There’s a saying i’ve been hearing lately – “mush brain”.

Because I feel like I have that.

Let me preface with this.  I was rendering the video last night to prepare it to upload.  My wife says “Can you help me with the laundry?”, and because i’m such a chivalrous gentleman, I let the laptop continue to render the video and went upstairs to help with the laundry.  3 loads of laundry later, I say “Wow I’m bushed.  I better head to bed.”  And off I go to sleep.

And then I wake up this morning and say “Holy crap I didn’t upload the video and post about it.”  Needless to say, I feel like a total dbag.

So while i’d technically like to call this “Fail Friday”, but i’d rather call it “Thumpin’ Thursday which is too cool to be posted on time.”

Anyway, on with the video.  Tonight I am covering a song from Toad the Wet Sprocket called “Dam Would Break”.  It’s from one of my favorite albums.  The song is “Dam Would Break” and it’s the 4th track from the album “Coil”.  I remember trying to figure out how to play this song 10 years ago before I knew what a capo was.  Naturally I didn’t know enough chords at the time to figure out this song without a capo.  It’s a wonderful tool for sure.

You’ll also notice the new guitar strings.  Sound good don’t they?  I wish I could say the same about the forgetful person playing the song.

I’m began my semester last week, so if any of my current students are reading this, I hope you did your homework!  (It could easily be any of the 80+ students I have)

Ok i’ll see you in 6 days for a (hopefully on time) new video!

Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up.  We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session.  We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and original music blog again in the future.  But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!
