Am I Burnt Out?

I have better things to do, I know. But here I am, figuring out how to put music files on my blog. It's been so long since I've played my guitar the calluses are gone and my fingers are clay, but I couldn't resist trying out Garageband, which lets me record to my laptop and then apply effects. The ditty below combines "heavy blues" and "screeching guitar," which has a sort of a Big Brother and the Holding Company feel to it. Then I found this imeem.com site, which could be habit forming. I call it Acid Blues.
