My wife is a big fan of his work and I have to admit to you all that I know of some of his work, but that’s it.
Being a musician, I am more in tune with the composition of a song then the words itself. I understand that the words hold, to most listeners, it’s true essence and meaning. To me though, it’s the sound that is the driving force behind it.
While playing live I focus mostly on the guitar parts than what comes out of my mouth. I’ve never written any words to any of the songs I made in the past and probably never will in the future. They just do not move me or grab my attention like the beat does.
So hats off to Mr. Cohen and to his powerful lyrics and let’s hope he might rub off on my writing abilities, or lack there of!
Keep on Jammin’
