Quarantine
on: November 17, 2020, 20:35:14
Hey all,

Here is the first song Ill share with you.  I was one of the first in my area to catch the Covid, and I wrote this song on day 7 of my 14 day quarantine back in the beginning of March.  It was one of those songs that just came together so quickly and easily.  Almost like I was just a conduit for a muse and I was an observer of the process as opposed to a participant. 

I dont have it properly recorded yet though. This is just me and my acoustic.  I was in the middle of Covis so my voice isnt at it best but Im sure that doesnt matter too much. 

Look forward to hearing your thoughts!



Lyrics:

7 days ago now, with a sniffle I awoke
Another stupid cold, man
This has to be a joke
I didnt even feel that bad but that silly doctor shrieked
Quarantine for you, sir, and its gonna last 2 weeks

Quarantine, quarantine
Chronic boredom washed over me
Quarantine, quarantine
Me, myself, and I guess thats the way its gotta be

Its been 7 days now between me and the world
7 some odd days now and my toes began to curl
My friends come by and drop me groceries from the store
But my porch is like a ghost town when I open up the door

Chorus

Coming up on 14 days and time is moving slow
Minutes feel like hours and still nowhere to go
At least I have my guitar, man, she never lets me down
But that mean ol' bastard writer's block just had to come to town

Chorus

I never thought Iíd stoop so low that I would be listening to someone elseís misfortune while grinning, but yes, I admit that thatís exactly whatís happening.
It has a huge amount of self mocking and I like that a lot.
If we donít laugh at ourselves, somebody else will.

I even has a large Feel like Iím fixing to die vibe. A truly revolutionary way to deal with serious problems. Maybe your quarantine will prove to be as anthemic.
Love it to bits @Knate
Kind regards, Gus

What a great song @Knate , I think it sums up so well the strange world we live in.

Very nice, clever lyrics, confident guitar chops and rhythmically it rolls along nicely. As Dutch said no issues with your voice.

A small video thing to think about re camera angle, the punters like to see 'the whites of your eyes' , if they think you are singing directly to them , they often connect more with the music.

Good Job ... more please
