It’s Snow nice Tom. Lovely picture you paint and I like the way to mix up guitar parts for variation. Good one.

Beautifuk Tom. Really liking the arpeggiated guitar bit in the softer parts, huge dynamic play in this and you know I’m a sucker for big dynamics. Just about the point where I’m missing pet dog’s toe tapping rhythm, here it is! This song has it all for me, and it sounded like snow to boot – actually, you know what – it reminded me very strongly of the Peanuts Christmas special soundtrack at first. Unusual soubd from you, you wear it well my friend!!

Lovely song Tom, nice to hear a nice quiet tune that hits the spot, you don’t have to bust your lungs apart for people to hear you.

Nice one Tom, nicely sung & performance

Curious one this, I really like the verse and chorus structures independently, but I think you could transition between the two parts more fluidly. The tune’s quite short so I think there’s room to do that without impacting on what is essentially a really nice song. Regardless, an enjoyable listen

Interesting progression and resolves challenge the listener, a terseness and complicated mix of major sevenths, diminished and inversions. It had a lot of uplift in the chorus, to me just the chorus could be the whole song in a way. Original and new, well done.

Magical!

Yip it’s another good one, and like the change, but the timing is out between the two and it jars. That said, I really liked this lyrically and melodically. Simply, you write great songs. 🙂

I like the structural and melodic components in this one. I sense infancy in the delivery but its an enjoyable listen with some depth in composition !!

Great dynamics change to the strumming. Love your choice of chords and melodies. Lovely lyrics too. A love song with mystery to it.

So Who is Listening?

January 27, 2020

Q. But aren’t there people out there that love the generic mainstream pop?A. No! No one is lapping it up. No one here, no one anywhere. The Big 3 Labels, parent companies own the media and talk shows that review and promote their bad music. They make it sound like this music is popular. But all sales are way down, and last year was the first to match the high year of sales, 1999! Virtually everyone I’ve ever talked to is like you reading this, and has to block out corporate and search out good music. That should tell you it’s a marketing scheme, not the will of anyone anywhere . No one seems to know this, and so they really think there is some weird people out there that love this junk and hate good music. No

The Joni Mitchell Quote

April 6, 2019

Dear Reader,

This Joni Mitchell quote was sent to me by JHC. Mitchell is right and its worse than she thought because ‘they’ are only 3 CEOs, the Big 3 – google it for more.
That’s why the music revolution from Dallas against these 3, and for all the other musicians in the world.

Joni Mitchell:

“I heard someone from the music business saying they are no longer looking for talent, they want people with a certain look and a willingness to cooperate. I thought, that’s interesting, because I believe a total unwillingness to cooperate is what is necessary to be an artist – not for perverse reasons, but to protect your vision. The considerations of a corporation, especially now, have nothing to do with art or music. That’s why I spend my time now painting.”
