After a longish break to re-form my band I've managed to get back to some song writing!

This one is called 'Wasted Years' and deals with how relationships can sometimes become difficult when two people have come such a long way together but each has a different dream of what should come next.

I used some tracks from one of Drums On Demand's 'My Co-Writer' libraries plus some Band In A Box tracks:

Style: C2_ANDY - Ev.8 Country ballad at 74bpm.
Pedal Steel solo: 1667 Soloist CountryPaul Ev

All vocals and lead guitar fills/solo by your truly.

YouTube video here. (Play in 1080HD if possible!)
Lyrics and Tech Notes here.

Nice blend of RealTracks and your playing. Pro sounding engineering and mix. Thanks for the post.

Hi, John !

Pro work all through !:)
A friend of mine just said
to me these words : "I was wrong" !
referring to his broken marriage !
Maybe we all should try and see
things more from our partner´s
viewpoint ? (just wondering having
been in a 42 year long marriage ending with the
death of my dearest wife) ?

Cheers
Dani

Hi John,

It's great to have you back in the forum smile I've missed your music! You're my role model when it comes to production involving midi mixed with Realtracks and live playing. I take my hat of to you, your sense of production is incredibly well developed. Really nice work!

All the best,
Noel

You know I am a fan of your work. This one does not disappoint! Excellent production as always, and the vocals are top shelf as well. Great work!

Thanks friends, I really appreciate the kind comments!

Danny C, here's a link to my new band playing 'Valerie'. I'm on the far left. I'm afraid we didn't get the lighting positioned properly so it's a bit dark!

A song full of Truths!
Great lyrics. If Only folks would look at both sides more often.
"If Only". Great title for a song. Howe about it?
Excellent production values all round.
cheers
Ian

Sounding great! I tried to post a "Like" on your Facebook page but could not. I am thinking because my FB page is also a business page. Anyway just wanted to let you know I was there.

Hey John,

It's all been said... and I agree! grin

I thought your guitar work was great, very tasty on the solo!

Greg

P.S. I also think the live sound for your band is OUTSTANDING!
