Searching For The Georgia Feeling

trying to play on my acoustic guitar a little fingerstyle tribute to Ray Charles … – of course there are much better guitar versions by Django Reinhardt, David Bromberg etc.

What an amazing contraption!

  1. I once had the great pleasure of sitting in a ballroom where Ray Charles was playing for the first Georgia Music Hall of Fame awards dinner!


  2. Beeeeeeeautiful rendition! I loved the old photos.
    With each photo, I was thinking, “Is that Georgia?” So I was amused by the continual “No, that’s not Georgia” comment.


  3. I love anything Ray Charles sings. Your guitar playing is quite good. I like it.

  4. I´m hearing all of your songs from “autumn leaves” at my work, and it’s so relaxing that I don´t want the songs to stop… Thanks, I feel really great.


  5. beautifully done! one of my favorite “sweet old songs”. I’m loving waking to a new tune each morning.


    • hi Susan,
      I like your poem 66 very much:

      I have a guitar. I play music on my guitar.
      I have a plant. The plant has three new leaves.
      I have a sister. My sister drives a school bus.
      I have hunger. Hunger goes with me everywhere.
      I have the moon – slept with the moon over my shoulder.
      I have determination. Determination is my weapon.


  6. I loved Georgia- actually liked them all – a great way to end my day


  7. A wonderful post. The pictures capture “just an old sweet song”.
    Your rendition of Georgia was beautiful. I’ve been working on a Georgia blog. There’s a whole story in it for me. I played it for years. Love to sing it even though I can’t. But this past year I actually looked at the sheet music and have been learning it that way. I was using the wrong chords. So there’s a long musical journey for me. But it is such a wonderful song that it keeps me going. Your rendition was just beautiful.

  9. Love that old sweet song. :)


  10. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…


  11. …a big smile is my comment!
    Thank you.


  12. ok, now you’ve done it! You played this so beautifully you made me cry with joy. This was a true joy today.


  13. So while I caught up on reading, your playlist rolled from song to song. Ah! New Orleans was heavenly to the soul and ears! thanks, z


  14. with only the sound of the wind, the finches and the waterbirds, this tune was perfect for a mellow sunday morning on the river! thanks! z


  15. Cher
