Trail of Tears... (Redux)



 Genre: Rock

Get Flash to see this player.

I have re recorded several tracks and I have remixed it as well.. Special Thanks to: Todd Larsen (Albino Squirrel) For the stunning lead. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with such an amazing guitarist.
This is a song dedicated to my Native American roots...….
About 4000 Cherokee died as a result of forcible removal from their ancestral lands in the winter of 1838 - 39.... The route they traversed and the journey itself became known as "The Trail of Tears" ........... The mothers of the Cherokee grieved so much that the chiefs prayed for a sign to lift the mother's spirits and give them strength to care for their children. From that day forward, a beautiful new flower, a rose, grew wherever a mother's tear fell to the ground. The rose is white, for the mother's tears. It has a gold center, for the gold taken from the Cherokee lands, and seven leaves on each stem that represent the seven Cherokee clans that made the journey. To this day, the Cherokee Rose prospers along the route of the "Trail of Tears"...

Nice guitar work. I'm a sucker for heavy reverb thumps and spacey bleeps. Good job, Louis.

Trail of Tears
Atmospheric piece that portrays the emotions you talk about in the introduction. Fine playing. (Small thing - perhaps trim the end to get rid of the silence?)
