Description : I recently lost my dog of 13 years, "Lucy". I wrote this song as a tribute to her and to all of our family members with 4 legs and waggy tails. Doing this song has helped my heart to heal immensely. I hope you enjoy it.
I am performing all except for drums which I wrote in MIDI.

    TY buddy.
    Yes pets sure do have a way of working their way into your heart. They are always there for us. Lucy used to curl up at my feet when I was in my studio and when i was performing this song, out of habit I would look for her and then remember she was gone.
    I am not ashamed to admit that I shed many tears in the studio doing this song and I think my raw emotion showed through in the recording.
    Some people run for a bottle when they are sad....I run for my guitar lol...always have.

    Sorry to hear about your dog. My friend Jim and his wife just lost one of their dogs recently. It's great to see how much pets mean to their owners.

    A tribute song to your dog, straight from the heart!

    Time for a......puppy!

    Good to see you old fried and TYVM.
    Yes pets become surrogate children to their owners.
    As far as getting a puppy, we have worked with an animal rescue in the area for 7 years and a mixed 3 yr old dog we have fostered (her name is Panda because of her black and white markings) will be staying with us permanently. She has been a handful and is a little like TNT mixed with enriched uranium lol...she's nuts and strong but only about 18" tall. But she has a heart of gold and loves me/obsessed with me. She's home now.

    This track although it was for a sad occasion it is wonderful.

    Brilliant vocal too

    I considered writing a sad song but then I would have never been able to listen to it; I decided to make a song that would celebrate our lives together.

    Enjoy your dog and get lots of pics.
    We had 3 months to say goodbye to my old girl when we found out she had cancer. We spoiled her rotten.

Description : Here attached is a new country tune I put together using several loops I bought off a disk set. I call it 'Old Tyme Country' as it is close to being Bluegrass as well. (Bluegrass usually has a Mandoline, Fiddle and a 5-string Banjo, and a rhythm guitar at least).

This instrumental features no guitars or regular drums. Rhythm here is provided by a Dulcimer, a Shaker and a drum like instrument called a Djembe. (An instrument from Africa, looking like a tall Bongo drum)

An acoustic stand-up Bass is used along with a 4 string Banjo, and the Fiddle is the main instrument.
Put all these together and this is the sound you can have. Hope you'll like it.

Description : Hi ya,

Well, here is my latest country tune...called "Welcome to Nashville". It is an instrumental. Maybe someone will add vocals to it? Also I added a screenshot of the 'ProTools' program I used to put the song together so you can see what it looks like with in a software program as completed.

The song is uptempo featuring an acoustic guitar for rhythm, also an electric rhythm guitar doing more of a vamping sound to add in fill to the overall rhythm.

Also has lead guitar which is quite busy throughout, and Drums, Bass, fiddle and pedal steel round out the song.

Hope you like it.

Description : Just a simple country waltz featuring a number of instruments, and the main instrument...Pedal Steel guitar. Not an easy instrument to play and certainly not a cheap instrument to buy. Decent new ones start out at around $2,500, but like everything else, if you have the desire, 'you can do it'.
Drums, Fiddle are sample loops. Contains 2 rhythm with tremelo. Piano, and the usual Lead, Bass guitar.
Near the end.....they all play at once together.

Description : I had a dream a few years ago that my Mom was still alive and she met my wife for the first time. This song is about that dream.
This should be classed as Country Rock or Southern Rock but those genres aren't available.
Using a fender Strat on the left, Gibson Les Paul on the rightintro lead is the LP and outro lead is the Strat. Drums written in MIDI. Harmonica, vocals, bass performed by yours truly.
Feedback is always welcome.
