  • Well, think what you will, laugh if you like
    It don't make no difference to me
    I'll open my case, and I might catch a coin
    But all ears may listen for free

    (Steve Forbert - Grand Central Station)

    I see this guy sawing his axe and pouring out his sound at this Metro station entrance a couple of times a week. He's not exceptionally talented, but he always pours his entire self into the performance. Guitar, mouth harp, singing, gets it all going together and sounds great. It always gives me a lift after a long day in the office and the half hour metro ride home.

    I hate it when I'm in too big of a hurry to stop and listen for a few minutes. He deserves that. I admire his effort and enthusiasm. Play on, guitar guy!
