The blues. Everyone gets ‘em. They are much worse than the pinks, much more common then the violets, and much more serious than the greens. Law enforcement officers get the blues, and so do Harvard professors (just to pick two random groups). Poor people get the blues; rich people get ‘em; and professional animal trainers get ‘em. Just ask the next one you see.
So what can we do when we get the blues? Well, we can wallow in them, drink over them, and give up over them—or we can take matters in our own hands and sing our own blues.
“But to do that, Sam,” you say, “I need to be able to write my own blues, and I don’t know how!”
You mean you didn’t know how. Or you will mean it in the past tense as soon as you view my new video. In this video I teach Jason Headley how to write a blues, or maybe Jason teaches me. That part isn’t clear, but I do know you can learn how to write your own blues by simply watching this video by two consummate pros. I am referring here to the people who produced the videos, Jeremey Lavoi and Abby Berendt of Jaded Multimedia. Jason and I are neither consummate nor pros at much of anything, except perhaps ping pong. That’s why we went into writing.
Still, who better to teach you about the blues then a West Virginia-born and bred son of a science teacher and the suburban New York son of a Presbyterian minister? We are the sum and the definition of soul! If you look up soul in the dictionary you will see a picture of me and Jason sitting side-by-side! But why do that, when you can go view the video here on my website, or by visiting SamBarryTV on YouTube!
