, we were all set.
I e-mailed a VERY preliminary copy of the song off to Don (without telling him why I was working on it) and that’s when I found out he was such a big fan of Charlie Daniels! That made this a perfect choice!!!!
Don’s one of the sweetest guys I’ve ever known in my whole life and has been one of my oldest and bestest buddies here at Renderosity!!! We exchange e-mails several times a day!! He’s also an airplane freak - check his avatar and gallery!! (There seems to be a LOT of airplane freaks around here! Sure glad I’m normal!!!)
And of course, you may remember from this past Christmas that Don plays Santa to a lot of furry friends at his wife’s pet shop!!
(And plays Santa to at least one not so furry blond, too!!!!) ;-)
Don’s Christmas Card
ANYWAY - here’s the girls doing a special version of the Charlie Daniels classic just for your birthday Don!! I hope you like the final sound mix and I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!!!! (And get to feeling better!!!!)

PS - Now Digital is REALLY bugging me - so the next song I do has to be one featuring her on the piano! Stay tuned!!!

Glad your back Mere. So you got to expirence a little Rock & Roll while in Japan? What was it... about a five where you were? Heck, we here in California barely notice a fiver.
