Dear Forum Friends,
I’ve been listening to your songs over the last few months but haven’t had enough time to join the dialog. Sorry. You all are making some great music! I’m humbled by your skills and creativity.
I recently got a few songs back from the copyright office and I’ve posted them to my SoundClick page http://www.soundclick.com/dcspacedog.
The first song I’d like to share with you is called “Dream Away.”
http://www.soundclick.com/player/single_player.cfm?songid=12421060&q=hi&newref=1
I originally wrote the melody when I was a teenager back the 70s but the lyrics were never that good. My Wife and I rewrote the lyrics this past winter and I recorded it with a simple accompaniment. It’s intended to be a folk-style lullaby easy to fingerpick on guitar. I used to play folk guitar back then.
On this recording, I’m playing the piano and strings (based on the BB generated strings) but the main instrument is the RT 365 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 085. I just used BB and RB for the recording and mixing. The vocal effect is a simple doubling of the lead vocal track.
Style is =PIANO_F.STY (Ctry Piano Bal, fpk.guit (85 RT))
I hope you like it. I’ll post the next in a week or so.
SD

SpaceDog,

I think your song totally works as a lullabye. I can easily imagine singing this song to my grandbabies (if I had any) as they drifted off to sleep.

Certain pop-type songs come and go without ever becoming part of the fabric of our lives. But other songs (like happy birthday, lullabyes etc) are so much a part of our patterns that they have a much longer shelf life than other songs. I'm glad you formally applied for copyrights to this song. Its the kind of song which, if someone famous recorded it, could catch on.

Do you plan to market these songs?

Very sweet lullabye SD. Soothing pretty arrangement and I especially liked the positive message. I could enjoy going to sleep listening to that myself.

BTW, welcome back. smile

Pat,
You are too kind. I'm glad you liked it.
The copyright process is so easy and cheap, it seems like the right thing to do. I don't market the songs. I barely find time to write and record them. No one downloads them from Soundclick so I figure it would be a waste of time and money to pitch them.

If any one wants the leadsheet I'll send it to them.
Thanks
SD

Hi Space Dog,

I smiled when I saw that you'd posted a new song smile It's good to have you visit the forum again!

I agree with everything that's been said. This song is a credit to you. Very enjoyable and relaxing listening.

MarioD,
You're so kind. I'm gald you liked it.
I wouldn't mind more people hearing my songs, but no one even downloads them off the website. I can't imagine enough people would buy them to make it worthwhile. Besides, with so many scams out there, I'd probably get burned. In fact, ever time I receive my copyright certs I get a scam from "record company" wanting to "help" me record and market the songs.
Anyway, Thanks for listening.
SD

SD, isn’t HillTop Records a PITA.

We always get a “sign with us and you will be a star” letter from them on every copyright! We copyrighted a Christian song and they sent us a letter stating that for $500 we will evaluate your song to see if it will fit in our latest Christian album. I wrote back that the song has been uploaded here so I’ll save my money and you can go and listen to it and see if it fits. I have serious doubts about them.
