Wrote this with Scott Whitehead.
Scott was half of the duo "Hometown News".
They had a couple of releases and charted a couple of singles before their record company went the way of so many others...


THIS OLD HEART


this old heart is a little bit used
it's been around the block a time or two
but it's not ready to be sold for parts
there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

i've made mistakes and i've seen my share
of broken promises and bad affairs
but that won't stop me trying to hit the mark
there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

    take a chance, you'd be surprised
    at all that you might find
    there are nooks and crannies that have never been touched
    deep in this heart of mine
    it might be rusted, but it ain't busted
    might miss a beat or two at the start
    but there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

it runs pretty strong and it never gives up
it wants to belong to one true love
keeps telling me forever is not too far
there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

    take a chance, you'd be surprised
    at all that you might find
    there are nooks and crannies that have never been touched
    deep in this heart of mine
    it might be rusted, but it ain't busted
    might miss a beat or two at the start
    but there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

this old heart is a little bit used
it's been around the block a time or two
but it's not ready to be sold for parts
there's still a lot of loving left in this old heart

Hi Floyd. This is a solid write and excellent production. You're able to always get it right. I enjoyed the two videos of Hometown News. Been on the Enterprise in Charleston several times.

Regards,

Charlie

Very nice country rock song and we especially like the harmonies.

Hi Floyd. Enjoyed that. Liked the old car and thought the vocal and mix were superb. And the country guitar. Cheers.

Hi Floyd.

You've got a really good groove going here!

The backing's really punchy and snappy and the guitar riff is spot on. Nice country lyric and your usual superb vocal delivery. Production and mix is well up to your traditional high standard.

Wasn't sure whether to count this in 2/4 or 4/4, or a mixture of the two, but either way the bar count in places was unusual, though always in a nice way.

Are you still working on that rock ballad, or have I missed it whilst I've been away?

ROG.

I just love the chord progression, the melody and your phrasing here.


And the lyrics are tight, not a wasted word to be found.

Great song!

What is the chord progression?

Hi Floyd,

as Greg said: Great combination of fun and depth!!
The backing is perfect.
And your vocals and harmonies are top notch as always.
The second video is not available in Germany.
But I enjoyed the first.

floyd, That's a really tight write. No fat there. I love the recurring guitar lick. Nice job editing that in there. This has a catchy groove that grabs you from the very start. Once again a great vocal. The lack of reverb makes the mix crisp and in your face, perfect for the song. Please tell your wife I said you are such a perfectionist you must be hell to live with. Great job all around. Love the sound of that popping tele. Tom

ROG - Thanks! It's 4/4..there are a couple of spots where I have 2 beat measures - a feel thing - since Lawrence asked about the chord progression, I will add a link to the SGU for anyone interested (have to go find it).
Re: that rock ballad... give me a couple of examples of what you are thinking - and I'll see what I can do...

Great song!

What is the chord progression?


Lawrence - Appreciate all that!.. let's see if we can figure out how to get this in here....

-- the C at 12, 24, 52 are 2 beat measures
-- I generally play this in a G, but dropped it to F 'cause someone was complaining about getting old... the SGU is at the bottom - so it can be transposed...




Here is the SGU if anyone would like to try it out...
THIS OLD HEART SGU

That is a zip file of the SGU - which should prompt you to save it somewhere...

Thanks, Guenter... Germany seems to control such things more tightly than the rest of the world. Not sure why that would be blocked, though...

Tom - always glad to catch your ear. So very glad you noticed the recurring guitar lick (of course, ROG caught it, too). That was, in fact, my main intent with this when I started - to find a "signature lick" from what BIAB presented and exploit it throughout the song... someone had been bemoaning the fact that you did not get such things using BIAB - and I wanted to show that wasn't true...

That popping tele works so well for these type songs - surprised that people don't use it more...

My wife would likely say... "Perfectionist??? OMG!! He's a slob!!!"

I must definitely agree with the snapping Tele. It grabbed my attention instantly.

May I share it with Graham Wilson in hopes of getting you some airplay on Sounds Of Scotland? He's several months behind in auditioning submissions but at least you'll be in the queue.

Great work, as usual, Floyd. Thanks for sharing.
