Two versions of the song here, one with and one without Real tracks.The video was done about 3 years ago without RTs and I only remembered it when I re-did the song with RTs a week or so ago!! Recorded in my studio with a webcam and Serif Music plus8
It started as my best man's speech for my now dear departed mate Albert! A few pleasantries and thanks, a quick mention of how beautiful Sian (his bride) was and then ended with me saying I only speak for [song title} except I personalised it for Albert and I sat down to tumultuous applause and many insults from Albert laugh .
Sian agreed tho grin
As long as you make love

when i was a little boy
my father said to me
as he took me in his arms
and placed me on his knee
dont prevaricate remember what I say
and you wont have any trouble
until your dieing day

words will come and words will go
as thoughts just disappear
out your mouth into those ears
as you become on show
so dont prevaricate remember what I said
and you wont have any trouble
till youre dead

years they come and years they go
so fast that you loose count
it takes of bits and puts bits there
as you loose sight of your knees
but theres something really bugging me
its been running through my mind
see im damned if i can remember what my father said

i racked my brains i shook my mind
i turned it inside out
a thunder cracked as it started to rain
and it opened from above
then from inside my brain suddenly got what he meant
only speak for as long as you make love



RealTracks in song: ~1204:Bass, Acoustic, GypsyJazzBallad Sw 110
RealTracks in song: 1461:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm GypsyJazzWaltzJohn Sw 200
RealTracks in song: ~1098:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm JazzSwingFreddie Sw 190
RealTracks in song: ~374:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 190

I will find the original BIAB file and post the midi stuff later.

Enjoy

Hi, Alyn !:))


I liked your tune and your video !
You are a master of words also I see !:))
I had to use google translate for the
word prevaricate, but it fits the story
that you tell so brilliantly here !:))


Cheers
Dani

PS Yes, and I agree with your father !!!!(lol) !

Hello Alyn,

nice! This song kind of reminds us of 'good company' from Queen. They use a ukulele there, which actually would also
suit this song very fine.
The RT version definitely sounds a lot clearer than the original.

Keep up the good work,
R & AM

Alyn. What fun! It is great that you have two versions of the song and that you are giving them both to us to sample! I absolutely love the video. I am trying to do videos for all my original stuff and this definately gives me some ideas!

Good company by Queen.

Now THERE'S a compliment...thank you, I like the early Queen albums.
Both versions certainly show how good RTs are

Thanks for listening

This is the only video I have made that I felt confident enough to post. But I will have a go at another with praise coming from a video artiste such as you. (I have watched some of your videos on your website)
I look forward to seeing the ideas you borrow LOL

thank you
Alyn

Thanks a lot for your kind comment Greg.
The initial chords were reasonably simple and I had to work to get all those passing chords and can only thank BIAB for teaching me song structure, leading chordal voices and sequences

have a good day

Alyn

Hi Alyn. Great song. I really enjoyed it and quite a remarkable job on the video too. As another said earlier, very unique.

Regards,

Alyn,

Nice job on that. Good mix.

The video was fun to watch.

Pondering the logic - how your conclusion was drawn...

Enjoyed.

Hi Alyn. Very enjoyable song and video. Heaps of imagination. Had to look up prevaricate though. Cheers.
