#Hot100
Here is a song I wrote in for the Top 100 challenge. This is the inspiration I felt after reviewing the present songs on the Top 100 billboard chart. https://soundcloud.com/countryjammer/the-hundred

The song is title is " The Hundred "
I used band in the box 2018 style (Hankps1.med country sw8)
539 bass, electric, Pop sw 120
528 Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking hank sw
real drums-Nashville swing 8
327 Guitar, Acoustic strumming Hank sw
320 Pedal steel, background Hank
Mixed bb , vocals and variax thru Line 6 Spider Jam amp.
Bear in mind I am a songwriter...not a vocalist.

" The Hundred "
(Chorus:)I was lookin' for inspiration..driftin' through the chart
Hopin' to find a song that that could speak to my heart
Somethin' I could lean on, come up with a number one
But out of today's top one hundred, I couldn't make one my own

Today's country song's don't hang like they used to
The old ones played ten years and still sounded brand new
Like a lit cigarette on a rough and windy day
Fired up for a minute, then they all burn away
(Chorus:)
and so on and such and such...... Dan #Top100

Dan,

That's some good ol' Country music. You have a good voice for this style (I would turn it up just a bit).

Great country tune. The vocals are a bit far back in the mix. Otherwise spot on.Rob

Hi Dan, Welcome to the showcase! Clever song. The vocal was so low I could barely hear it. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Really nice work on this one smile I'd personally turn up the vocals a touch - but aside from that, everything is on point smile Your vocal tone is perfectly suited for this type of music. It comes across as very natural. Some interesting lyrics to boot!

Nice job - can't wait to hear more from you. Thanks for sharing smile

For some reason I can't access the song. It says it's not longer available? Is it just me? Eager to hear it!

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.
