    Talking "Grits"

    Y'all,

    Here's a little country thang that I wrote called "Grits".

    Before you dismiss it, consider the fact that it took as much thought and effort to write it as would be required to compose a full orchestral work.

    Regards,

    Cool piece, Larry ... Couperin meets Roy Smeck.

    Dualin' Harpsichords - cool!

    Only problem, it has no Hominey ... get it - Hominey, as in Hominey Grits - I just kill myself sometimes (yuck-yuck, chuckle)

    I really like this, nice job!

    Now if they played this kind of music I would listen to country and western stations. Very cool tune Larry, Excellent with a capital E. It sounds like inspired by Chet Atkins.

    It was inspired by my 'country' upbringing.

    Thanks for your kind comments, Mr. David.

    I'm a city boy, but I used to feed Adel's livestock for her because she let me hunt on her land. I would drive to the barn and a herd of cattle would run beside my truck.

    I would break out some bales of hay, and for desert her cows loved some nutritional purena product called ranch pellets. They were like dogs eating milkbones and then begging me to give them more than their ration of two or three apeice.

    I would have loved to have grown up in the country and always have particularly liked country girls.

    Ah yes. There is nothing quite like a country girl...if I remember correctly.

    I LOVED it, Larry! It's a fine country song with the definate Larry genious that makes it shine above the others!!!

    Love the title too!

    Grits!

    Do you like grits, Larry??? If so, how do you eat YOUR grits! Whenever I see anyone eat grits, they put a little butter and a little salt on it and then proceed to enjoy their morning breakfast. I guess that's the normal way of eating them. I didn't know this, though, when I was first presented with a bowl of grits. It looked like chunky cream of wheat to me. So I put my usual 3 or 4 tablespoons of sugar on top and filled the bowl of grits with milk.

    And it tasted good! And I still eat grits in this manner!

    I made many-a-southern-friend scowel, though, whenever they watch me eat grits this way. I didn't know.

    Nice music, Larry!
