Dear Forum Friends,
Greetings! As I mentioned previously, I completed the Berklee School of Music Songwriting course online through Coursera.org over the summer. It was a great experience and I learned a lot. As part of the course you're required to write songs and song fragments to demonstrate concepts. I wrote this song using one of the writing assignments as a start.
I always admired the selfless nature of the American patriots of the past and present and hope we always answer the "Patriot's Call"
Enjoy.

Scott, Guenter, Gruverider, Josie, Al&Di,
Thanks so much. I'm glad you liked it. I've been learning a lot from all of you. I'm glad it shows.

Al&Di,
I know a number of us are vets and military retirees. I always try to say thanks to those who served, but I hoped to recognize patriots in the broader sense in this song. Police, firemen, teachers, community volunteers and anyone who puts service to nation before self are tops in my book.

Dani, Tommy,
Thanks for listening. I glad you liked it. It took a while to figure out how to do the snare drum. Finally decided midi was the best way to go.
Cheers
