Hi all. This is an attempt at some older style country.
I actually wrote it for my wife.
A brumby is a wild Australian horse and a yellow belly is a fish.

My hand is in plaster at the moment so Im struggling a bit to write.
All comments welcome. I added some synths.

[Link no longer valid]


You can teach a weeping willow not to cry away at swoon.
You can Stop a summer shower on a humid afternoon.

You'll convince the desert flowers not to give off their perfume.
But you can never stop me loving you.

Loving you Loving you Loving you.

You can tame the wildest brumby and take from your hand.
You can walk a thousand miles on the burning desert sand.

You can catch a yellow belly from the muddy old Barcoo.
But you can never stop me loving you.

Loving you Loving you Loving you

Bridge

You can teach a weeping willow not to cry away at swoon.
You can Stop a summer shower on a humid afternoon.

You'll convince the desert flowers not to give off their perfume.
But you can never stop me loving you.

Very exotic touch...

Really nice and it expresses a great sentiment. Would make a good Valentine Day song for any lady!

Sorry to hear about the hand but, regardless, you wrote and produced a fine tune.

Like Jim mentioned...those are cool changes.

Well done!!!

Rob,
A very nice tune. Unusual chorus chords, but sounds fresh and
goes with the rest very well. Vocals are great. Remind me of singers from Golden age of POP.
Since you welcome comments... If it was my tune, I would replace synth that starts at 1:25 to more realistic strings. For some reason it stands out in a strange way. I have a lot of weirdness in my own tunes, so I am not authority here :), but your tunes are well baked, so just speaking my mind.

I really enjoyed this. Thank you!

Misha.

Hi Rob, I'm really liking the older country style. What kind of music do you normally write?

Hope the hand doesn't take too long to heal. From the outside listening in, doesn't seem like it slowed you down too much. smile

Really well don, Rob smile Loving the throwback classic country style here. It flows nicely, and is nice and gentle on the ears. Some pleasant chord progressions here too. You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!

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.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
