Description
2 1/2 years ago i came up with the music from playing around on my ukelele. recorded the music but i had no lyrics, so it sat. yesterday i decided to get it finished. scratched out some lyrics and put down vocals. yeah it's a day late but what the heck, it wasn't like a new years resolution:)

Lyrics
New Years Day

It’s a new year, a time of hope
changing world and learning to cope
can one life change in just one day

here it is New Years Day
have we learned from our mistakes

now there’s change and what will you face
can every hour be a New Years Day
Auld Lang Syne and a sip of champagne

here it is New Years Day
have we learned from our mistakes

New Years Day
New Years Day

white out winter that chills to the bone
all the past dreams that we made
we can dream again on New Years Day

here it is New Years Day
have we learned from our mistakes

Hey!
Glad you finished this up!

LOVE that lead solo... Only wish it was longer. Ha ha...

As for learning from our mistakes... That's a rhetorical question, right?

Anyway, good lyrics and message.

Be well bro!

Hey Mike
i kept seeing the file sitting there in front of me on the computer screen all this time. if i didn't get on it, it could of sat for another 2 1/2 years. i thought it might be good to start off the new year on a positive note

Something old...
something new.
Nice how a song finally comes forth when the time is right. Good tune, Vic! I really like the lyrics - pensive, reflective - appropriate going into the new year. May yours be a good one...

Happy New Year!

That ukelele nestles right in with those electric guitars. This song is short .. but gets right to the point .. so it doesn't need to be any longer.

If you go with the concept "today is the first day of the rest of your life" .. then every day is New Year's Day .. which means we can start fresh at making mistakes : )

You've been actively polishing off partially-finished stuff. That's gotta feel good!

Ummm .. no artwork for this one?

Hi Warren
artwork hasn't loaded for me for some time now, so i didn't even try this time. the only electric going on is the guitar solo. it is very deceptive sounding i almost thought it was electrics when i first listened to it after all this time.

a time of hope
I really like the thrummy break. Unexpected and cool. As usual, your guitar solo made me jealous. I like the chord crunch at the end of the solo. Great production. As long as you are making music, Bowie and Tin Machine live.

thanks Craig
i thought the brief slower bridge would make for a cool little breather in contrast to the rest of the tune

Hey Vic it's refreshing to hear one of your tunes again. Sounds like the use was a good foundation to get this rolling ... enjoyed he "New Years New Years Day" harmonies ... great playing.

The only thing about 2017 that is certain is that we won't learn from our mistakes. Nice intro to the new year, Vic. Love the short solo. Thanks.

history proves we don't learn. sometimes it's hard to convince others who are in denial. happy new year Peter

like the mix of the ukelele with the electric guitars, they sit together very nicely and this is excellent Vic.
Nice solo and a great rhythm.

Happy New Year Vic!

actually the only electric is the solo. i used my taylor acoustic and it does seem to come across as electrics, funny how that worked out. have a great positive year Bob, we're going to need it :)

The drums
were great right off; love the mix as a whole too. So good on the ears. I envy the sounds you can get on your guitars and the song had an "up" feel. Good to hear some old favorites. Happy New Year man!

the music has been sitting around for a long time. never could think of lyrics for it. finally got determined to knuckle down and get it done.
your recent song is still resonating in my head a couple of days later :)

New Year's Day
Let's hope we have learned something from 2016, Vic - although the signs of that are not good! The song rolls along well, with trademark ringing guitars and a very tasty solo. Good one!

Loaded with energy...
Glad to hear (!) you back in the saddle again, Vic. Hope that 2017 finds you well and back to writing and recording. THIS track suggests a lot of hopeful changes. Maybe that will be the case for many of us. Who knows? But giving voice to the future HAS to be a positive start in the right direction. I enjoyed the listen.

Electric ukelele
You're getting some interesting sounds out of your string instruments. Especially at the beginning it sounds more like there is a mandolin in the mix than a ukelele.

But it sounds great as always.

Happy new year!
Haven't really sat down and listened to this until today. It's amazing you could come up with the lyrics and finish vocals in a day. Doesn't sound like a day's work! Enjoyed very much. Cheers!

Happy belated new year Vic
...... although it's just looking a bit frightening from where I'm sitting!
Another excellent post - great backing tracks, cool vocal and a nice edge on the production.
I hope to be back here a bit more often from now on.
Cheers from Oz,
