Description
On Fridays I usually pick up my wife for lunch and after I drop her off I take the long way home. I carry my camera and see if maybe I come upon something interesting to take a photo of. A lot of times I stray to the poor part of town in hopes to capture some old buildings or an old car... junk for that matter, something about the patina and how you can saturate the photo later on with post production software intrigues me. I found this old pink house which gave me an idea for lyrics to this tune which originally was my "Power of Trower" Project.

Thanks for taking the time to listen... I'm on a roll and don't want to stop.

I later listened to this in the car and yes the bass is way too over powering... Should have could have...

Lyrics
The Rest

They can say that we're not trying, working all day for their dreams to come true
Little pink houses is all we get with a little bit of food...

Still they play by their own rules
only the best for the rich and the rest for me and you

Cheating people out of their pay and let the government come through
Let you pay the tax for their sake more profits for them to abuse..

Oh they play by their own rules
only the best for the rich and the rest for you and me

Those who call themselves dreamers never dream for the likes of me or you
Shipping jobs to the feeble while their conscience is way over due...

And we pay for their own rules, 'cause
only the best for the rich and the rest for me and you

I'm glad you liked this. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment. I apologize for not taking more time to tweak the sound. It sounded OK on the monitors and headphones but I waited until after the post to test the mix on other players. In the car the bass was overwhelming and weakened the rest of the mix. I did not want to repost because I didn't want to lose your valuable feedback.

I used some settings in Logic, they have a pretty cool Tremolo pedal and I set the the strat pups between neck and middle. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Excellent guitars and song, John. I dig the little stutter thingy (?) on the kit in the bridge.

You must be on a roll - keep it up!

When it comes to drums
And recording for that matter, a lot of the results are by accident. Mostly I'm usually focused on the guitar. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

Getting a very Robin Trower vibe
John, I always enjoy your stuff here. Your vocals are just getting better and better each song I listen to. I made the Trower comment before I read your intro :)
Very cool post - maybe a little overpowering in the kick in places, but that just adds to the power.
Cheers from Oz,

Took a listen to this
trower tune-a-matic last night and it drew me back tonight for another deep listen in the phones.

You certainly could teach trower a lesson or two with this piece! Outstanding John! Thanks for the download too!

I'm glad you came back and listened to the end of the song... the chords at the ending are similar but seem to have a big impact. I'm with you.... it sounds ok with the cans.

Great groove, anchored by a thumping bass. Inventive guitar. Timely message as our middle class erodes beyond recognition.
