Momma's Song


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Sung by my 2 boys, ages 8 and 12, for their mom for Mother's Day, 2013. Guitars (all live; no loops or samples) and Garagebanding (drums and bass, with much pencil tooling) by me. Lyrics by the boys and myself. Main guitar idea inspired by "lazy day" loop in GarageBand; I couldn't figure out a way to transpose that, so I decided not to use it and played something approximating it instead. I used my classical guitar (Masaki Sakurai, Model "Excellent").

Lyrics
My momma is some kind of sweet
My momma is some kind of sweet
She gives me love and food to eat
My momma is some kind of sweet
She gives me hugs and lots of toys
She makes us proud to be her boys.

My momma is so very nice
My momma is so very nice
Like apple pie with sugar and spice
My momma is so very nice
My momma loves me all day long
That’s why we wrote her her own song.

My momma is so very fine
My momma is so very fine
Her purple hair and funky style
Her beauty and her clever wiles
I think I know the reason for
Her mystic Mona Lisa smile.

I love my mom and she loves me
I love me mom and she loves me
She also loves her coffee_and tea
And choc’late fills her heart with glee
But more than that I’d have to say
My love for her grows every day.

Clark Dribbles...
... He Shoots — and he SCORES!!!

Nice going Clark. You and your boys undoubtedly scored points with the Missus/Mom on this one. Lucky you and Lucky Mom. ;)

Great to hear the family involved in the music making, Clark. A fine tribute. I'm glad the kids have picked up on the "clever wiles" :-) Thanks for the post. Regards, Peter.

As for my wife's "clever wiles," well, the kids know all about her wily ways… and we needed something that rhymed with "style!"

Blues at their best
Nothing blue about this except the rhythm. These happy Mothers Day wishes reverberated all the way down here to Miami! Brilliant!

Family fun
Some of the most refreshing music comes from a family having fun around the house. The boys probably felt special in making a non-traditional gift for Mother's Day. I'm guessing you much enjoyed this, too, Clark, as a nice break from more serious compositional matters. This resonates with joy!

Yes, fun was had by all in the making of it, mostly… The boys only had about an hour to learn it and sing it, which added a bit of pressure, but they pulled it off, and my wife was thrilled. Just left a comment for a song of yours.

Watch out !!!
Ya got some talent riding on your tail. What a great gift to give their mom, and your accompaniment, Clark, is just the thing to tie it all together in such a sweet package.

Enjoy
the guitar and the singing really fits quite right ! Love the bouncy and good feeling of the guitar. Nice pickin! Like how you made the drums fit with the guitar. And that is not always easy with the fingerpicking guitar. I struggle with and it really is an art! Almost has a folky Jerry Reed sound. Like the ending too! Amazing talent you have CC !!! And your kids really sound like this should be on some type of kids cereal that mom makes. Send it to Kelloggs and you could make a fortune. :) Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your kind words, and I especially appreciate your comments on my guitar playing, coming from one of my favorite guitar players on this site. I like the Kellogg's idea!

Sing it man
What mother wouldn't want such a dedication in song? It sounds like a fun project you guys took on. Nice guitar work sir. My mind keeps filling in the sound of a blues horn section with stabs here and there, but that just reflects my tendency to over produce.

I appreciate the comment, particularly the reference to the guitar work, because I've self-identified as a composer more than a performer for many years. I really enjoyed your band piece for your dad!

Thanks for having a listen! And yes, she is fond of colourful hair, esp. purple. Me, I'd be happy with any hair, but that ship sailed many years ago…
