    I never claimed to be any good at it but, I do write songs.
    Usually I'm inspired by some event around me.

    Here's the inspiration behind this one:
    I'm not a very "religious" person even though I was raised in strict religion, so I understand faith.
    Somebody I know who is a strong believer was just diagnosed with cancer and will be going into surgery stat.
    I put this together rather quickly with the hope of providing some support.

    When you say you "write songs" do you mean you wrote the lyrics and did the vocals or did you create the track from scratch or from a backing track?

    I usually create everything from scratch.
    This one is built on backing track.
    I added three guitar parts, lyrics/vocals.
    I wanted to get this done in a few hours so, time was limited.
    I think I'm going to re-record this on my own (without a backing track).
    Thanks for listening

    Thanks for the links...I'll check them out.

    I really like the track you just posted. The backer almost sounds gilmourish.
    The guitars sounded great and you sang it very well.
    Can't really comment on the mix, that's your forte but it sounded good to me....I know little about song construction, .... it flowed really well but I found myself waiting for a chorus. I guess that's the downside of using a backing track...

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Funny you should say "Gilmourish"......I watched a David Gilmour special on PBS over the weekend.
    That was the vibe I was shooting for with this song.

    Hey Dan,
    I'm humbled by that request.
    I didn't think the quality on this was ready for prime time but, go for it.
    If you do use it, I have one request.
    Please share any feedback from the congregation.
    Thanks
    Moto
