Hello everyone. Looks like I will not be playing the accordian no more. I am givin it up. It is time for me to get help and help others. Thank you to everyone who has came out to hear me and thank you to all for the good advice given. And for those of you who think I am just sitting back and having a good laugh you know what to do.
In saying "Givin' it up", you mean all together or the band?
givin it all up the band the accordian everything
following mr horace?
mother finally clamping down?
moving to hawaii?
new career in daytime tv?
Aaron if there is one thing that no one can take, it's your talent ! The band is one thing, that can be a big stresser on someone, but to give up something that gives you serenity, you're stronger than me ! The one good thing about that accordion is the fact that when you're tired of hearing it, you can close it, unlike other things in life...
Crap, im a gonna start drinking if all of this soap opera junk don't stop.
Once again, I picked a bad day to give up sniffing glue... but what I think Aaron is saying is... he's moved on to the fiddle. When you've got so much talent, and you shut off one faucet, it's bound to flow out somewheres else.
haha no thats not what i mean i already know the fiddle I just have some things goin on right now. I dont really know where I need to be. I like the fact about the accordian you can always close it when you are tired of hearing it but you cant do that to other things.
Well if that's what makes you happy. Move on!! People get tired of things and go to something else. Cest la vie!!
i just had a brain fart. Just cause people get down that doesnt mean they have to quit doing what they love. I got started out in cajun music cause of my grandmother who is now dead. Then i got to thinking of how much she woulda liked to have wipped my ass if I even thought about quitting when she was alive. Just cause times get tuff that doesnt mean to quit playing that means i should use my god given talent even more. THe accordian has always got me out of bad times so I picked up my accordian and just started playing for about 7 hours this morning. Now I feel better.
Did it ever occur to you that you may need to see a doctor. You have got some serious problems guy.
You're wabbling around in pirogue, w/ no paddle and no pole to navigate with in the middle of a dry field. You could always fish!
......... STORY TIME ..............
Came upon a big ole huge field of dry weeds once.
In the middle of this field was guy sitting in jon boat fishing with a pole, in all that dirt and dry weeds. He was serious as could be. Asked him: Ya catching anything?.. nope! What bait ya using? Worm!
I drove on up to this house after that, near where he was. This older woman come out on the porch as I drove up. Poked my head out the window and said;
"Ma'am, is that your boy out in that field fishing?" 'Yeah, that's my boy'
"Ma'am, don't know if he's quite right with the world, no offence nor anything."
' Nah that's quite alright, I can tell ya he's slow for sure, but he's a good boy.'
"Ma'am, that boys fishing in a dry field."
'Oh I know it, and that one loves to fish I can tell you, always has. A dang good fisherman, that boy is.'
"Ever think of having him checked to see if something can help him out with matters?"
'Well , yeah I thought about it.. but we aint got much money and food doesn't come all that cheap these days... and then ya see we can always use the fish.'
Funny ... but not so funny.
There's always help and hope for those that seek it.
Nonc you know whoooo
Dude YOU better not give it up!!! WE aint got started yet...I had the same brain fart once..One afternoon I sold 2 guitars, a banjo and a set of drums...vowed never to touch them again..That was one stupid move on my part and I regret the hell out of it...It'll pass whatever it is..You're young and got alot of road ahead of you...It'll get better. Call if you need anything at all.....
Do me a favor and keep playing.I'v played with some
real good accordion players, and you rank as one of the
top,young players,in my book.Just wish we could have
the cd we cut and hear.GREAT old stuff!
So don't let another fantastic player die,because
of hard times,we all have them.

You should know by now you have no control over it.
You might quit for a month a year or 10 but youll be
You are sooo right Mr.Elzie, it would be nice to finish the C.d that you all started.Being me and Aaron's Dad,has offered to pay for it so many times.All thats left is for aaron,to relay the accordian tracks.Take care,we miss seeing you and jamming Aarons Parents.
Hey CajunGreenEyes, can I buy you a gallon of EverClear?

I guess most would like to help you stay out of a padded cell. Watch those brain farts they could blow your mind.
