Description
a few people may have seen a rough video demo of this song i shot on facebook a little while back. here is a more developed version. i actually have another version of this in the works where the guitars don't sound like guitars at all. Maybe that will get posted down the line or maybe not.

Lyrics
To Tomorrow

days no longer linger on
time escapes when you look beyond
time has left you blind

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow

words and pictures from day one
those memories really can hang on
sad those days are gone

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow

in the pursuit if happiness
sad time fade to emptiness
they can stay that way

well you think that life is sorrow
and you look to tomorrow
tomorrow

Thanks JD
now and then it's good to do a different approach. it's a good thing i put on new strings before giving the acoustic a work out here. :-)

Vicar!
Gorgeous opening guitar... melancholy... but with a tinge of hope...

Oh man... This is truly top-drawer bro. Almost a tear-jerker too... Lovely Beatle-esque tuneage. Surely among your finest.

Be well bro!

i think this song shows how versatile one guitar can be. save up, they aren't cheap. but they are worth it.

simple is the key word. dialing in the eq on the rhythm guitars took a bit of doing. airy was what i was going for so i'm glad it worked

Fitting that you should post a John Lennonesque song on his birthday. Orchestra of acoustics, I dig.

I love the sound you're getting on the acoustics. Picking up a Beatles vibe on this one. Well sung and excellent production

Vic Holman said 2450 days ago (October 9th, 2010)
Thanks Dave
acoustics i plug straight in and just fiddle with eq, compression and some reverb until a decent balance comes out. they take up a good amount of sonic space so some of the acoustics might need a high pass filter to shape the overall sound up........ that's how i do it.

Love the 60's vibe. More Kinks than Beatles IMO. Very well produced and mixed.

tf10music said 2450 days ago (October 9th, 2010)
love
the nice, warm tone you've coaxed out of the guitars, it gives the song a ton of body. Vocals remind me of McCartney, and so do the lyrics, for that matter. Well done!

it takes some practice to mix several acoustics together to get a good overall sound going.

Love the 12 string!
This has a Roger McGuin feel to it. Very nice! Last cover band I was in had a guy who regularly played 12 string. Really adds class to this mix! Great piece!
Vic Holman said 2449 days ago (October 10th, 2010)
thanks loob
actually no 12 strings on this. i did double track some of the guitars to get the 12 string sound though.

i checked out your latest post, a excellent song!

You sure are hard to keep up with Vic
don't you sleep? As usual, a terrific production of some great performances on a good song. Very Beatles-y (mainly Lennon I guess) sound. An enjoyable change of pace from you.
Another winner!

Vic, this is really solid. A minimalist approach was a wise decision, I love the simplicity of this. This has a great "60's british feel". Excellent post!

Beautiful Vic
really exceptional. Folks have mentioned Lennon - but I always hear a bit of Ray Davies in your work - which is high praise in my book. Such a well structured and performed song - wonderful.

VIC HOLMAN!
Oh boy, did I miss those tunes! It's great to hear your work again, Mr. Holman.

I especially want to thank you for making it an 'acoustic' piece that I started with... I bet you've posted about 7 songs while I was away. Well, gotta get back to your page later this evening!

i don't do very many all acoustic songs, this one is pretty simple since i wanted the vocal melody to be the focus.
