63 Back Home on the Road     M?rz 2014

Verse 1
I was a stranger
far away from home
I have seen in many faces
and I ran that many races
I live alongside the road

chorus
Don?t know what is wrong with me
don?t know why I always wanne be free
don?t know how many homes I?ve  had
I?m back home on the road
I?m back home on the road
I?m back home on the road

Verse 2
I dream from freedom
dream of a better world
I dream my dreams alone
far away the wind has blown
into the blue blue sky

chorus
Don?t know what is wrong with me

Verse 3
I don?t know if I ever reach the end
glistering far away in the sky
I hope it?s not that high
may I ever touch the sky
may I ever be free may ever find me

chorus
Don?t know what is wrong with me
don?t know why I always wanne be free
don?t know how many homes I?ve  had
I?m back home on the road
I?m back home on the road
Lalalalalalalala
Lalalalalalalala

Right my friend,l


You have so much talent you know - I love the vocals , I love the open chords , I love the lyrics - your delivery makes everything seem so important - like we all have deadlines and frequent midnight meetings - I love this song man

Please please mix up your strumming a little - especially when the  songs are so bare - get some dynamics into your playing

Top class though  :D

One of my favs  :)

Thank you Andrew for the rave review and also for the hint with my strumming. ;D ;D Have to work on it but it?s not easy because the strumming is also a part of my style if so I have one. ;D
You made my day

Beautiful introduction and use of chords Alexander.  I can't stress how important it is to explore different rhythms.  I love the way you use unexpected chords in your songwriting which give an extra lift to your songwriting.

It's great to is write so many songs so quickly but might I suggest that exploring your potential as a producer is a progression worth  exploring as a songwriter.  It can bring hours of enjoyment (and frustration) but it really gives you something extra as an entertainer.

As always, a very enjoyable listen!  Explore the world of production - you won't regret your investment of time.

Paul

Paul I will try to do more work on a songs production but it?s always when I ?m recording a song there are two or three new ones in the pipeline. ??? So I feel stressed and try to become to an end with the oldest song.
Thank you.

ah, what a beautiful voice!!!!

i think a simple long note string line coming in would be nice

a pleasure, perhaps one day you can give me the pleasure again to try to add some things, i hope have been learning some things how to approach songs like this (well, i hope)

When ever you want dutch but I thought I first have to learn to play to a BTM. ;D ;D On the other hand what is with your project where you announced a way to handle a song without BTM. ??? Anyway thank you for your words.

yes, i think i have learned working on songs without a fixed BPM via this kitchen, by first messing up a song from you  ;D ;D ;D
to begin with...
then messing up another song from you  ;D ;D ;D sorry, but there it started to dawn, then i pretty much messed up a song from Siennalittle, but the idea how that could be done grew  ;D, and then with a song from MOSP i started to apply this, semi messed it up nevertheless  ;D ;D

but i think, it showed the principle works, well to me it did  ;D ;D ;D ;D, so i will revisit that mix and try to get it right

and i even think i know how to do it, i am not going to give away the secret formula just like that ;D ;D ;D ;D

but i am saying that i know...how to get a non fixed BPM song fixed to a BPM in reaper and add all things i want tightly, everything, and then after i am finished.......by pressing some knobs release the song back to its original tempo changes.......so back to what the initial singer songwriter did tempowise, including what i added to follow the initial songwriter.....


well, i know  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D that is...... ;D ;D ;D ;D quite something...

i think it is.....to be honest  8) 8) 8) 8) yes, i am somewhat serious

so, if you would be prepared to test that, or anyone else who is prepared to deliver the guinea pig song for this, please let me konw

i thought this song would be very ok for it, from my perspective, but i can also understand if you say: Please don't!

I agree with what others have said about the quality of your songwriting - it's amazing. You have a unique sound so I wouldn't worry too much about changing your strumming - you don't want to end up sounding like everyone else. It wouldn't do any harm to add some simple strings if you have the tools to do that. If you don't, I can be of assistance ;D

Lovely song as ever, I never get bored with your songs, singing or playing.

really doesn't get any better in terms of purity, being inviolate, minimalistic, etc., than nothing more than a lone guitar and vocal & a great Bob Dylan-esque anthem being revealed.

this is something i would just love to walk into a pub somewhere and hear sung as is?. the purity and emotional devotion to every word in song.


i'm hearing a bit of Peter Paul & Mary vibe with melody and delivery-- great signing; doesn't get much better as I said. ace job. digging the guitar's TONE too it seems you worked to dial it in sweetly around your voice
