New Song

It's just a rough draft...

But what the heck...I'll post it any way!

It's a little too "Alt Country", and not like the rest of my stuff, but sometimes things just create themselves that way.

And yeah...it's a little sappy...I know.

Oh I love it! You write songs almost as long as mine are! Haha.

Professionally speaking, I'd cut the intro by half and reduce the solo drum intro to 2 measures. But if you don't mind, I'm going to take this to work and listen to it on my headphones. :) The chords are awesome. We should jam together when you're in town.

Rock on!

The drum intro serves as a click-track for the drummer, so the whole drum intro wlll be non-existant ;}

I'm narcoleptic...Phone numbers, Friend Birthdays and lyrics are not easy to remember. That's why I write short songs :)

I blame it on a strict upbringing of Punk music, but truth is I can't remember lyrics to save my butt. I HAVE to write short songs :)

I have MANY close friends and musicians in Portland...all of whom should be enjoyed. Fuzzball is good. I LOVE the STrangled Darlings. Three Legged Torso will blow your mind! Besides being friends, they are amazing musicians!

Thanks for listening!

What a great little song.........and What a lucky daughter...... all my dad ever sang was a military yell in the a.m. to wake us and occasionally "you are my sunshine"!

Having never heard your music before I must say you are very talented. What a precious gift to be given to someone who has endured so much. That man upstairs sure works in mysterious ways.

Thanks...that's nice to hear.

I wish they were here for Christmas, but that will not be the case. I don't see too many happy songs for awhile.

lol...me too...but I always feel like my songs just go on and on. I write too many lyrics! It's just hard to memorize them for a performance. I was always criticized for 1) writing too much song and 2) bringing a book of lyrics to look at for a show. *sigh*

Before I was diagnosed w/N I used to do evening gigs. I'd space during a song and suddenly realize I was right in the middle and didn't know what to sing! I was totally lost. lol I had to quit when I couldn't stay awake long enough to even get to the gig. Oh well. There's always the annual talent show at work. I was singing backup vocals in a band in Eugene for a couple of years, but that fizzled too for other reasons. Sure was fun tho.

I have MANY close friends and musicians in Portland...all of whom should be enjoyed. Fuzzball is good. I LOVE the STrangled Darlings. Three Legged Torso will blow your mind! Besides being friends, they are amazing musicians!

I'll have to check them out. I'm always looking for new music to enjoy! I sure wish I had the time and resources to go out and see live shows. I think those days are long gone now.

And I think 2 measures of your drum machine click track would actually sound good at the beginning. Or some sort of drum thing...live drummer works too. Just my humble opinion. Do what you like best. :)

Nothing rocks more than the white girl headbob! :)

My daughter is funny. She could NOT like it just because it's Dad making the sound...ya know? If am so proud of her though. She told me she wants a bass guitar (hinting that Dad is going to give her one of mine). I told her instruments find us as much as we find them, and she'd appreciate it more if she earned her own.

We'll see...If she's serious, she'll earn it.

I like it very much. Usually, my top picks in music are from the 80's. Walk of Life by Dire Straits is my all time fav. Anyway, this is cool! :rolleyes:
