Ok, I've been building a while but never really took the time to write a song or music for it. Just wondering where to start and if anyone can guide me along the way. I don't expect anything less…Continue

Anybody working on songs together? I know there are ways to do this I just haven't tried but I'm sure I could get my head around it. Got a computer, got a loop pedal etc.Continue

Thanks Uncle John.

Sean, we definitely could set a tune to this next meeting and work out on other material as well. I'm hoping to have a recording to work it over on http://www.kompoz.com/music/home

Blues worth dying for

I died and was buried at the graveyard

People walking on my grave

People came to the funeral

People who didn’t know my name

 

I couldn’t stand it

Laying there all alone

Nothing to show my passing

Except the head of an old tombstone

 

So I dug my way up

Started walking all around

Checking out the action

In this old worn out town

 

People shouldn’t cry

Over my final resting place

Instead look into the mirror

At the sorrow on your face

 

How do I feel

Walking out among the living

I’m feeling cold

Cause death is just the beginning......to be continued!

Note:Slow Beat- Blues  with change ups.

From Blues Came Happiness

 

I couldn’t find my self

While living

In a dream

 

I couldn’t find myself

In a mirror

Staring back at me

 

I couldn’t find myself

You know just what I mean

 

 

Not in a bottle

Not in a Bar

 

 

Believe me

I’ve search here

From afar

 

 

It didn’t matter

Till the world

Come caving in

 

 

Then I met you baby

Where my life

Started to begin

 

I found a woman

Turned me

Back into a man

 

Now the memories

Fad away

As fast as they began

WHO IS GOD TO ME

CHORUS:
Am I afraid?
Do I need saved?
I hope to find the answer,

2. I pray to him,
in my time of trouble.
My hope grows,
every time.
Things seem to turn out
