Description : I wish that I had hair just like Bobby Dylan.
Maybe then the world would be willing,
To listen to my song,
We shall overcome,
The ones who rule by fear,
Leaving for too long our freedoms to be squandering.

I have a dream one day truth and justice will prevail.
The winds of hope and love will fill each sail.
When we let freedom ring,
In every song we sing,
Together we can bring,
A world where all Gods children live in harmony.

I wish that I had hair just like Bobby Dylan.
Just maybe then you would be willing,
To make a stand and sing with me,
A brotherhood in symphony,
Jangling discords turn to be,
A world where all Gods children live in harmony.
Voltage

    Briana,
    I am humbled to be mentioned in any conversation with the Beatles. Thank you. When I first began work on Hair Like Bob Dylan, I intended it to be somewhat of a spoof. However as things developed it became a very sincere expression.Happy you like it and thankful for such a kind comment.

    Hi Voltage,
    Wow, what I nice clear sound. I like this song a lot. I just ordered 1,000 files of Harmonia royalty free loops on a disk in different styles.
    Your singing is good too. Sounds like Dylan to me if I close my eyes. ;)
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the compliments on the Dylan piece Randy.
    I want to try and do songs in the style of Lennon and McCartney, Hendrix, The Who, Mountain and others that influenced me. Sort of like what the Rutles are to the Beatles. A tribute to the music and musicians I love. Thanks for your encouragement and inspiration Randy. BTW, Love those flickr photos you posted....awesome.

    Krook,
    So happy you like the Dylan tribute. I was so inspired after viewing the Martin Scorsese documentary "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan". It's special and very worth tracking down if you have not seen it. I just had to create a sincere expression in the style of Bob Dylan after experiencing this beautiful film. Thank you for sharing such kindness. Much appreciated. Voltage

    Geo,
    Thank you so much for the kind review. Yes I am playing the harmonica for what it's worth. I use it to make Dylan noises during my solo acoustic set. Funny how just a couple notes on that funny little instrument can set a mood. This song actually started out as a spoof, a joke, but after I got into it I realized, what's so funny about peace, love and understanding? The lyric took many weeks to reveal itself and I struggled with it only to once again realize, that's what it's all about. Thank you for understanding Geo. I am grateful, humbled, inspired.

    Rashid,
    Thank you so much. This might seem to be cut and dried simple, but it took me quite awhile to make happen. I am encouraged to find other musicians who seem to understand that it is the spirit of a song that makes it what it is. I am inspired by your kindness. Thanks Rashid.

    Hey Sky...this is fantastic!

    Planet,
    You know I figured you would be one of those people who would appreciate this expression for what it is. It seems to me that our music has diminished in importance in many ways over the years. It used to be so powerful. I have hope that this hidden power will once again emerge from the thick layers of over saturation to move mountains. Thanks for getting it Planet. There is hope after all.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.
