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.

    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.

There’s something so special
When you love a pup
Some will add more of them
And some only need one
But we all do it
For reasons all the same
We desire that friendship
That only dogs give

When you love a dog
You have a best friend
When a dog loves you back
It’s like riches, it’s a win
You can go on adventures
You will bond in your pack
When you love a dog
That dog loves you back

When the Potter created them
He must’ve had us in mind
A magnificent creation
So loyal and so kind
A companionship ever
Rewarding each day
I thank you so, Lord
For my dog and me


I have had many
And lost many too
I’ve loved each one of them
And they’ve loved me too
They’ve all shown me joy
Made me a better man
It must be a part of
The Great Master’s plan!

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.

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 right…intro 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.

Description : This is the best backing track I could come up with for my Country (?) lyrics. It has taken 4 years (off & on)to come up with a finished tune. I tried to get someone else to sing it to no avail, so I did it. I misplaced the audio file s I don't know if any Looperman folks loops are in it.
