After seeing Dave live on his videos, I asked him if we could do something together. He mentioned an old song and I then I asked if he would help on a new song I was starting to put together. I had recorded a couple of acoustic tracks, and put one hard right and the other left. My playing was a little clumsy and just lacked dynamics. He did an acoustic track. I put it hard right in the session and deleted mine. I didn’t have to do one thing to it. How nice was that. It was awesome. Anyhow, I explained that the song is very dark, but he didn’t seem to mind.
I have decided to write songs from here on about things that I care about and not so much about what might be a song that everybody might like. This is about a brave lady who survived the concentration camps. Yes I know very dark. I think of it often though. I wish I knew someone who could sing her part.
Any comments on content or mix would be appreciated.
Big thanks To Dave for his patience. He actually had to email me the acoustic track. ha ha
