Lyrics
i had a dream of a moonless tide
where the sun don't burn and the wind don't hide
flowers they bud and then bloom with a pop
dogs crow in the morning and chickens they all hop

i had a dream of a lavender sea
that was bundled in pillars that sprout from seeds
seagulls they gather to give things away
like ponies and diamonds and rainy days

but it was just my imagination
something i do in the back of my mind
it was just my imagination
something i do when i'm killing time

i had a dream we were running down the beach
you were just up ahead staying just out of reach
your hair flowed behind like a river run wild
making sound like a lullabye sung by a child

i had a dream i was standing in the light

Break through appears successful
Another fine listening adventure. The sliding chords, harmonies, chorus and then.. about 2:28.. I salute your fantastic song.

thank you zak
I'm very pleased that you like it. I did check out your tunes yesterday, I can't listen very critically on my nook speakers, but I do like your approach to music. I hope you keep posting.

I had a dream
I like the rhythm that you set up for one - has a bit more in it than usual with that drum beat. Nice harmonies in the vocal. I like the guitars a lot. The bass sound in the middle is excellent - as it is the split left-right guitar solo. It seems that writer's block has been defeated!

african kit
in the ultrabeat drummer. It has some very inspiring sounds. The bass is the trillian bass. Thanks for taking the time again to listen.

I dig a lot
I dig this one a lot. And I can tell you it is catchy. I listened once and went to have breakfast and the song was with me in my head all breakfast, and I liked it more as it played on in my head. Now I'm back to listen again in a kind of i-want-more-of-it-craving. If you ever release a dl:able version I would be very happy to be able to have it.

I Had A Dream
I dream about breaking through writer's block with a gem like this. Great hooky groove and chord changes. I love the rolling guitar licks in the instrumental section. Great guitar tone. You should post the lyrics.

glad you like it
I'm not sure why but typing all those words seems like such a chore. I'm the same way with talking on the phone, I only do it if absolutely neccesary.

I Had A Dream
great tune and great performance.
My only nit is the overall recording level seems a bit hot so it has a little distortion. The recording itself out weighs this Love the alternating right and left acoustic break with the hammer-ons.
Cheers

The cool thing...
...about your recent songs/recordings is that they have multiple hooks and multiple strengths... This has that wonderful guitar slide hook, and the vocals are terrific... The hand drum, whatever it is, sounds neat... The bass playing is solid and perfectly underpins the whole arrangement... That dual lead interlude is terrific...

thanks Ed
That drum is the african kit in ultrabeat. I'm glad you like it!

about 2007 I received the gift of a presonus firepod. That launched me back into a love of music that I hadn't realized I'd been missing. Since then I've been writing and learning the craft of recording and mixing. I am now in two acoustic groups-... [see more]
