Here are a few songs that say
things that I felt best to put into some of my song as they have meaning or messages that needed to be said
Balance Of nature
As you may have guessed
by the title, the song is about how we
should try to keep Earth in good shape. It is done
upbeat message to inspire people to try to keep Earth's fragile life
systems alive and well. This could be called the 'Tree
song of the bunch but it is something all of us need to be concious of
Nature Shows No Favorites
very clean and slow flowing tune inspired by a series of very bad
natural desasters such as the
great Asian Tsunami in 2004 and
Katrina in 2005. This tune brings up the observation that
Nature does not seem to be aware of mankind as she goes about with
natural events that may have very deep effects on mankind.
tune makes use of some very full sounding chord inversions 'floating'
on top of a rich baseline making for a rich 'studio' sounding tune.
Ride With The Sun
song about how events in life can be a source of confusion so it it best to just Ride with The Sun and take things as they come as they will pass. This song is a bit long because of it's extended jams. It was recorded in 1988 which was perhaps the height of my obsession with lead guitar so forgive my indulgence in the tune but frankly I rather like this jam and it contains many of what I would call my signature licks.
from a disillusioned soldier who is trying to come to grips with what
his part is in the war and if he is justified to take the lives of
others. Could be any war but was written in late 2005.
This tune is a bit slow so in the works I have a
'in your face' version but have not quite got round to finishing it off
yet. The lyrics are the key to this tune and will remain almost
identical in the up-tempo and 'angry sounding' remake.
