Acoustic demo with only guess timing (how bad?)

I don’t even have a mic stand here. ha ha I held the mic in my right hand. I couldn’t strum, so i did a power grab with the acoustic to get the bed down. I kept the mic on my lips to try to isolate. You will here the dry mouth clicks. After I got done then I watched the patterns come up and tried to guess strum. One regular acoustic on one side and one capo’d on the other. One bass track. four tracks total. It is a mess, but might be redeemable?

That’s my life that’s my story

I’m…. so tired …Yeah, I’m so very tired ……I’m so tired……of me G C……G
Same ….ole look…same blah face I see in the mirror
I’m… so tired… of me

That’s my life that’s my story… ho hum boring ordinary G C
I’ve been down on me and feelin blue F C G
That’s my life that’s my story… ho hum boring ordinary G C
It’s got to change…. I think it could with you

I …can see…that yur not really in…tris…tid…. It’s not… the way it’s sposed to be G C
I …can see …my life isn’t goin nowhere I’m …so so tired… of me

But could it be that possibly…I still have a chance Bridge Em Am D
A secret little rendezvous… with you a midnight dance

That’s my life that’s my story… ho hum boring ordinary G C
I’ve been down on me and feelin blue F C G
That’s my life that’s my story… ho hum boring ordinary G C
It’s got to change…. I think it could with you

Wow, cool Paul. I think it is great as is. It may be a mess, but it’s a perfectly good mess! I love the way the rhythms ebb and flow - it’s real, it’s human, that’s what you do best.

Man this hits me here. The funny thing is that everything that you talked about that makes it messy also just works for this song. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the listen Andy. I could refine it more by isolating each track I guess, but I will be moving on. Glad you thought it felt “human” ha ha best to you and yours

Glad it smucked you Eric. I listen to my six grandkids and thru the teens, there are many moments of low self esteem. It started with my grandaughter Jenna say “I don’t like me much”. Messy tracks are good once in awhile. Thanks for listening
