Description
This song is about a simi pro musician who is sort of taking advantage of his girlfriends devotion.He likes to play on the road in more ways than one,but his conscience is starting to bother him.

I played the guitars and bass and my friend Woody helped co-write the lyrics and layed down the vocals.....Hope you enjoy.

Lyrics
She's miles away but ever day I feel he touching me.
It's so hard when I'm gone...
The party starts when I get back home.
I miss her so but she dont know,,,
I dont spend these night alone.
The blouse goes up ,the dress comes down
God knows I'm heaven bound.

A sure thing...I'm sure tonight
A sure thing ..I'd bet my life

I called her up just yesterday,,,there's nothing new to say.
Reach out and touch only in a dream,It's real or so it seems.
But I wake up and feel so blue,,,my love what can I do.
Love and spice and all thats's nice,engagment rings and wedding rice.

A sure thing...I'm sure tonight
A sure thing ..I'd bet my life.....Oh yea.

We started new,,made up our minds ,,Forget the past and leave it all behind
Made our plans no more goodbys,,,Forgive me love I didn't mean to lie.
You're the best I've ever had,,your naughty ways make a man go mad.
No -H- or booze for me,,,Ear-rings and gothic sleves...

A sure thing...I'm sure tonight
A sure thing ..I'd bet my life.....

Oh yeah!! this rocks. This was fun to listen to. Good catchy rockin' tune ... enjoyed your guitar playing! Reminds me a little of Bad Company. Pretty cool playing in the middle when you do your lead ... you get pretty walky on that bass. Good vocal delivery. Rock on!!!

Glad you like it,,,I found that drum beat on my RP-250 FX pedal.I loved it the first time I heard it and actually wrote this song around it.My cousin Tony(the drummer)wants to bring his double kick over and try it live.

Tasty groove here. (For me) has kinda Kravitz feel to it-which I love. Awesome guitar and bass work I'm hearing. Your friend Woody's lyrical contribution is a definitely plus! Enjoyed it on this hot summer day :) Thanks for sharing-patty

Seriously good riffage...
Hi J. Some seriously good riffage and tone going on here. The drum loop is awesome as well. Woody has a great voice for this style of music. Now this type of heavy rock I can get into... Great effort, both of you. Take care, Peter.

funny, how everyone hears exactly who they want in this ha
me, i hear sammy hagar all over it. lot's of fun. could benefit from some real drumming i think - more crash. bass and guitar are great. lead could come up in the mix - it gets a bit lost under the rhythm. cool stuff, i'd enjoy hearing more like this.

Like I was telling Russ,we both are huge Montrose fans,and I think Woody even saw Sammy live with EVH.

You are right about live drums.My cousin is going to bring his double bass pedal over and we are going to give it a shot.I thought about dubbing in some crashes and tom rolls using MIDI but want to try a live session first.

About the mix...I'm still learning from all you guys around here,,,I really do appreciate the feedback and comments.

I love the hard driving guitars. The bass and drums are tight. The mood fits well to the lyrics. Vocals are spot on and I'm amazed how good they fit this style. Thanks for sharing.

I don't know why, but I was expecting such a rocker tune. Love the groove and the guitar tone. It sounds like it wants to squeal, but you're keeping it right on the edge. The solo is pretty hot, to say the least. Great energy. The vocals sound like early Sammy Hagar (a good thing). I really enjoyed this. Thanks for posting.

Rocking tune! Excellent in all aspects. Specially love the singing. Cool riffs. The groove of the drumming sounds a little bit mechanical to me, but it's just a question of taste and really looking hard to find something that could be better.
A classic.

I know exactly what you mean about the Drums.I love the double kick and off beat of this loop,but it does need live drums.Hopefully in the future that's going to happen.We really do appreciate your input.
