Let's Get Low

There's not much work around for one armed Guitarists. I've therefore had plenty of time on my hand(s) to think back on some of the songs I've written. Yesterday I remembered a song I wrote which was all part of a 'master plan' to ensure solvency in old age. I figured that if I reached pensionable age and was broke - it would be a good idea to have a song of my own which required only the one basic instrument - guitar. That way, if needs be, I could stand on street corners and perform it well into my nineties. Now even that plan is busted. So Mr Bruce Springsteen, Robbie Williams, Neil Young et al, this song has minimal orchestration and arrangement meaning you could stamp your own style on it, and it's available for only One hundred thousand dollars (though I am prepared to open negotiations at fifty dollars).

I didn't want to just post the music so last night I made a wee daggy video to go with it, all of the images in the video were taken by myself or my wife Tracey and so some of the video might not make much sense - but it was all I had to work with lol. At huge expense we filmed in Rosslyn Chapel (yes of Da Vinci Code fame), Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Winter markets, the 17th Century home of the Duke of Argyll, The Gold Coast Australia, Brisbane - Oh and Lindisfarne on the Holy Isle. We didn't do all that last night however...



  1. Awwww! That was a very beautiful song and simple to boot! Well done. :D

  2. Look good in a kilt Rory:)
    What a lovely couple you both are!!
    I really like the song, catchy, nice chords.. yes.. v nice song!!

  3. a personal and loving video
    her indoors is very proud I suspect

  4. You're a bonny lad in a kilt.

  5. Wow, that was beautiful Rory.

    Did I tell you....that I'm a sucker for a man in a kilt? And a foil hat.

  6. A man of many talents, to be sure, and you look equally at home in a kilt as you do in a cowboy hat. Your song is top-notch, and so is the video. I hope somebody pays you big bucks for the privilege of recording it. Next Monday, I'll have a wee award for you on my blog, laddie.

  7. This is going to be a hit.
    Your wife is really pretty.
