Tar Bones

Hi Friends, 

This song is called Tar Bones. 

I never know how a song will materialize.  The song structure and feel often start out of the thin roots and foggy mists of drum, chord patterns or hints of melodies in my head.   I play around with ideas. I often have some fresh musical inspiration from the latest music I am listening too.  However, I find there is often never a direct line to the reference song(s).  What emerges is usually a surprise and wholly different than what I was expecting.  This is what makes the song creation process fun for me.   A song forms from many little tangled webs of  failed attempts and do overs .   All these pieces form into a success if you finish the project.  It is never perfect.  Perfect would be boring anyway. 

Like any good song it is the vocals that must stand out front and center.  They must be lifted by the music.  I hope I was successful in doing this.  Enjoy the music and please let me know what you think.  It wouldn’t be quite as fun to create without knowing that there are kind, listening ears out there enjoying it.  

What is the song about?  Not sure.  Perhaps its about the final few moments of a soldier’s life. …..perhaps not.  

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Now Go Create Something! Just Do It!  

Dave

    I am feeling Bowie & Gabriel, figuratively of course, but am also reminded of another David... Yazbek. Not sure if I ever played you any of his stuff. Now I must go forth and create!

    googled Yazbek and noted the following: "Yazbek has produced tracks for the band XTC, and its lead singer Andy Partridge has collaborated on Yazbek's solo albums. He also has written for or produced recordings by Spacehog, Tito Puente, The Persuasions, Queen, and Sarah Saturday. XTC also contributed a track to the "Carmen Sandiego" soundtrack album, which Yazbek produced."..............but I guess you new this already : )............... thx for the comments and yes.......keep going.....make some music!....
