  1. So what I was trying to convey was from the perspective of someone who has shown their love and the person still questions that fact. And that if they were able to do these things, would that person then believe that the love was true.
  2. Wrote and roughly recorded this while on vacation. Ever Been VI If I said I love you In a thousand different ways Or lassoed The truth Just for you to give away If I climbed Highest hills And I parted all the seas If I gathered The stars Tell me then would you believe Tell me then Tell me then Would you believe VII If I swayed The moon Into giving tides freewill And suspended All of time Making all the clocks stand still If I talked The sky Into only setting suns Little darling You would know You've ever been the only one Youve ever been You've ever been The only one VIII if I persuaded Gravity Into simply letting go Or whispered To the wind Convincing it to never blow If I talked The sky Into only setting suns Little darlin You would know You've ever been the only one You've ever been You've ever been The only one
  3. Been working on this one for a bit. Gonna finally have some quiet recording time end of this month. Hope to get this one and a few more rough cut. Let me know what you think. There's a grey cloud always follows me But it never wants to rain Never wants to cool things down Never wash away the pain Sunshine lying straight ahead So bright it makes me blind But it never seems to get one step nearer Not matter how I try Cause I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows A story lost between the lines Shadow of a ghost Past won't ever call my name Hell, Heaven even knows I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows Bury my head behind a smile Hoping no one else will know Facade of a circus clown But no one gets the joke Searching for some solid ground But I fear I'm sinking in Everytime I climb back up You know I get knocked down again Cause I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows A story lost between the lines Shadow of a ghost Past won't ever call my name Hell, Heaven even knows I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows Feeling like a stranger As I wander though the crowd Lost inside a dead end dream Where time has come unwound Wind cuts cold accross my face Chills me to the bone Trying to find some hope and grace But I end up here alone Cause I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows A story lost between the lines Shadow of a ghost Past won't ever call my name Hell, Heaven even knows I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows Past won't ever call my name Hell, Heaven even knows I'm no one To nobody From a place nobody knows
  4. As always very well done. The only thing I would add is that when I read it before listening, it "played" at a much faster tempo.
  5. So I have gotten to where I think it should be. I really like it. If I can ever get everyone out of the house I will get it recorded
  6. Thank you for the feedback. This is the 3rd or 4th stab at this one. Once I start singing it I am sure there are some phrasings or words that will have to change. I am not sure about "unfinished". I feel like if I were to another verse or a few more lines, it would take it to a place that becomes to lengthy and wordy. I like the "story" as it is. I know my "process" isn't normal but I always start with the words and then fit the melody around them. I also have never sat down to write a song. They kinda come from this unknown place and I just ride the wave. I have tried before but they always get scrapped and sound forced. Good thing I have a day job. Ha!
  7. So edit done. I think I got all the bugs and fat out. The "work like hell..." line is a little weak IMO. But the rest I really like. Sings well to with the melody in my head. Simple chord progression. Hope to get recorded after the holidays, if the world doesn't explode before then. Randall is a good man Lives out on the coast All he's wanted from his life Is a chance to be the most But it's part time at the Circle K Making coffee overnights Spends his time inside his head Waiting on morning light He dreams of all the places He has seen on his TV Whole world seems so far away And this ain't living free The last piece to his puzzle Would be someone to walk beside Someone he could call his own Someone to run and hide No one ever notices When time is standing still Dare to take that leap of faith Maybe they never will Only time will tell If any dreams come true I'll just hold on to the one Made for me and you Lisa is a wild one Hitch hiked to the coast Shoes and shirt upon her back And belief in the Holy Ghost A Midwest farmers daughter She never had to try Blue streak in her bleach blond hair Deep green summer eyes ​​​​​​ ​​​Sure she should be famous Just needs her one big break Yearns to see her name in lights No matter what it takes The only thing she's missing Is someone to hold her tight Someone to whisper in her ear "Everything will be alright." No one ever notices When time is standing still Dare to take that leap of faith Maybe they never will Only time will tell If any dreams come true I'll just hold on to the one Made for me and you She came in through the front door Bell cut through the time Smiled at Randall sitting there Headed for a box of wine Wine up on the counter Menthols from display Swipes her card, smiles again "Hope you have a nice day." No one ever notices When time is standing still Dare to take that leap of faith Maybe they never will Only time will tell If any dreams come true I'll just hold on to the one Made for me and you Randall grins and shakes his head Afraid to face his fears Another glance up at the clock Lisa just disappears

    Low watt at home amp

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I just couldn't ask for it back. So I ended up with. Vox Mini Beatle. Guy made me a good dral at GC on a floor model. Time to start playing
  9. I tried searching but don't see how so I will apologize in advance for a topic I am sure has been covered. I am looking for a small, at home amp to practice and possible record with. Not stuck on tubes, just want to be able to dial in the "right" tone. Just for rhythm guitar, no leads. Think Black Crowes, The Faces, Lucero, etc..... kind of tone. A little gritty but not over the top distorted. At one time I had a Vox Ac4tv and kick myself now for giving it to my nephew. Now can't find another one. Anyway, suggestions? BTW I have been looking at the Orange 20rt but the 8 inch speaker worries me .the Orange 35rt may be to loud to get to the tone I'm looking for. And the VIX AC4 1-12 that I am sure sounds great but probably the same problem.
  10. Normal stuff. Pain and hurt seem to trigger ideas. And then out of nowhere a story song comes along.
  11. Wrote this over the last couple days. Have a melody in my head. Just need to work out, refine and record. Some places sing a little "stumbly" but that usually works itself out when I start recording and singing it out loud. Let me know what you think- Time Will Tell Randall was a good man Lived out on the coast All he wanted from his life Was a chance to be the most Part time at the Circle K Making coffee overnights Spent his time inside his head Waiting for morning light He dreamed of all the places He had seen on his TV The whole world seemed so far away And this ain't living free The last piece to his puzzle Was someone to walk beside Someone he could call his own Someone to run and hide No one ever notices When time is standing still Dare to take that leap of faith Rekon they never will Only time will tell If any dreams come true I'll just hold on to the one Made for me and you Lisa was a wild one Hitch hiked to the coast Shoes and shirt upon her back And belief in the Holy Ghost A Midwest farmers daughter She never had to try Blue streak in her bleach blond hair Deep green summer eyes She knew she was a actress Just needed her big break Work like hell to earn her keep The rest she'll just take The only thing was missing Is someone to hold her tight Someone to whisper in her ear "Everything will be alright." No one ever notices When time is standing still Dare to take that leap of faith Rekon they never will Only time will tell If any dreams come true I'll just hold on to the one Made for me and you She came in through the front door Bell announced her time Smiled at Randall sitting there Headed for a box of wine Wine up on the counter Menthols from display Swipes her card, smiles again "Hope you have a nice day."

  12. I hope this is the right place. I have always wanted to take lessons but everyone seems to teach with a "lead guitar" slant. I have always wanted to just be a rhythm guitar player. Strum patterns, walk up and downs, turn around, different chord structures to add "flavor", turnarounds, some basic theory to break away from I IV V progressions,etc..... I know there are some foundations that apply but endless scales and the like are not what I am looking for. Any directions I can go?
  13. First tweak done. Pretty happy with it. Just have to make sure it "sings" now.
