The Songster isn’t afraid to genre-jump midset. He is, afterall, the Songster, not the rockster or the R&Bster.
Funfact: in today’s song the banjo solo is played by me. I recorded it on my phone and sent it to Parry. My wife got me a banjo for Christmas so I have been playing it for a few months. This is my first time playing, or recording publicly. I love playing banjo and it is coming a lot more naturally to me than expected, though I have a long way to go. I’m no Scruggs.

In other news… I think I am going to stop producing Ask Axe Cop episodes, at least until I finish this story. I am doing too much right now. Doing so many different projects I am not finishing any of them. Songster pages will keep coming out on Thursdays and Bearmageddon always comes out on Wednesdays.

This might be my favorite song so far. Hey good job on the banjo! Aint nobody is Scruggs but you did his legacy justice. Or at least.. his arm-acy.
Thanks! I never thought I’d be rocking the banjo. I LOVE bluegrass but I thought I was too old and too busy to pick up a new instrument. Turns out my guitar and slapbass skills translate over pretty well so I got a good headstart.
I was dying of laughter on this one! This is a great song!
Parry is amazing. Hopefully you’ve checked out his crazy library of free music on his website. Our whole family loves it.
Oh I’ve loved his stuff ever since I discovered it back in college. Bought a few songs of his off i tunes for my ipod .
The banjo solo wouldn’t be a reference to the webcomic “Max Overacts”, would it?
It’s not likely to be since I’ve never read it, but you never know what I do in my sleep and how they influences what I do in my waking hours.
Awesome! The music adds a whole new dimension that really makes use of the digital format instead of simply longing to be a printed adventure.
I’m surprised no one else has commented on this, but in the first panel “were foxes” => “where foxes”.
Or right before that, “They come a from planet…”.
