Description : This might be spitrual, not nessicarilly religous. Sunday morning my wife and I packed up the car before church so we could go straight to the lake afterwards. As we entered church early we herd the choir practiceing "Let it rain" A simple song, yet a favorite of mine. During service all the songs were about rain. I got to thinking how I've always wanted to do a song about rain. Think CCR and everyone else. So I planed to sit at the lake and work on it. Well it looked like rain so we didn't go. Monday night at jail it was lightly raining as we went in.After I did praise and worship I play softy in the back ground and came up with this. It was a bad storm out side and I'm thinking about my lyrics. Softly falling rain my but. As we left the other 2 guys had umbrellas that the wind destroyed and we all got soaking wet.

I would compare this to Jim Croche or John Denver.
I usually don't say what I think about my songs, but I really like it.

    Listening to your tracks after a year, my bad.

    I really loved this track, big fan of your voice. Just with the help of guitar and vocals you have you have expressed all the emotions so nicely. Yes I agree that's the true art. Thanks a lot sir for uploading such a great track.

    My wife has to listen to me play songs over and over again till I basically have it memorized and can play it without thinking. I think that sometimes she just doesn't realize what a genius I am. LOL. Thanks for listening.

    But this struck a chord for one reason or another. Reading others comments and thinking about things, it just kind of makes me think back to when I was younger, and how it didn't seem so damn complicated. Need some of that rain to come around and get a good soul cleansing, know what I mean?

    Damn, now I just want to go ride my bike and run around in the woods or build a fort or something.

    Excellent song man.

    People always run for shelter when it rains. As long as there is no lightning, I walk a little slower than normal and just enjoy the feel of the rain on my skin. There is nothing like coming home soaked and cold from the rain, taking a hot shower to warm up, and then snuggle under the covers with a good book. That to me is absolute and total relaxation.

    Taken back to a moment in the summer of '90, I think. I just remember that it was back when I lived in Va Beach and on one particular day it started raining and instead of seeking shelter inside my friends and I stayed and played out in it. I'd say that it was probably in the mid 80s that day and the rain was nice and cold. About the same as the water in an indoor swimming pool. I tell you, once we were all completely drenched it was one of the most refreshing sensations a person could feel with their cloths on. Ok, that was a bad joke ending, but it did feel really great. And I remember that once the rain stopped it kinda made me sad. As if our good little time was over with the passing of the storm clouds. Thanks for the flashback!

    I'm smiling reading your review. I like this song a lot. It can be looked at from a religous aspect with obvious meanings. Or even looked at from an aspect of just letting the crap we heap on ourselves go. A new beginning, a fresh start. I believe we are the ones that judge ourselves the worst. Rain is a symbol of the holy spirit, but it's also a symbol of the rains washing being us letting our own judgement of ourselves go. My opinion of myself was worse than anyone elses. And I'm happy with my life now. I wasn't for a long time. But then the lyrics can mean something completely different to you. Thank you so much for your review. It mean a lot to me. It's my favorite review.

    Hi Blair,
    Getting around catch up on some listening to tracks here today.
    I like this song you did here. I liked the words and could hear them clearly and sounds heartfelt. I think a little less reverb would bring the guitar and voice to the front more in the mix.
    You have a good voice too!

    Thanks for uploading it here,
    Randy

    I agree with Bill...an untouched,one take recording can have it's pitfalls...but the benefits far outweigh any quality control issues.
    A truly delightful piece,sung with sincerity and meaning...believe me when I say I know all about rain and how it effects us spiritually,emotionally and physically.....great work!...cheers planet

My brother and I were doing some acoustic music together in my room, just having fun; came out with this; I immediately got on my DAW and recorded it before I forgot how ti went lol. Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.

Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!

My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.

Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...

Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.

Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!

Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)
