CG   That was a very, very nice song!!!     

Nice song Neo - sounds good.
I had not heard that song , although I have heard Dylan's and Neil Young's songs of the same title.

Thanks for sharing it.

It looks and sounds pretty good in the video ( the player looks real good!:)  )
a lot of the reviews on different sites are not so good on the tonewood amp.
Most said the batteries wear out fast.
It sells from 200 to 290 dollars -
probably pretty cool for beach player or busker (although several of the reviews said it wasn't loud enough for busking)
I'd like to have one if I was a serious musician I think

Thanks for sharing

I would just like to say that some people are busy and have to step away sometimes, some have some issues to deal with, some go on vacation, some have tech issues and can't get on.some just need a break.
I have experienced all of these at some point. I am not sure about what Zurf wrote about over moderation, as I have not had any issues personally with that.
I have seen an outpouring of compassion and care to members when needed - which is awesome.


Chordie is a really great site in my humble opinion.  Thank you to all of the people here - I really appreciate you !

your welcome Phill and Thank you!     

Thanks Russell

Looking forward to some new performance from you

Jim     

Russell

Good luck with the guitar, I hope all goes well for you.

I was wondering since you are an accomplished guitarist with a lot of experience..... what are the major differences between a Gibson and an Epiphone  Les Paul model ?
Also wondering what's the difference between Guitar Center and Sweetwater - they always seem to have the same prices ?
Thanks

Thanks Jets and TF
I appreciate the honesty - it truly helps someone like me that struggles with the music part ( that sounds strange seeing that this a musical forum named Chordie! smile )
I went back and changed the chords and a few lyrics  ( as you can see above.)
I went to a different progression and modified it to fit.

It's easier to play and sing.

Thanks again for your help this version really works for me.
Jim

Russell

Good companies keep good customers!

You are light years ahead of me musically, I hope to hear our production son.

Woke up this morning -  and had this idea in my head about  when people meet the crossroad - and have to decide whether or not to fall in love again.

Lost Lover’s Lullaby by  Jim Kenyon


[G]there’s a part of her [D]heart that’s off [Am] limits


oh [G]someone, somewhere [D]broke it in her [C]past


[G] hard to offer her [D]innocence [Am]again


as [C]somehow the love and [D]pain both seem to [G]last




.


Chorus


But she [C]smiles when she hears that tender love song [G] play


just an [C]old tune that reminds her of better [G]days


makes her [C]wonder if she’ll give love another [G] try


Well you [D]know it’s just a [C]lost lover’s lulla[G]by


yeah you [D]know it’s just a [C]lost lover’s lulla[G]by




.


[G]Alone and confused, it's [D] hard to find her [Am]way


she[G] still doesn’t under[D]stand what went [C]wrong


[G]All she wanted was [D] someone that she could [Am]trust


but [C]now she hides her heart and [D] tries to be[G] strong




.


Chorus (2x)



But she [C]smiles when she hears that tenderlove song [G] play


just an [C]old tune that reminds her of better [G]days


makes her [C]wonder if she’ll give love another [G] try


Well you [D]know it’s just a [C]lost lover’s lulla[G]by


yeah you [D]know it’s just a [C]lost lover’s lulla[G]by

Brick and Mortar BEAMER and TIGLJK


Brick & Mortar




Verse 1




[G]Brick and mortar, oh they build those walls,


[Em]they block a heart whenever love calls


[C]Diamonds are forever but they can’t pay the toll.


[D]as iron forged from earth, wraps around my soul.




Verse 1




[G]Oh Brick and Mortar they can’t block the pain.


[Em]from the heartacheof being alone again


[C]Memories won’t let me practice what I preach


[D]They leave me searching for what’s out of reach




.


Chorus




[C] so take my hand and walk with me


[G] open up your soul and set it free


[C] smash these walls that keep us apart


[D]open your eyes, n’ feel with your heart



[C]end the pain that our hearts feel


[G]that only time and truth reveal


[C]find a way to smile from inside.



[D] tear downs the walls that[C] make us [G]cry


   


(Repeat second verse)




[G]Oh Brick and Mortar they can’t block the pain.


[Em]from the heartache of being alone again


[C]Memories won’t let me practice what I preach


[D]They leave me searching for what’s out of reach




Chorus




[C] so take my hand and walk with me


[G] open up your soul and set it free


[C] smash these walls that keep us apart


[D]open your eyes, n’ feel with your heart



[C]end the pain that our hearts feel


[G]that only time and truth can heal


[C]find a way to smile from inside.


[D] tear downs the walls that[C] make us [G]cry




outgo ( a little slower)




yeah, tear downs the walls that [C]make us [G]cry


yeah, tear downs the walls that [C]make us [G]cry

$290  new - it better be good. The you tube demo I watched on it  was amazing.

If I could sing - I'd get one!  smile
You Dad did you  right my friend!!  Enjoy

Beamer
I agree with Phill and CG - great little poem. It contains a lot of imagery and self-reflection.
I think a great title would come from the line " Maybe Tomorrow",
If done in your genre, it would suit it like  a metal amalgam perfectly!
This poem is like a seeing glass into your mind set. Hope you get out of the floccinaucinihilipilification
[flok-suh-naw-suh-nahy-hil-uh-pil-uh-fi-key-shuhn] funk soon as you have so much to offer.
I was thinking yesterday that you should get one of those blank journal books and put one of your songs / poems-  one each - on a page - then when you get to the last page and fill it - close the book and move on - just a way of setting a goal and maybe finding a path to healing.
