Happy Veterans Day - 11/11/15 04:28 AM

Dear Forum Friends,
I'd like to take a moment to say thanks to all the veterans and everyone who supports them. Your service to your country is appreciated and respected.
Here's a older tune I wrote for all the Patriots out there.

Hi Space Dog,

As you know, I'm writing this from my hospital bed. So if there are any typos, I'm gonna blame it on that! Also, my replies will be brief.

Great song! That staccotto (sp?) piano was perfect to symbolize the marching of soldiers in formation. Your attention to that small detail is what makes the song appropriate and effective in a big way. Nicely done!

Alan,
Thanks. The staccato piano was part of the music from the first time played the song. Backing it up with the snare drum came later.
Best wishes and get well soon!

Tommy
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. I generally don't like to repeat posting a song but I just wanted to say thanks to the vets and their families.

Floyd,
Thanks for listening.

Rob and Anne-Marie,
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Kudos on such a well written song - I don't think patriotic songs are easy to write. And that piano part with those drums really added to it. Much enjoyed!

Glad you liked it.

Josie
Thanks. I've heard that patriot songs an Christmas songs are hard to write. I guess that's it's too easy to write cliche's
OBTW, I'm just starting a new Christmas song.

Alyn
Thanks.
Sonny.
Thanks. I always try to honor our vets and their families.

Dani,
Thanks.

J&B
I appreciate your kind comments.

Guenter,
Thanks. I'm trying to keep my musical separate from my professional net-presence. But you can call me Mike.
