They call me Jinglin Baby because ever since anyone remembers I have been making music, although back then it was mainly just noise.
The nickname stuck after my first Christmas when I got a tambourine from my Grandpa.
He's no longer around but he's the one responsible for the Jinglin Baby nickname.
With one laughing outburst, "Just look at that jinglin' baby!" he forever changed my life.
Evidently once I held that little wooden tambourine in my pudgey little hands I wouldn't put it down for like the next 6 years, until he got me a guitar!
I miss you Pickn' Old Man (my nickname for him). I Wish I had a video of you playing that old 6 string to post on YouTube. I know you'd get like a gazillion Likes!
From me you get ONE BIG LOVE!
What do you think? Does this look work for me for the Christmas work party?
Not too many people at my "real job" knows that I am in a band. A few have seen me on stage but I imagine I might turn a few heads in the accounting department though if I showed up packing my axe and rocking out as one of Santa's sexy elves.
I'm still debating it!
I love this picture because it reminds me of all the family Christmas afternoons spent playing music together.
We had a wood burning stove that kept one corner of the house all warm and cozy, and that's where you would find the dogs sacked out and the kids with hot chocolate mustaches.
We'd all be singing our little lungs out while my aunt tickled the ivories and uncles, cousins and whoever else strummed along on a gee-tar. Of Course I had my tambourine!
We were usually short a guitar or two so as soon as someone put one down, someone else would pick it up.
I used to affectionately call my Grandpa Pickn' Old Man because that's what he was. He'd wait until everyone else got to play a little and then when folks would start to wander off for thirds on dessert he'd quietly pick up a discarded six string and the magic would happen!
