Domestic Incident

Do you like surprise songs? You know-songs that lead you to believe you know whats coming-only to slip in a surprise ending? A few surprise songs that come to mind: Memphis, The Carol County Accident, and Saginaw Michigan.

Recently I’ve found a new favorite surprise song Domestic Incident-written by none other than Paul. Give it a listen and see if you catch the surprise-its near the end. Be careful or you may be blown away by the amazing flat top picking-he really out does himself on this one.

Hope you enjoyed this Pickin’ & Grinnin’ In The Kitchen Spot-did you get the surprise? Did the flat top picking blow you out of your chair? Not bad for a guitar that was found in a barn with a family of rats living in it uh?

    I also had trouble hearing the lyrics but that boy can flat pick a tune on that flat top box but I don’t have a clue to what he was singing past blood on the ceiling, walls and the floor and I’m not sure that was what I heard. Maybe the rat poop cured the wood and gave that flat top a mellow tone, thankful to be rid of the rat family and serving the purpose it was meant to bring life to a song.

    Absolutely amazing, Paul is, Tipper! What a fine song! A musician once said it doesn’t matter what language or genre a song is. If your feet are moving is the true test of a fine song!
    Incredibly talented Paul is! :))

    That was amazing.
    But I had a hard time with my audio, my computer’s not so great. Any chance there are lyrics anywhere? I’ll try again when the kids are up and I can turn it up loud. . .. I love gotcha songs. . ..

    Great song, Paul!
    And some mighty fancy flat top pickin’, too!
    You gotta have some tough fingers for all those slides.
    Thanks, Tipper!
