Here is a song I wrote ten years ago, Going to Sedona:

https://52tracksblog.com/2016/08/18/track-33-going-to-sedona/

All RTs: Bass Guitar, Electric Guitars, Piano, Mandolin, String Quartet, and Drums. It is the first time I have used a string quartet and found that it works well with this arrangment.

Thanks for listening.

Enjoyed that, Fred.

The mix is good and everything works. Good "believable" band - nice Americana sound.

Nice sound on that one - good choice of instruments (like the changes) - nice catchy chorus.

The name dragged me in.... had to listen.

Good country rock tune.


Several years back, our family took a vacation out to the Red Rock country. Easily one of the best and most interesting vacations we had. Lovely scenery and so many interesting places to visit. We stayed in a little place just off the main street in Sedona. It was a wonderful time.

Thanks, Herb. I wrote the song before I finally got to Sedona... It is a spectacular place. A friend of ours has a vacation rental property near the main drag. She keeps offering it to us for free...We are planning to take her up on the offer.
