I am a "truther" and I believe "True Lies" are at the core of ignorance, confusion and injustice in our world. Propaganda is real in America and the rest of the world, as well. It serves the wealthy and the powerful and enslaves the rest of us to one degree or the other and in many ways. One of the least understood is "employment," the renting of people by the hour by our "owner" masters. This is modern slavery as opposed to the slavery of "buying and selling" people of color (and others).
The purpose of this post is to introduce my music project and The Blue Notes: Do (on the keyboard), Re (at the microphone), and Me (with the guitar).
The Blue Notes are going to produce a series of musical video blog entries on this website as we work to construct a blues ballad about modern slavery we call "The True Lie Blues."
The format for these blog entries will include me talking about the process of writing the lyrics and music for our blues ballad with a sampling of our performance progress along the way.
I have little or no musical talent or ability, but a lot of desire to accomplish this music project as part of my retirement goals I set for myself. I really hope that some of you may find it (and us) interesting, or at least mildly amusing.
