Description
My 10 year old son, AJ was playing the Kalimba and we recorded him and added my wife, Maureen on guitar. Then I 'pencilled' in the bass, strings, etc later on. I may add some hand drums later. There are some lyrics about our grandson who had not yet been born. Not sure where the lyrics are, but here is the song. AJ was reading along with the lyrics and tapping out his interpretation on the Kalimba. This song makes me think about life and how those who are still with us mean so much more now. It was difficult maintaining the tempo as the song was never setup for it, so I gave up trying to force everything to fit... so if it bugs you, my apologies. whuduyagonna do?

This is a really cool idea
I think it came together pretty well. I would say that the acoustic guitar is the rhythm point in the song and it holds it all together. The other elements come and go as they tell their story. I like it.
Keep on Bro,
Stephen

Nothing like family music
Your ten year old son did a great job playing the kalimba, and Maureen sounds wonderful on the other instruments. We should all make music together instead of watching tv. This is cool.

family music
Great idea Roxy. But what about Love Boat re-runs? We are kind of working on something now that she and I are about to add vocals too. perhaps we should send you the file....

to listen to... the rockers are a perfect fit for this story of a song. It has such a beautiful innocence and appreciation of life. Well done. Thanks for posting.
