I've been closing out multiple business websites and telling them they need to find another web person, because I can't keep doing them anymore...  :(

That's strange.  I don't know what the problem might be.  I had to log into GoDaddy today for a business website and didn't have any problem.  Wish I could help, Neil, but there's nothing I can do on your account...

Huh!  Neil gave me the link to the new site, and I checked it out yesterday.  Looking good.  But went to look at it again today and can't get there.  What do you think, Neil?

If I posted all the "works in progress / half done / raw demo" tracks I have, I fear Joom would have to purchase more space because SC would cut me off....... :o

I have not posted any tracks in the ODC for awhile because some life crap has scattered me brain for close to a year, thus motivation but no concentration..... :-[

I will give yer track a listen to shortly One! 8)

Spooky Xmas tune. I never saw that one coming! I’ve been listening obsessively to pink floyd the last month and thought some elements might have come through.

It’s only got 3 chords. Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple (who’s calling me simple!😆).nd

OK, here is mine....... ;)



Lyrics were written 2 lines a day for a week, then edited to fit. The music was done in 6 hours.

Enjoy!  8)

Hmmm problem lyrics might be hard to write worse though is the music is out of my vocal range .

Not sure if I should go lower or higher but higher could get scary on string tension.

Tuning is C,A,B,F,A,C . Yeah that's scary too ! Lol  ::->

put a capo up higher on the neck.   dont change your tuning at all.


higher the capo means your vocals can come in on the lower octave ... if you know what i mean.

 I'm pretty sure I only have music this time which might sound lame without lyrics but I really have no idea. Lol

Tally hoe !!  (-!)

Ok, so I'm completely fed up listening to this one....  :P
There's a couple things I'd change if I could be in any way bothered lol
I think I've just overloaded myself on it :P

Inspired by a chance remark by a guy I work with (Who happens to live in Teulon :P )

Guitars are the Yamaha acoustic and the Blue Bastard, good old Washburn MB2 bass and the usual suspects re: pedals :P

Think I might have to buy a Hat.... not a hat....but a HAT with a capital 'H' :P :P

Too Long

I've been too long in Teulon ain't that right,
I don't think I can take it one more night.
I need to find some neon City lights,
'Cause I been too long in Teulon ain't that right.

I said bye-bye to Beausejour last night,
Got that big city in my sights.
Got to keep on moving ain't that right,
So I said bye-bye to Beausejour last night.

Gonna grab my hat and boots, pull up all my roots,
Cash my cheque and head out of the door.
Cold beer and hot wings, good songs and six strings,
Kickin' up my heels on that dancefloor.

I said so long to Steinbach don't ya know,
Ain't got too many miles to go.
My life till now has been too slow,
So I said so long to Steinbach don't ya know.

I can see those city lights right up ahead,
Just like I dreamed them in my head.
I'm gonna paint that town 'bout twenty shades of red,
I can see those city lights right up ahead.

Gonna grab my hat and boots, pull up all my roots,
Cash my cheque and head out of the door.
Cold beer and hot wings, good songs and six strings,
Kickin' up my heels on that dancefloor.

I've been too long in Teulon ain't that right,
I don't think I can take it one more night.
I need to find some neon City lights,
'Cause I been too long in Teulon ain't that right.

Song uploaded.  I may change this a bit eventually, but this is what I have so far. 

This song was written for a friend of mine married to a guy named Paddy (Ireland) and is about an abusive relationship.



Paddy’s Song (Paddy Punches Puppies)

Some days are bad
And others are badder
I sometimes wonder
What the hell’s the matter
With the people I see
Kicking on kittens
Knocking on doors
Yelling at the trash men
Pounding the floors
And knocking over old ladies
For a laugh

Paddy punches puppies
For a laugh
I really wish someone
Would kick his ass
Cause Paddy punches puppies
He punches them for a laugh

Some folks are sad
And other are sadder
I sometimes wonder
What the hell’s the matter
With these people I see
Crying for kittens
Who’ve never been born
Weeping for the trashmen
Crawling on floors
And hugging on little old ladies
For laugh

Paddy punches puppies
For a laugh, for a laugh
I really wish someone
Would kick his ass
Cause Paddy punches puppies
For a laugh

I sometimes think about you
I think about you all the time
Thinking about this crazy love of mine
I sometimes think about you
Hell, I think about you all the time
Thinking about this crazy world of mine

Some days are good
And others are gooder
I sometimes wonder
If maybe I shoulda
Just walked out the door
When Paddy showed up
This guy from before
This guy that slips love letters
Under your door
A man who pushes little old ladies,
For a laugh

Paddy punches puppies
For a laugh, for a laugh
I really wish someone
Would kick his ass
Cause Paddy punches puppies
For a laugh

I should have my song up Sunday closing time.  Just need to re-write some lyrics and re-sing a part.


I look forward to listening to the the other songs.
