I’ve been so busy these past few weeks that I haven’t visited the forum in a while. I also haven’t picked up my guitar in weeks. So today I picked it up and out came this song!!

That just came out? You need to pick up your guitar more often. Typical brooding, atmospheric sound. I think it works well as an instrumental.

Thanks Gav. The problem I have is that when I pick up the guitar some riff will come out and if I like it then I’ll spend hours building a song around it until it’s finished. I rarely let it sit for another day. But then I’ll listen to it for a few days and wind up hating the guitar solos so I’ll re-do those parts. Lol.

With this one the main acoustic riff came out first and I thought it sounded cool so then I made the drum track, added the electric guitar parts, bass line, and keys, and finally the guitar solo.

Next up…since I just finished watching the McGreggor / Mayweather fight, I think I’ll write a song called ‘I want my $100 bucks back’.

you caught lightning in a bottle! ominous and foreboding without being depressing. the intro with the string section serves the song well. great guitar playing as always, Sir! I think this could work with or without vocals.

Hey thanks Brad. Jenny might give this one a go so we’ll see how it ends up.
