One More Chance

Verse 3
I said just another drink
You said it can't work
Watching me come home
I feel on the brink
Leaping before life sinks

Chorus
I've let you down
Just one more chance
At this romance
Just one more chance
To turn around

Verse 1
She comes in all flavors
Days with Tanqueray
Sunsets with Cuervo
Nights with Hennessy
She gives me no favors

Verse 2
She comes in all colors
Mornings are blue
Afternoons are gold
Midnights are cold
She's not my savour

Persistence

27 March, 2017

Walk in and glance

Smile too late

Missed this chance

Will just wait

To see if  ...

 

We were meant to be

See if time will show

That we will see

That this sudden glow

Persists within us

 

Cautious looks

Careful gestures

Winks and flares

Walking in sync

To see if ...

 

We were meant to be

See if time will show

That we will see

That this sudden glow

Persists with us

Forty-Five Blues

23 March, 2017

Forty-Five Blues

Verse 1
Red hats, fairy tales
Russian dolls and scary frowns
White crowds, faces pale
Tiny hands and cheeto clown

(Chorus)

Verse 2
Hate speech, vain heart
Racist cries and wary news
Tall walls, races part
Nation splits and hatred brews

Bridge
If only they knew
There is no truth
If they had a clue
There is no truth

Verse 3
Fat cats, weak minds
Weekend golf and tweeting lies
War calls, traces hide
Wealthy stand on poor lives

Chorus
They had nothing to lose
Now they have the forty five blues
Knew he didn't have a clue
Now we've got the forty five blues

 

Singing and Strumming

07 March, 2017

After moving across the neighborhood into the mansion - literally by Tokyo standards - I am now settled and starting to focus a bit more on music. This is good since my Berklee classes resume at the beginning of next month and need to be back and rolling by that time.

Over the past couple days I have been focusing on playing guitar and singing at the same time, since that is a skill that I really would like to possess. I play guitar fairly well at this point, but have a challenge when I have to vocalize while playing. It seems my strumming hand gets all weird in some places, but see that when I sing, sometimes I can strum much better since the rhythm comes more natural. Feels odd right now but hope to get over this soon.

A Blogging Platform That Bypasses Web Proxies

06 March, 2017

Not supposed to say or do this, but I have found a blogging platform that bypasses my work web filter. I knew that if I installed WordPress, that I could only get as far as the admin login screen, but would see nothing thereafter. So here goes... going to be nice to have a place to journal my journey here and everywhere else.

Working on some blues tunes, so will post those or links to Reverbnation once complete. Think it's time to do a harmonica debut, but still not confident enough.

Ordered a PCIx card with 4 USB 3.0 ports so I can plug the Scarlett 18i20 into a separate bus and get better performance. The computer seems to have a hard time determining the correct sound system lately, and think this will most likely be the best fix and long-term solution for performance of the DAW - Studio One 3.1.
