This page is for links to all my original acoustic tracks on youtube, the page is under construction, the videos are using the recorded audio tracks from my album “Sad song in major keys” coupled with the lyric to each song.
The inspiration for the first track was that I have come to notice that, at funerals, folks always say good things about the departed, but never say those things whilst they are living. It also features the storyline of the age-old content passed down from parents to children that is aimed to ease the pain of losing someone. The star gazer was of course ME.(and my wife)
From a blind date to a soul-mate
This song is about Angie and me….. we started off with a failed blind date caused by the embarrassment of being surrounded by others.
Bad news and Rainy days
This song sadly was inspired by the fact that every time I received bad news with regard to a friend’s fight against cancer, it was always raining.
Ten Guitars later
How could I forget
This is a song about the fear of those conditions that lead to memory loss. I got the idea when I performed at a venue that looked after people with these conditions, I sat beside a young man with one of the conditions, he remembered the lyrics to the songs I performed but didn’t recognise his wife of 30 years that sat the other side of him.
