Lyrics
pictures of you
under a tree
infinity
came calling for me
a face in the rain
burned on my brain
bad novocain for a final refrain
a photograph crumpled under my shoe
tore through a hole in my fillet of soul
a face in the rain
fell off the frame
the gutter runs red
with the color of shame

and in the end when it all fades away
pictures of you
will still remain
pictures of you

another good one Buck!
You got a touch of Lennon in you. I don't know how long you worked on that guitar tone, but it's near perfection.

I thought my guitar was
a piece of junk till I discovered that a famous singer song writer uses the exact same one. I put on some fatter strings which are kind of hard to play but improve the tone quite a bit. And one of the tracks I did the steel drum/guitar trick
(you thread a piece of paper between the strings at the saddle to make it sound staccato) Thanks for the comment. Regards

To be honest
I wasn't thinking Lennon but I'd be a fool (on a hill) not to relish such a comparison. I wasn't able to get drum loops to work properly so I just added some perc via the midi keyboard, soon I'll buy some real bongos. Thanks for the visit. Cheers

i like the sound!
on a side note on the guitar sound...remember the hermans hermits tune...mrs brown you have a lovely daughter....they did the same thing with sticking some paper up the neck and getting that plunky sound...i used to use it too when we played live...aahhh great memory! thanks for the track buckhorn!

Hey Mark
I like that paper trick. I find that when there are too many big rich tones in a track, the mix is bound to get muddy(my trade mark sound) especially if one has the lack of arraigning skills that I have. Thanks for the words.

Thanks T-dub
smooth as fifty grit.... I was little reluctant to post this cuz I thought it was a tad self indulgent, but glad to hear a few other are indulged as well. Regards

great visuals
Absolutely perfect little nugget. I said something similar on "purplecaddillac" (sp?), but it's even more appropriate here: you're a singularly visual lyricist. Great tune

Thanks BSS
One of my favorite lyric guys is Tom Waits. Some of his tunes are basically a list of many differnt objects with very few verbs or pronouns but those objects tell there own story. Glad you Noticed. Thanks for stoppin by.

Tumbleweed Poetry
Man, I am so impressed with your lyrics. The way this evolves is very imaginative and clever. "...bad novocain for a final refrain" is a good example of your fantastic songwriting skills! Your voice and guitar sounds crisp and they really sit perfect in the mix. If you think you can play bongos, you should try. Drums are my biggest challenge. You seem to like those little sticks or blocks. It simultaneously feels nostalgic and comedic to me. I'm quite fond of those sounds too, but I prefer the vibraslap.

Thanks for another download!

virtual wood blocks
I feel like I've been vibraslapped. Thanks for the comment on the words, I've been trying to improve in that department.
Cheers

Vibraslapped
I was saying that my biggest challenge is with drums on MY songs, not this one! Sorry Matt. You're one of my favorite songwriters. I like your drums!

Vibraslapped by Life
I wasn't feeling slighted by you, Bob, but by life in general.I was just trying to be clever. Hec,your one of my best friends here. After being at MJ for 30 odd months its takes a lot to hurt my feelings. And the comments that do
bug me are probably the most constructive. No offense taken at all and constructive crit always welcome.

Beatles
I don't know whether it is the super simple drums ala Ringo or the chord progression ala Lennon that reminds me so much of the fab 4, but not a shabby comparison nevertheless. Especially the bridge and the return. "A photograph crumpled under my shoe" what an excellent line. Really great tone on the acoustic, I'll have to try that paper weaving trick.--PV

Thanks Phillip Van
I used to think Ringo, kind of sucked because he didn't go off and hit the skins a million times like, Kieth Moon. But lately I've been thinking he's a really great drummer, simple and bold as a drummer ought to be. John Bonham was simalar in that respect. Thanks for the comment. Regards

wow
you know you're on to something when people start throwing around John Lennon's name. I also hear a lot of Beck from the Mutations album in this. Either way you slice it, it's a great tune!

Thanks for
all your kind words Eric (Thats my middle name) I was kind of going for a Tom waits "Alice" vibe ,with less flem. But Im tickled to be compared to any known artist. Thanks for stoppin by. Cheers

bravo
i'm a bit late getting to the songs of yours i missed previously...
this is great!
Like you, I'm not that fond of coming up with verbal descriptions of what the music did, but I'll just say that I enjoyed listening all the way through!
