Description
OK. This is a little piece I recorded in 2004 at friend's home on Pro Tools. I ran it through GB to EQ it a bit more.
I recorded about 25 songs in that 2004 session. We didn't pay too much attention to the quality, unfortunately. I did some acoustic songs in one or two takes just to get them down. And we also did about 10-12 rock songs with bass, guitar and drums.

I've been thinking about posting some of these from that 2004 session, before posting some of my newer ones. (They're sounding really good, I must say). Tell me if you think it's cool to post some from these sessions.

"Blue Sky" is just a working title. I asked my daughter to say the first thing that came to her mind about 20 minutes ago and she said "Blue Sky".

I'm not the most graceful guitar player in the world, but I try. There are a few gooners in there. But, tell me what you think of the tune.

Excuses, excuses.

Dave

P.S. Thanks for everybody's support recently. It means a lot to me.

There is actually a version with lyrics. Half in English and half in German. Maybe later when I have writers block.

yes, by all means, post more of the 2004 session, if it's anything like this! Very lovely guitar playing - "gooners" - I'll laugh about that word for days. Really enjoyed this, Mr. Lamp

Gooners
I've often heard John Lennon refer to those kind of mistakes as Gooners. I thought that was a perfect word.

Thanks Karen,

Wow...
What a MOODY and lovely piece David. I wish you'd write words for this!

By all means, let's hear more from your 2004 sessions.

Be well!

Words
We talked in the chat room. As I said I do have lyrics and the whole nine yards for this one. Maybe, I'll record it in my next session.

Thanks Mr. Wark,

Seriously Amazingly Cool
It's hard for me to say that it's my favorite piece by you, yet, as you've had some other amazing numbers. But I think this is my favorite song in a while. I love the playing (I was listening and didn't hear any gooners) and the emotion of the piece.

When I get a new MP3 player, this is going on it.

Hey Tobi. Nice to see you around. Hope you get that new mp3 player soon.

Und Danke,

Nice little piece
This is a pretty guitar piece and the recording has a haunting tone. This would be a fun piece to pile ambient sounds on to really add to the spookiness. I say post the bits from the session. I think the songs people aren't sure about posting are usually my favorite.

Good idea
I had a version of this with it played backward simultaneously. It sounded cool, but it was a little busy for my taste.

Thanks Brother,

I've got tons of songs. Some were just recorded not so well. Either I would have to redo them or try to fix them with GB.

I found a really cool version of "One" by Harry Nilsson the other day. Too bad I can't post it here, though.

Thanks Vic. You're a good man.

Dave - I'm late yet again!
This sounds like a really interesting start for something - I like the depth of the mix.

Definite shades of V.H. (esq) in the tone.

Post away!

You are their King!

I really like those buzzy "doink" sounds that you make on this song. I hope you post the rest of them. My iPod still has room for more macjams tunes.

Seriously Dave, you are the King of the Goons.
