Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Music Series. Come join me each week as I play guitar and sing and chat–all from our beautiful neighborhood beside the Sea. See You Around!

Well, well, well dear neighbors—November went out with the full moon and a crisp chill in the air.  This is my favorite time of year here at the beach.  It’s a little nippy outside to play guitar so I’m broadcasting from the Castle until further notice. I’m so glad that you’re here.   Knowing that you tune in each week from all over the world makes it extra special.  The power of the internet to bring us together blows my mind.  It’s a small world after all. 

This week’s set list:

00:50    Come to My Window—Melissa Etheridge

               This is me taking an old rocker chick song and folking it up like I like to do.  My favorite part of the song is the chorus: “Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon; Come to my Window—I’ll be home soon. “  I love the thought of COMING HOME, especially to the beach, this lovely place we call HOME.

07:08    Pale Blue Eyes—Lou Reed

              This song is the reason I started teaching myself to play guitar at age sixty-three.  I was singing karaoke with zero knowledge of music.  I heard Sheryl Crow & EmmyLou Harris sing this song.  They sounded like angels.  I wanted to sing the song, but my voice is much lower than these girls.  Somehow, by a series of unusual events and bleeding fingertips I managed to knock out a couple chords on a beat up old junker guitar to accompany myself.  Turns out you can play a lot of songs with just three chords.  Anyway, MUSIC changed my life.  And I know a few cute fellows with pale blue eyes. 

12:10    Jasmine—Debi Jean

               My songwriting almost always takes a fantastical turn cuz it’s just plain fun to write songs.  The character of Jasmine came to me in a dream, she was wearing a peacock feather cloak.  And she had wings of steel when the situation required it.  And it did.  The situation required it—when she picked up her guitar—on the stage of Austin City Limits—Jasmine gave them everything she had and more.  Just another day in the life of a musician.  Lovin’ it!

It’s time to take off now.  I appreciate you tuning in and I hope you’ve enjoyed the musical selections.  I wish you a wonderful week.  See you next time right here on FIRST COAST. Life.

Yours Truly,

Debi Jean & Mr Martin
