Description
Been a while since my last post. Due to very little time mainly. In my time away I have been trying to get this done with a few Macjammers. I thank the guys for their patience with me as time has not been at a premium.

I wrote the song a few months ago and I'm stuck on genre, its kind of Funk/Rock I reckon. Anyway hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics
Resurrection of Life

Intro Verse : Dm Bb A Picked
I see the fire burning through the night
I see the light thats shining through the trees
I am the resurrection of life

Verse 1 : Dm Bb A Strummed
Do you ever ask the question why we are here?
Do you ever take for granted what you have?
Do you ever think about the meaning of life?

Bridge : F C Dm x2

Chorus : F C Dm
Rise up from the ground
Take a look at whats around Repeat Chorus

Verse 2 :
Do you ever wish that you could have it all again?
Do you ever go without it cos you can?
Do you ever dream about the things that you want?

Bridge
Chorus
Intro Chorus I am the resurrection of life

Acoustic Rock! That's the genre I'd put this in. First off I love the melody you've written and you deliver it with a strong vocal. Great guitar work from both talented six string slingers. That's a top notch rhythm section you have there in Chris and Freddy. I have a friend who likes to say the hammond organ is to music what bacon is to food. Everything tastes better with bacon and everything sounds better with a bit of B3. Yves delivers the flavor! Pro production and mix! I love these big collabs! They are the lifeblood of MJ.

Hey Neil - it looks (and sounds like) you are really getting this collab thing down. You've got some major talent here, and everyone plays a top shelf performance. I really like your vox on this and the song is very cool. Congrats on an excellent tune and collab!

Wow! First off guitars are superb! Drums...Mr. Loob...holy crap! Chris is always solid and stellar, I actually realize now how a bass is so essential to a song :0)! Did I say that those guitars are fricken amazing...gadzooks!! Mr. 101's organ adds a nice touch...why did that make me blush :*) Neil your vocals shine! Great tune really enjoyed this one.

The empty tomb is more significant than any thing said or unsaid about Jesus. Love the separation on the song and you gathered up some of Macjams finest.

I like the acoustic guitar tone. Vocal delivers the lyrics well. Stunning guitar from Stan. Freddy solid as ever. Chris's bass is always magnificent. The organ washes over everything and the little runs add further interest and variety. A great collab - outstanding music!
