Liquid Karma live at the vineyard
on: July 23, 2020, 21:36:49
Hello.  :)

Here is a live video of us performing our song "Not Gracefully" at our local vineyard.




This song was inspired by @Dutchbeat  and @Mar T.  around the time I became a mod on the forum. All the talk of Karma points, Karma coins and the idea that I had to create and drink some kind of special drink to join the club (  .... a bloody marti  ??  ...  ::)  ... ) kind of got into my brain.  ;)
... thus the concept of "liquid karma"  :)
 
The original version is on our SoundCloud and our YouTube. This version is obviously stripped down and live. It was 90 degrees F (33 C ) out there the day we performed this.  >:D


Lyrics

Verse:
Think about the worst.
Forget about the best.
We wonder what comes first.
Is it love or happiness?

Chorus:
I can be your (a) perfect failure.
Make the worst of opportunity.
Talk about your concrete bridges.
Even they can burn. You’ll see.
Take a sip of your liquid karma.
Just save two drops for me
‘cause I’ll fall down .…. just not gracefully.

Ooh …… not gracefully.    X2

Verse:
Forget what we’ve been told.
We can’t all be the best.
And, going for the gold
Won’t bring you happiness.

Chorus:
I can be your (a) perfect failure.
Make the worst of opportunity.
Talk about your concrete bridges.
Even they can burn. You’ll see.
Take a sip of your liquid karma.
Just save two drops for me
‘cause I’ll fall down .…. just not gracefully.

Ooh …… not gracefully.    X2

Bridge:
I wish that I could dance like you.
I wish that I could move that way.
I wish I had a mind like yours.
You always know just what to say.
I’d love to entertain a crowd.
But, nobody wants me around.
So, I’ll get out there stand tall and proud. Make my voice real strong and loud.
But, I’ll fall down.

 ……just not gracefully.   

Chorus Out:
I can be your (a) perfect failure.
Make the worst of opportunity.
Talk about your concrete bridges.
Even they can burn. You’ll see.
Take a sip of your liquid karma.
Just save two drops for me

‘cause I’ll fall down .…. just not gracefully.

@Bill from November Sound   You guys sound great live. I would be there if I could drinking wine-coolers. At least they give you some shade, so they must like you.

BTW,  I tried the drum cajon at the music store and it sure didn't sound like that.

And I thought the wine in the wine yard was the liquid karma?
How much do you have to drink before you reach the OM stage?

I listened to the YouTube version too.
What a wonderful song and what a wonderful performance! It's beginning to look like preparation pays off.
Do I hear 'more more more' from the audience?
Yes, I believe I do.
Kind regards, Gus

  :) okay @LePlongeur  ..... I guess I have to admit that the title of this thread is kind of like "clickbait" 

Yes I had to edit out the thunderous applause of the audience so as not to hurt the ears of whomever listens.   ;)       ( no ... not really)

Well @Vince I would love to have you here!  :pompom: But, nobody can come to CT without a 14 day quarantine.  :nopompom: Delaware is on the list.  :(   

This is actually continuation of our original and acoustic "open mic" events. Not really "open" anymore. People are part of last year's group, they sign up ahead and bring their own microphone, I have sanitizer wipes for everything and wear a mask .... we call it a "sort of open" mic. 

Anyway, once things get better we definitely want you to come! If you can stay up for more than 7 days you could actually perform at two different original & acoustic "open mics" at two different vineyards. People here would love your music!

Yes, Will is scary on the cajon. He's been doing it for a while and he has that crazy snare technique from his drum line work. His hands are strong and fast! He's dividing beats in 5's 7's and 9's with flams doubles and polyrhythms ..... trust me ... it blows my mind.  :)

Thank you @Zedd  !  :)
That means a lot. I have great respect for your music.

Thanks @Dutchbeat . You're the man. Yes, I am admittedly the weak link in the performing group but ..... I write songs and a I carry, set up and operate all the sound equipment so they can't fire me!  ;)     
If we ever get on the Ellen show I'll have to get a real piano player/ actor to take my place.  :D

I noticed how you like your karma points in even figures.
I think melissa’s Singing earns you an even amount of karma thingies.
So with an exaggerated theatrical wave of my hand, I upped your balance.

Enjoy!
Kind regards, Gus
