My latest original song, which was written with a specific theme in mind. Funny too that when I sat down to write this (the first time), an entirely different song came out. I realized almost straight away that what was coming out -- was not what I was looking for. However, I figured if this (other) song was there -- it apparently needed to come out -- so I rode it out to completion, then set it aside. A couple days later, I started on this one -- and then it started happening just fine! This song was basically completed over 2 days of writing. The original 1st verse was not used in this finished version (as I did not feel it worked with the overall song).

This song was recorded in my home studio and is comprised of one acoustic guitar (that I recorded in one take), that was recorded on 3 separate tracks at the same time (one direct from my Ovation acoustic/electric guitar), a second with a Shure SM-91 and a 3rd with my SE 2200e. My vocal was then recorded separately, as was my friend Charlie's harmony vocal. Then I mixed them on my Mac using Garageband.

Since I had this finished recording -- I thought to put it here and accompany it with a couple photos. Perhaps interesting -- is the lyric sheet I show in the video here. This was an early draft of the song. There were a few parts where in working it thru some more (before recording), I penciled in some new lyric ideas -- that I ended up using in the final recording here. So, even though I basically thought it might be 'done' and 'ready to go' -- this is an example of some last minute changes I made when I was ready to record. 

Looking at these photographs of memories past
All the years we spent together
The time's gone so fast
So many friendships, so many smiles
And every time I hear your laughter
My heart just smiles

You're amazing!
And you're just being you
I wouldn't change this time we've had for anything
You're amazing!

I tried hard to teach you things -- or maybe -- you taught me
But somehow together we are
The best that we can be
But I've got to hand it to you -- credit goes your way
You help make me what I am
And what I am today

You're amazing!
You're just being you
I wouldn't change this time we've had for anything
You're amazing!

These years are passing us by
And we change so fast
Hang on to the love and the friendship
You know will last

You're amazing!
You're just being you
Wouldn't change this time we've had for nothing new

You're amazing!
You're just being you
Wouldn't change this time we've had for anything
You're amazing!
