Description
I've had questions about recording acoustic guitar, but I decided to solve them by getting very drunk and recording sand recording and just seeing what happens. This is it. Hopefully it doesn't suck. If it sounds good when I sober up, I'll leave it be. If not, I'll do something else.

This is a song that just came to me the other day when I was feeling wistful about the past.

Hope you like it.

Lyrics
Clear Creek
©2018 Joseph Gurner


When the sun goes down again G
we'll go out for a moonlight swim G6
Feelin’ the world wash away Em7(#5)/C X2

We'll leave our clothes up on the sand
walk in the water hand in hand
floating… free as we can be

Stars shine over head Am7/Am/G
wish the water could be our bed Am/Am/G
one day we’ll back again Am7Am
where the nights never end C
back to Clear Creek G/G6/C

The first time you were shy
you told me to hide my eyes
til the water closed in on you

But I couldn’t help but peek
skin so smooth, you looked so sweet
Moonlight dancing on your skin

Frogs sing their lullabies
starlight shone in you eyes
one day we’ll go back again
where the nights never end
back to Clear Creek

It’s been twenty years or so
So long since we said hello
feels like longer since we said goodbye

But when the sun goes down again again
we’ll go our for a late night swim
while the moon looks down from above

We’ll leave our clothes up on the sand
walk into the water hand in hand
I promise that I won’t peek
but I’ll bet you’ll still look sweet
back in Clear Creek

Goin' back to Clear Creek

Back to Clear Creek

Back to Clear Creek

The guitar sounds fine to me
I think you caught the wistful feeling perfectly.

Melody, delivery and lyrics all convey a sense of regret perhaps. Time passes.

Cheers

Dick

Thanks Dick!
The place I'm singing about is actually a real place friends from back in the day used to go and spend time, play frisbee, bonfires on the beach, late-night "frolics" in the lake. Full of a range of memories and emotions. Glad at least some of that came through.

This is great Joseph!
Since I am currently a damned movie monster, I'll refrain from commenting in depth (witch btw is a years ago anyway in MacJam's time). This brings back many old memories (not just the song), but your vocals and your kind heart and dedication to your songs, and others songs as well. The guitar do NOT suck, let me refrain that; "Do NOT suck!" It's live, and personal. Thank you Sir!

Hi Mikki!
I actually have a full arrangement of this with percussion, bass, backing vox, etc. which is where I'm having fits with the acoustic guitar. This was just a spur of the moment kind of thing after spending too long at the local micro brewery. Wish I could get that guitar sound again, but I'm a little fuzzy about what I did exactly. I think I just sat down and clicked record.

Good to hear from you. Always!
