Lyrics
What ever you say you know that I'll hear
What ever your mood I know that it's real
I don't know how and I can't explain
I long to be near and that's how I feel
I'm not just your best friend...,

Where ever you gaze it's all that I see
When ever you hurt you know that I bleed
I don't know how and without a doubt
One things for certain
I'll say it out loud 'cause I want you to know
I'm not just your best friend...,

When ever your late you know that I'll wait
If you're not around I know you'll be sound
I don't know how it happens that way
I long to be near and that's how I feel
I'm not just your best friend...,

It's been a while
So we took our dogs to the beach this summer. Old PD had a blast and can still catch that frisbee. I forgot how much she loves the beach. Thanks for dropping by and taking a listen.

Very nice! Lovely tune! I love the smooth groove and pumping bass! Excellent guitar sounds. That clean strat rhythm just pops beautifully! Super production and mix!

I've been having issues
Laying down a decent acoustic track so I've been relying heavy on the strat for rhythm. I'm glad you liked the choice of amp combinations. Thanks for always lending me your ear.

This is just a nice feelin' tune. Nice clean strat rhythm and sweet dirty lead tone. Very melodic ... I like the progression. Good mix.

Nice tune - reminds me of John Mayer's style, in the smooth execution and mellow lyric lines. Nicely played, and not overplayed. Interesting variation of the chord structure for the solo. Enjoyed this - thanks!

I'll take it!
The progression on the lead was actually the chorus initially and the chorus was initially the lead progression... go figure. I would automatically go to the progression I used for the lead after the break so it accidentally happened that way. I thought it would make for a fitting change and the melody envisioned seemed to fit the part. Thanks for your observation and those kind words.

I'm Not Just Your Best Friend
I like the parallel structure in the lyric (What ever, Where ever, When ever) It is a great vehicle for putting across the song's message. The mellow groove and tasty guitar work add to the vibe. Nice changes, especially in the back half of the verses where the melody takes full advantage.

I agree... it's easy to write lyrics when you can repeat... sometimes it's strategic to put them at the front of several phrases instead of repeating them in a chorus. I appreciate you pointing this out and your kind words.

Beautiful John...
Now, my dog CAN sing (as well as play the piano), but I'd much, much, MUCH rather listen to fine music like this. You've written and performed a very fine song here; I liked it very much--thank you!

you raise them from when their young and they become part of the family. I know a lot of people who depend on their animals as partners. Thanks for your kindness.

hey john.....you sing so well. really confident delivery and i love the little pause you throw in before resolving the end of the line. the regular, well-trodden chord progression can be an obvious and bland place to go, but you manage to make this one fresh and new, even though it's an old friend you're bumping into. the mix is deafeningly clear and precise. the whole piece is expertly turned out. sing more!

I want to hear...
...the straightforward acoustic version of this tune, John... Heck, acoustic guitars, bass, bit of drums, maybe some mandolin or something...

I think the song's got something going on...
FEEL said 2089 days ago (August 8th, 2011)
Thanks Ed
I was actually thinking of trying my daughters voice out on this. I don't know if she's ready to tackle vocals yet but I'm curious to know. Acoustic would definitely work, maybe I should drop by Guitar Center and buy some new strings. You know how dangerous that is. I'm glad you came by and listened.

Non-ironicly sweet.
Everything's woven very nicely here, down to the parallel poetry of the verses. No irony, no excuses, just a nice tune from... well, um, a nice guy.

I'm a self taught guitar player who started playing at the age of 13. I mix my guitar progressions together, add lyrics and from that point I'll search for vocal melodies. The music I write is about life experiences and some about random subject mat... [see more]
