Come Up For Air

Hello...I am back once again for the latest installment of Dave's World as I slowly slog (and by slog I really do mean with the greatest and profoundest joy : ) my way towards a new album.  My 5th song is called Come Up For Air.  Here is a little background about how it all came to be.

I created a song called "Come Up for Air" back in 2006 on a four track recorder. Yes, this is how amateurs did it back in the stone ages.  My initial intent was to duplicate the older song with my newer recording hardware and my ever improving music production "smarts".  However, as I got into the recording process I began to take a wide departure from that songs original rhythmic and lyrical identity.   There are hints of the original but it sounds very different. Here is a link to the latest 2016 version of "Come Up For Air".  Enjoy.

I have taken a deep breath and decided to share my vintage 2006 four track version of "Come Up For Air " so you can compare and contrast. For those of you who aspire to create and record your own music this should give you great hope.  Keep at it.  You learn through the mistakes, the practice and the resolve to get better.  It is with humble gratitude to you that I present this new song.  May this inspire you to take your next creative leap.

Thanks for dropping by.

Dave

    Digging the groove on this one. I both enjoy your tracks and use them for inspiration on my own endeavors. This one would pair well with Get Up (Even As They're Cashing In). Unfortunately, I couldn't get the old version to play.

    I did get the old version to play and it is interesting to hear the striking difference, not only in production value, but song style and feel.
