Description
A Change from my usual stuff which I admit can be a bit depressing so hears an up beat end of the summer kinda song. With thought of friendship and just for once thinking about someone else for a change.

It kinda fits in with the recent great show of support and frienship shown to get Ego bandit back on line what a great advertisement for the calibre of the people on this site. Anyway thats where my head was when I wrote it. Hope you enjoy. All the Best PB

Lyrics
Sun is Shining, Feelin Fine.
Friends around me , Good Bottle of wine.
Life is good friend, Sky is Blue
How about you.


Sound of laughter, Fills the air.
Pull up a seat freind, Iv'e got time to share.
Life is good friend, Sky is Blue
How about you.

While were travlin on this life of ours
Just take the time to stop and smell the flowers.
Sometimes you got to stop.
And change your point of view.
Thats How I keep Smiling
How about you?


Some really bad whistling and a hum and a few la de das

very mellow
I really liked the feel of this piece. The whistling was real nice. I almost would've liked another vocal verse after the whistling, I wanted it to last longer.

Cheers!

How About You
I love this. So intimate sounding. Great finger picking. There's an "I'll Follow the Sun" vibe in the bridge. Love the vocal. The bongos are a nice touch.

Doohickey
Yep after we got over the initial problems and I used a subtle amout of percussion management on it. The Doohickey started to behave it'self and now knows I am It's Master.

However It laughs a my authority when I try more advance stuff so I just stand in the corner brooding like a one star mcDonalds worker.

Ps I wasn't whistling I had the window open and that was the sound it made as it blew through my ears.

Bummer
English Summer if you go brown it due to rust not he sun. I've been there buddy. I've been to the hell that is Camping in the rain. I find a simple method of getting absolutely plastered on a good Brandy takes the edge off.
Glad you liked the tune

Nail on the head
Keep it simple thats me. If I try complicated it never works. I get tormented with what it sounds like in my head then it goes through many high tech filters. Next stage always goes into a temporary "That'll do stage. Quickly followed by a bollocks I can't be arsed throw it out and well see how many people will ignore it.

Fortunately several people including your good self have stopped by, had a listen and left a kind comment. and for that I thank you and All joking aside it's appreciated.

Er Thanks I think
Don't know how to take that one. As in I liked the musical composition of how the la de das an whistling played around the melody at the end of the piece. This in turn made me smile. Or I was glad when it had finished As you liked the end. Either or Glad you popped in and had a listen and good to see your back on line and operational.

Happy, happy, happy!
I hope "sweet" is not an insult but this is sweet. A delightful, summery tune.
I have a little blues number (not posted) with some whistling but my lips seem to have lost their tuning at times, too ;-) Cheers, and thanks for the pick-me-up.

I like all kinds of music but I'm predominantly a Blues freak contemporary or traditional although I am a cursed ballad writer and have to record them to get them out of my head. I welcome advice and critisism as I feel thats the way to improve. T... [see more]
