I named this little tune after me! My little buddy Mohawk passed away a several days ago and I have just been lost without him. I’m totally heartbroken. I didn’t know it could even get this bad. A little more than fourteen years of everyday companionship.
Like so many times before, I should have practiced this tune more before I recorded it. (tuned down half step, playing as though in the key of D, only two chords of D & A)
Randy, nice tune and fiddling...Mike liked it too. Enjoyed listening. We're so sorry to hear about Mohawk...we know the pain...our dogs are such a huge part of the family. Take care, and keep on a-fiddling.
Thanks Scott, and hello Amos and Cooter. I don’t know about another pup, I don’t think I could go through this again. Me and Mohawk, we had each other’s back.
As for the tune, yes I wrote it one afternoon in about forty-five minutes, it’s taken me a solid month to learn it and get this far along. I would like to get it a little cleaner and maybe just a little bit faster.
I have always had dogs, but after the last one went I decided I couldnt take the heartbreak anymore. I feel for you, people who dont have dogs dont know what its like, I still miss them years later, hope you start feeling good again soon.
Thank you Anja, I know you have recently been through this yourself. It’s been a hard lick for me. Still is. But yes, lots of good memories, he was a blast, a real comedian. His is the story of a Dog and his human.
Mohawk’s grave is in a quiet and shady place. When a breeze blows through the surrounding tall pines, it sure does make for a lonesome call. This small stream is only twenty yards away from the grave. You can hear the water running through several stair step water falls. Sycamore Springs keeps the stream running year around. There are several wading pools along the way but the water is to cool for me. It never bothered Mohawk though, he would bust em wide open. He liked this one best; it was just the right depth for him. His grave is up on the left bank.
