Hi Everyone.

It's been a while since I posted a song, so here's a bit of light-hearted nonsense and our first post with a video. The drums, banjo and sax are RTs and the rest is me. It's all recorded in RealBand and mixed and mastered in PowerTracks.
Video editing is done in Serif Movie Plus.

PLAY GUITAR - GET RICH

Sometimes it kind of seems
Like I'm living my life in some sort of dream
I gotta wake up
I'm knocking on the door but there's no one there
I'd like to kick it right in but I'm never gonna dare
I gotta shape up
Won't some one hear my plea
I'm down on the ground on my bended knee
I need some dough and I need it fast
I've got a little bit of money but it's never gonna last.

I'll buy a guitar and then learn to play
I've seen this book called "Play in a Day"
It won't take long
Got this idea about starting a band
Gonna play Rock & Roll, do one night stands
And write a hit song
Write a big hit, how hard can it be
Play it all day on the MTV
Pay me lots of money and make me a star
Buy a big house and drive a fast car
And buy a saxophone

You've gotta have a plan you've got to work it out
You don't get a second chance it's what it's all about
You gotta take it
Never even start to look at second best
Just pick up number one, forget about the rest
You've got to make it
Everybody knows it's just a dream
It's never gonna work it's a stupid scheme
I don't care what people say
Pick up my guitar and begin to play
Something like this.

Many thanks to anyone who has time to listen.

ROG.

there have been some really top notch songs posted to the user showcase in the past few weeks, but for sheer "WHOAH! THAT WAS FUN!" impact, I don't think any of them came close to this!!

I loved every aspect of it... I even laughed out loud when the sax player started lying on his back... exactly what you'd expect from the imaginary person singing the song.

Right from the beginning it reminded me of Tom Petty's "INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN"

How did you make that video??? That was AWESOME!! I liked it so much I want to make that exact same video and apply to a different song!

And apart from the clever video, the song itself really ROCKED! I tapped my foot from start to finish! (but the video really did add a lot)

Final summary, this project reinforced what I already suspected: "Rog.. you ain't right!" LOL! (just the way we like ya!)
You are a very creative and intelligent man,and it shows in everything you do. Thanks for posting!

Signed,

"A Rebel Without A Clue"

Cool, fun song!! A little Dylan/Petty mixture with a "money for nothin' and chicks for free" sentiment. And, the video put it over the top!! Loved the guitar solo too!! I miss the days of the guitar heroes. Only John Mayer plays solos these days. Great stuff Rog!! Take care. Greg

Music is up the same high standard but you upped the bar with the video, that must have taken time as I have tried to do similar, but different, and gave up!!

good stuff

Hi ROG
That is simply awesome! Do you have to practice that Bob Dylan voice? What a great idea for the video. I love it love it!

Howdy Rog,

Pat said it all from our perspective. We are HUGE Petty fans and, man, this one is in that wheelhouse. We're not implying imitation at all....just the Petty Vibe, if you will.

The productions sounds nailed on our monitors. Everything sits where, IMO, it needs to me. Just a great listen from all angles -- production, arrangement, instrumentation, RT use, vocals and lyric. BTW, some folks' results may vary but we really liked the banjo.

Kudos!!

J&B

Rog,

That was wonderful, and of course very creative.

Still on the floor with the line "buy a saxophone" to introduce the sax solo.

As our friend Russ would say . . . good on you man!

Later

ROG,

You know I've always been a big fan of your singing voice...Great to hear it again! This one goes straight to the top of the list.

How did you do the opening cymbal? Nice touch!

Great mix. Everything sounds good - and right in the slot. Nice bass!
Those far-off ooohs are nicely done. The sax solo is about the best I've heard in a rock song (What RT was that???). Terrific guitar solo. It sings!

Good use of the banjo.

Good write (yes, the saxophone line made me laugh every time I played this). Cool video.

Awesome. Delightful. A standing O.

Yeah..... what they said ^^^^^

Cool song and video too.

It has a Dire Straits Money for nothing vibe to me.... in places.... in the phrasing of the lead on the intro especially

sweet tone on the guitar.

I have a buddy who played guitar in a band we were in back in the day.... he came home one day with a sax.... he stuck with it, through all the hours upon hours of practice and can play that thing pretty nicely now.

Loved the rolling banjo in the background of a rock and roll song. cool move.
