Nicely done Brian, a good all-round performance.  As I said on SoundCloud, it gets a thumbs up from me smile

That song has come out good Brian.     

Re: NOVEMBER 2022 FSOTM – ANYTHING TO DO WITH WATER

Here is my short contribution for this month song as my arthritic fingers struggle to move when I play guitar nowadays. Just poorly recorded on my cellphone but hopefully it entertains.

Nice one Brian. Pedr, short and sweet.     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

good to see you still at it.
I have to break some bad news to you though.
that stuff you drink isnt water,water is clear,not brown with a creamy head.

That's hysterical - great observation.

Thank you Piri, after a week of trying to write lyrics about water and a war vet with PTSD those few lyrics were all I could come up with. Then when I turned on the phone camera and picked up the guitar my mind went blank again and I struggled to remember what little I had written. So, I thought something is better than nothing, so I went with it over dubbing the extra vocal recorded on my phone.

For my soul.

If you know what I mean.

I drank all sorts of things.

I’ve had my fair share of stings.

But I tell ya  tell ya that water water.

Is the thing for me.

I had also written these lyrics to go with it but they didn't sing well

I left the military ten years ago.

A messed-up head and medals to show.

The bad war memories come back when I try to sleep.

My midnight screaming got me thrown out on the street.

In amongst all the civvies and their brightness.

All I see is my doom and gloom.

I swapped my family for the bottle.

Cheers  Brian,

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder. Did you know if you say beer can with an English accent, it comes out as bacon in a Jamaican accent. Go on, try it. Maybe I could write a reggae song titled “No Beer Can I Cry.”

Pete
i know you may find this hard to believe,but i have a drinking problem.
you know i like a beer or two,but my problem is drinking too much water, yes true!
i take some meds everyday to stop me drinking too much.
its very rare condition, only a few people in NZ have it,and they are mostly my relations.
if i didnt take the meds i would be going to the toilet hourly,which can get pretty tricky,depending where you are.
thank goodness for shrubbery,it has saved me many a time.

EB, your genetic condition most probably helped fertilize and water a few shrubs until you were diagnosed and got the right meds. My grandad at nighttime use to under the cover of darkness use his bladder to fertilize and water his Lemon trees claiming it was good for them.  My Nan was never sold on Grandpas gardening technique.     

RIP, Boiled Water you will be mist.

Re: NOVEMBER 2022 FSOTM – ANYTHING TO DO WITH WATER

Well here is a second entry for me...
hope to record it sometime this month smile
feel free to have a go at it if you want.
of course, it's very simple and basic musically, but the lyrics are pretty meaningful .
I think it probably needs a "just music" solo spot where the chords or something changes, but I am not that talented musically to figure that out.
I think Phill once told me to use a bridge - still haven't mastered that idea yet though smile  !
I wrote it after my wife gave me a great good morning kiss and long hug yesterday- left me feeling pretty darn good smile

Walking On Water by Jim Kenyon


Verse 1


[D] when you smile at me, the [C] rest of the world doesn’t [G] matter


And each [D] time you kiss me, I [C] hope it lasts a little [G] longer


Every[D]thing I think, every[C]thing we do,makes our love [G] stronger


I tell ya’ [D] you always makes me [C]feellike I can walk on [G]water


Yeah [D] you always make me [C] feel like I can walk on [G]water


.




Chorus


.


And I [D] feel like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


‘cause of [D] all of the [C]things that you [G]do


oh I [D] feel like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


every [D] time I’m a[C]lone with [G]you


can’t help [D] feeling like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


oh, baby, I[D] think that [C] you feel it [G]too



.




Verse 2


[D] when I hear your voice, it [C] brings a smile to [G]my face


And each [D] time we hold hands [C] my heart begins [G]to race


There [D] ain’t nothing in this world [C]that ever can take [G] your place



just sayin' [D] you always make me [C] feel like I can walk on [G]water


Yeah [D] you always make me [C] feel like I can walk on [G]water


.




Chorus


.


And I [D] feel like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


‘cause of [D]all of the [C]things that you [G]do


oh I [D] feel like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


every [D] time I’m a[C]lone with [G]you


can’t help [D] feeling like I’m [C]walking on [G]water,


oh, baby, I[D] think that [C] you feel it [G]too


.




outgo- the  last line plays slow


.


yeah I [D]feel like I’ll be [C]walking on [G]water,


praying [D] it’ll be, my [C]whole life [G]through


yeah I [D]feel like I’ll be [C]walking on [G]water,


and you [D]know it’s all [C] because of [G]you

Re: NOVEMBER 2022 FSOTM – ANYTHING TO DO WITH WATER

Here's one that fits I call What It's All About - I wrote it a while ago - mid 2020 - but it fits the theme for this month.
https://soundcloud.com/jets60/what-its-all-about-1
I'm also including the video from when I first wrote it back in July 2020.

What It's All About By Jeff Gilpin


~


[G]I can [F]never for[C]give myself.


I’ve [G]looked at what [F]I’ll never [C]find.


Like the [G]seat of my [F]pants in this [Bb]old wooden rocker,


I [G]wait to catch [F]up with my [C]mind.


~


[C]Warm [F]winds [G]blow.


[C]Hands [F]moving [G]slow.


[C]Eyes [F]looking [Em]seaward.


[C]Where my [F]time seems to [G]flow.


~


It [G]passes a [F]grain at a [C]time


Like the [G]sand in an [F]hour [C]glass


[G]Ticking the [F]seconds I’ll [Bb]never get back.


Re[G]flected [F]memories a[C]mass.


~



The [C]Waves [F]lap the [G]shore.


The [C]coast [F]washes away [G]more.


The [C]ocean [F]spray is [Em]on my face,


A sen[C]sation [F]I can’t ig[G]nore.


~


It’s [G]gray and it’s [F]green and it’s [C]blue.


It’s [G]frothy [F]white at [C]times.


[G]Rises and [F]falls like [Bb]broken down walls


For[G]gotten [F]memories re[C]wind.


~


[C]Breathe [F]in and [G]out.


[C]Whispered [F]thoughts [G]shout.


[C]Trying to [F]catch but un[Em]able.


[C]What’s it [F]all a[G]bout.

Peatle, I was memorized watching you pick away at the guitar, I always notice guitar players and how they play, guess because I am not very good on the guitar.  You plucked away at it like an expert.  Anyway, a short song but to the point.  Great to see you entering smile  PS:  I am not the best at drinking water, drink too much tea and coffee

TIGLJK, what another great song, I don't know how you manage to keep them coming but you do.  Second entry to boot, awesome.  I like the lyrics on this, great stuff.  Will you be recording it?

Jets60, nicely performed and written, well done.  Your another one on here that song writing seems to just flow out of you.  Enjoyed it.  I could listen on Soundcloud but your other link,  studio, you tube,  didn't work, open for me, so could view it.

Thanks, Jan and Sorry about that - you can hear it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPy_iuxuVLY

The other link, that I originally posted, is just where only I can edit. Again, so sorry. This video is from the night I initially wrote in a songwriting contest a couple of years ago, where I had to write 5 songs in 5 days with different writing directions each day. Anyway, I normally post recordings but here you can actually see me performing this one for a change.

"live by the edge of the sea" ...

Will have a listen to the others soon - just found out my new work computer doesn't have speakers ... !!!

Re: NOVEMBER 2022 FSOTM – ANYTHING TO DO WITH WATER

Here`s my very quick attempt tonight to cover a song for the month.   Finding it a bit difficult to record anything let alone play/sing anything at the moment as we are renovating and the room I play in and record in is fill of furniture.  A bit of a mission to set up the recording gear.  Very rusty as haven't been playing or singing much lately.

Thanks, Brian - I was trying to figure out how to use my phone to record it at the time. Next video I promise playing and singing will be visible.
