Hi, friends !

I have been away for a couple of days and
when I return the archive of songlinks has
grown exponentially (lol) !:)) ....and now I am about
to add to that.....(another lol) !!

This tune is a jazztune born out of the cold
winter weather over here. It just got me
in a winter state of mind !:))

http://app.box.com/s/2klg02b02i6u4ymi4yvr

I am indebted to Dean Clark who graciously
plays the intermediate guitarsolo (thanks Dean) !

Style: SJAZZBL STY Smooth Jazz Ballad (65 RS)
Instruments in style:
908 Electric Bass
910 Electric Piano
Drums: Realdrums Smooth Jazz Ballad Sn Ride
Soloist: 5 Electric Piano

And here are the lyrics:

WINTER STATE OF MIND (by Dani)

Bluer than blue, I sit alone here without you
looking out of my window, still
snow keeps piling up out on the sill
thinking of you, my love
and how you fare up on the clouds above
thinking thoughts of another kind
I´m in a winter state of ………
I´m in a winter state of mind
I´m in a winter state of mind


Outside it is cold, far below zero c I´m told
I will stay inside my room and hide
all in vain from all the pain
No cure in sight, but let us hope it goes allright
thinking thoughts of another kind
I´m in a winter state of ………
I´m in a winter state of mind
I´m in a winter state of mind

solo

Bluer than blue, I sit alone here without you
looking out of my window, still
snow keeps piling up out on the sill
thinking of you, my love
and how you fare up on the clouds above
thinking thoughts of another kind
I´m in a winter state of ………
I´m in a winter state of mind
I´m in a winter state of mind

Cheers
Dani

Dani, good song. I think this is one of your best. Great mix and I love the vocal. When you hit those low notes I feel it all the way down to my toes!

Hi Dani,

very interesting chord progression
and very well sung.
I can't help: for me the guitar solo
is totally out of tune. On purpose?

Thank you Trevor for your
most kind words ! You are right,
writing, or rather playing around
with chords trying to construct
something rational has really
helped me back on track again !:))

Hi Dani...

This is a great tune! So soft and mellow. It reminds me of something Mel Torme might have written and recorded. All the instruments are so mellow and laid back. And your voice is perfect for this ... exceptionally good! We're still smiling a while after we listened. Very, very nice! Thanks for a super nice listen.

Al & Di

We forgot to acknowledge Dean. We're so sorry for that. Both of you deserve the accolades. Dean, we appreciate the hard work and talent you put into this, too! This is a great song!

Guenter you rascal !!!

You just had to notice my electric 12-string out of tune. Well, there's a perfectly sound explanation for that:

.....''''''''.....'.................................It IS out of tune!!

because the strings (2 x 0.08 to 2 X ?) are shot and the last time I tried to re-string it myself I wound up cutting my fingers to ribbons with the ends of the strings.

Maybe I can talk Dani into reposting after I freshen the thing up?

However, thanks for the instructive comment - the Forum can always use more of these, because in the end they lead to improvement.

Dean
