Jimi


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Jimi is a song about my brother in law, who has been a strong positive influence for me, as a child and throughout my life. He lives in Northern Ontario, happily married to my sister for 50 years now. I am on the West Coast so I don't see Jimi near as much as I would like to, but I think of him often.

Lyrics
Jimi is a friend, Jimi is a friend of mine,
When I was young, Jimi helped me keep in line,
If you know Jimi, you got a friend real fine.
If you know Jimi, you got a friend real fine,
If you need Jimi, Jimi gonna give you time,
You can count on Jimi, I'm so glad to call him mine.
Happy birthday Jimi, Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday Jimi, Happy birthday to you,
I wish I was there to raise a glass or two, with you.
Happy birthday Jimi, Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday Jimi, Happy birthday to you,
I wish I was there to spend some time with you.
Jimi is a friend, Jimi is a friend of mine,
When I was young, Jimi helped me keep in line,
If you know Jimi, you got a friend real fine.
Jimi is a friend, Jimi is a friend of mine,
When I was young, Jimi helped me keep in line,
If you know Jimi, you got a friend real fine,
If you know Jimi, you got a friend,
Real fine.

Thanks Andy
Thanks for the positive feedback. As far as the reverb goes, I am not all that accomplished with the possibilities in Garageband, ( I'm learning! ) but that one sounded good to me as well.

I like your picking, and that large reverb makes it sound like you're playing in a cathedral. Nice job!

I enjoy all kinds of music but I tend to favour the quieter, softer tones of nylon strings.... [see more]
