Lyrics
El Dorado
Gaily bedight,
A gallant knight,
In sunshine and in shadow,
Had journeyed long,
Singing a song,
In search of Eldorado.

But he grew old-
This knight so bold-
And o'er his heart a shadow
Fell as he found
No spot of ground
That looked like Eldorado.

And, as his strength
Failed him at length,
He met a pilgrim shadow-
"Shadow," said he,
"Where can it be-
This land of Eldorado?"

"Over the Mountains
Of the Moon,
Down the Valley of the Shadow,
Ride, boldly ride,"
The shade replied-
"If you seek for Eldorado!"
Edgar Allan Poe

Love that guitar tone! You quickly build a sense of anticipation. Plenty of energy in the backing. You can't go wrong with Poe as your lyricist - there's great strength in them! I like the vocal, too. This is good, Dennis!

Great intro, Dennis. Some epic guitar work to match the lyrics, too. A fine adaption of Poe's poetry. Thanks, Peter.

Nice one Dennis
I must take a good look at my EAP app for ideas! This works really well - love the guitar tones, and the way everything falls together the way it should.
More cheers from Oz!,
