🎵 “Far Out In Oregon” (Original) - Live Music for Hive Open Mic 131

in Hive Open Mic5 months ago (edited)

Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.


Oh man, I've missed this community! Feels so good to be here today. This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: "Orgullo Patrio," and in English this means: "Homeland Pride." In my life, I've been blessed with several different home places. Although I spent much of my youth in Lander, Wyoming, I was born in Oregon, and I enjoyed being there, returning most summers to be with our relatives.

Oregon is hauntingly beautiful, with its incredible waterfalls, vivid greens in the scenery, and various coastlines: volcanic cliffs, brown beaches, sand dunes, and trees that seem to walk into the water. The beauty finds its way into the people too, naturally. I remember family reunions there, with my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins... as well as our neighboring magpies, crawdads, and coyotes. Wild fun.

Far Out In Oregon

Behind eyes closed
My heart goes coasting
Over the edge of Oregon
Getting my life in motion

Windswept shores
Old growth forests
Cattle guards on country roads
Fields filled with roses

Far out in Oregon
This tornado goes to unwind
Blowing in the breeze to the great big ocean
Gonna ease this little troubled mind

Moving forward
Further inward
My heart remembers
December blizzards

Reflections on Crater Lake
Listening to meadowlarks
With evening coyotes
Singing in the cedar trees

Far out in Oregon...

My heart advances
To future glances
New songs new dances
Adventures and romances

In Bend and Redmond
Ashland and Portland
Cannon Beach
With loved ones with me

Far out in Oregon...




Hive Open Mic - Week 131 is underway right now, with the current theme: “Orgullo Patrio." In English, this means: "National Pride," or "Homeland Pride." We introduce new themes every Sunday, inviting musicians to share a common current. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment. There is still time to jump in and enjoy this week's Hive Open Mic event!

Hugs flying back and indeed, it's a joyful reunion. Happy to see you again 😊

Beautiful song my friend. How beautiful your guitar and the whole song sounds. It has a folk perfume in the Dylan style. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for finding a Dylan reminder in this song. That's a high compliment! In fact, his songwriting is a great influence to me, yes indeed. I appreciate your words, and thanks so much for listening.

Amigo, hermosa letra, nos gustó mucho, se escucha muy bien en la guitarra, y en su voz, exelente presentación

Always delightful hearing from you, little friend.

Siempre encantadora saber de ti, amiguita.

Amigo cabelindsay que hermoso e impresionante trabajo, un sonido fabuloso me encantó 🤩 muchas felicitaciones.💛 Gracias por compartir con todos nosotros.❣️

How good it is to have you back dear brother, we missed that voice and those particular arpeggios that you usually give us. This week's theme is very appealing for those who love their places of origin and their countries.

Your description of Oregon makes us think that it is a magical place and we have no doubt that it is, we are sure that we can say that you are a proud Oregonian.

The lyrics of this song are beautiful, worthy of a place that inspires artists for its natural beauty and its people. We loved this great work you have brought. We hope to see you here more often. A big hug!

I'm so happy to be here, and to feel the connection with you, Omar and Dina. Thank you for being a strong, steady voices of encouragement and inspiration. 🌟

I had no idea you are from the State. You remind me of some friends in the US who were born in the countryside. No matter where they live, they always talk about their homeland with rivers, mountains, waterfalls, and forests. I can literally feel the wind from your melody and the way you pick the guitar strings. I feel like listening to some American 60s country music star 😊

I admire how your music videos are getting excellently clear, lively, and colorful these days as well. You're a true inspiration for everyone!

Aw. Sweetest comment ever, thank you so much. It's such a joy knowing you, my friend, and connecting through the tunes.

Ur voice is amazing 👏👏👏

It's really been a while you dropped a content brother..

It's great tuning in man!
Have a great day.

Your presence will always be a reason of joy Cabe, you don't know how much I missed your beautiful songs, they reach the soul and always bring that peace that you harbor in your heart ☮️🕊️💖!!

I think you managed to bring together very well the essence of Oregon in the lyrics, taking into account what you say about its people, its landscapes and everything you've lived there; I loved the Country style of the song, your voice sounded great 🙌😀💛... you were sorely missed Brother, it's good to see you back ¡¡¡Welcome Home 🤜🤛!!!

Wow that sounds amazing! Sometimes music just makes a movie play in your head, full of ideas of how you would add your own layer to the song if you were there to jam/help! I loved it.

May I ask about your right index finger that you do not use? You play so excellently without it!

Thanks for your great comment, and for noticing that detail of my finger picking style. Yeah, sometimes, the strumming patterns I find have different finger movements. Other songs include that index finger. I usually just zone in, as if hypnotized by the riff, and the fingers do the work without my knowing. ✨

Brother, good to see you back at the Hive Open Mic. Glad to enjoy your inspirational music again.

From what you describe Oregon is a magical land that has it all. With a dream landscape. How proud you must be to belong to such a beautiful place.

A hug and best vibes for you, Cabe!

I hadn't played a song by my admired boss for a long time, and I see him with a good beard. As for the song, it's a very nice song, with smooth turns and very nice harmony of voice and guitar. Sincere congratulations, Cabe.

The real musician, you are great in song writter, i hear like a classic song, and the place soubd like forest that i feel,

By the way, your face is simmilar with dave ( the drummer of nirvana)

How funny you mention David Grohl, yes I used to get that comparison a lot. At times, I think he and I sport the same beard and hair. :) Thanks for your comment!

Great to watch your entry, your good look perfectly matched with your nice voice, I cannot but notice the lovely skill on the instrument as well, nice meeting you.

Ah, I'm glad to begin knowing you. Thank you for noticing a resemblance between my look and my sound. I appreciate you.

The way you described Oregon makes me want to be there right now, I'm already imagining those beautiful landscapes and I hope to have the opportunity to visit them someday.

You don't know how happy I am to see you again dear friend, we have missed you a lot, your voice and your music give me a lot of peace and tranquility.

Aw, thank you, sister. I've missed you too! How did you manage to injure your arm? I'm sending you a hummingbird hug, with a gentle touch.
