I'm re-posting my songs so I can update the links to my Soudcloud page... since all my songs have been deleted from the site I originally used. I will do this gradually so as not to overwhelm or be disrespectful of other posters. smile


Here's a progression I've had in my head for several months now, but I didn't have any lyrics. So a couple of weeks ago I come up with an idea for an "On Fire Love"... Which includes most of the clichés you could imagine. wink

This is not the feel I had in my head for this song, but after messing around with quite a few different styles... I decided this was a pretty cool way to do it. cool I mention that because someone posted recently that they couldn't get BIAB to do what they were hearing in their head and it was bothering them. I'm sure we've all had that problem... I don't think of that as a problem anymore. I just let BIAB be a tool to help me expand on what I hear in my head. grin Anyway just my .02 on that.

I've listed the RT's below, other than that it's me on the vocals and my Telecaster "Trigger" on leads & fills.

All comments welcome.

On Fire Love

©2014 Words & Music: Greg Achord


I often wonder just how do you know for sure

I’m looking for a sign

Could this be real or just another fantasy

That’s messin’ with my mind

I think it’s real cause there’s a spark I feel down deep inside

It’s smolderin’ for you

Where there’s smoke there’s fire I’m just hopin’

That you feel it too


A burnin’ arrow has pierced my heart

I got an on fire love for you

And I don’t think there’s a way to put it out

It’s stuck in deep and I just can’t keep

From letting’ you know

I tell you girl I got an on fire love for you


There’s those who say the heart just will infatuate

You gotta’ learn to read the signs

They’re all around you it’s a chemical imbalance

Of the romance kind

Some times your heart sees clearly but your mind don’t know

Is it true / Is it right

I’ve struck a match for you now just sit back

And watch our love ignite

(Chorus) (Ride) (Chorus) tag

Greg,
I enjoyed this - a good toe-tapping song and nice strong vocal.
Keep the replays coming - there are lots of listeners here who weren`t on the forum when you first posted.

Greg,

This has such a nice tempo and energy to it!
Perfectly timed vocals (and backing vocals) too.
Cool work on the telecaster!

Love the intro on this! The way the guitar fades out and is replaced by the violin is really great.

Good work! Sounds like a "real" band that's spent some time together. Cool, write, vocals and guitar picking. Loving your guitar tone also.

Nice!!!

Hey Greg!

That's a very infectious toe-tapping groove! It's fantastic. You created a really top notch sound here and it accompanies your stellar performance perfectly!

Really enjoyed it!
