1967 - Summer of Love
on: May 16, 2020, 19:37:47

 :praise: ::e-guitar::

This is one of my 'rock  roll years' songs - probably the hardest to do, copying the style of arguably the most original & unique guitarist ever... (plenty of hidden references for anyone old enough to remember those times :-)

Tennessee drops the monkey law.  Jimi quits the Monkee’s tour
Ed says no, ‘you can't sing higher’.  Tell me the secret , light my fire
Getting high in Itchycoo Park. Dr Christian, ‘have a heart’
Rolling Stone hit the street. Who blew the band offa’ their feet

Sergeant Pepper said ‘all you need is love’
Arnold Lane just wants somebody to love
Are you experienced? bold as love
You're trying to seduce me               in the summer of love

Rocket science, up in flames. Radio silence on the waves
Zero hour, cut the cable. Swedish drivers turn the tables
Greek tragedy, marshal law. Middle East, 6 day war
Evil Kneivel, colour tv. We all come out like it's Halloween


Go to work on 50 eggs. Two and three for twenty of fags
Trouble in Newark, Durham, Cambridge, Detroit, Milwaukee ‘n Memphis
QE2, Gypsy Moth 4. One armed man don't run no more
Monona, Conniston, Stockport town. Torrey Canyon runs aground

DeGaulle says ‘non’; hanging like a puppet on a string
Devalued pound, let it fall, from a the hole in the wall
Tamalpais, California then get together in Monterrey
Brown eyed girl, meet me there. Wear a flower in your hair

Yes, I can understand why it’s not easy to step into the shoes of people you consider heroes.
And guess what, they’re not heroes for nothing.

At the same time that’s the fun part too. Trying to figure out what made them tick is the motor behind your own development.

More often than not topic starters leave us guessing what they want to do next with the song they post. And assuming you want to take the next step and soon too, I think I can offer a bit of help.

If you want that, please send/sent me a PM saying so and I will answer that with what I can offer you. And no, of course I’m not after you bum or money.

If you happen to be like me, simply childishly happy with writing now and then? OK, I won’t bother you again.
Because I can hear the outline of a good, happy song.
You’re the captain on your own ship. It’s up to you to decide what you’d love best.
Kind regards, Gus
