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.

below: no that’s not Georgia, the photo was shot by stumbleon / Fred Roessler in California – but maybe it is congenial with the feeling, the message of “Georgia on my mind”?

  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.

    • 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.

  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.
