Thanks Wendy, Sorry for the delay, but John and I have been in Dulcimerville for the last week or so. It's good to be home, but boy did we have fun. I'm glad you enjoyed the vid and the drummer did an awesome job.
Thanks for sharing Karen, at times I can relate. Awesome playing, you really 'feel' the music. Nice drummer too.
Thanks Brian and Patty. "Enjoy" is definitely not the right word, but it is what it is! Thanks for letting me vent!
Karen, thanks for sharing and posting the lyrics. I think most of us can identify with those voices. This has a kind of 60s ring to it. You guys got talent
Great Job Karen and JK. "Enjoy" may not be exactly the right word given the song's lyrics, but I thought it was excellent. :)
Thanks Rob! Let me know If I can be of service!
Thanks Rob, I'm glad you enjoyed!
Very good folks. Everything melded together making a great mood for the lyrics. John, you worked that cajon! Never seen one like that before; just the ones you sit on. Always said if I ever had another band it wouldn't have a trap set, but would have an LP player.
"Thank you" to both of ya!
Thanks Randy for your sweet comments. The drummer is my hero!!!
What a beautiful melody with heartfelt lyrics Karen. Can't believe the complex chords you use...what a sound.....fits the melody perfectly.
About that drummer. I can only tell when someone is beating on 'em when they shouldn't oughta be.... this drummer here is good at it!... : )....
Thanks Goschi, I'm glad you enjoyed. Your welcome Stephanie! Hugs!
Goshi, the conga/cajon used here is from a company called LP. For what it is, it is relatively inexpensive and very fun to play. Thanks for the compliment!
(P.S. Ah, just found the laptop cajon in an online store over here in Germany as well. Anyway - very interesting!)
Great singing, great playing (both of you) - and a great presentation of contemporary dulcimer playing. And I also like the idea of a laptop cajon - is it your own invention?
Thanks so much Stephanie, I'm glad that you and Keith liked it. This was a song that was difficult for me to share with others so I'm glad you approve. There are a few balance problems with the video so here are the lyrics to the song.
Verse 1: Ive got nowhere to escape from the voices in my head I think that someday they will really drive me mad On lifes quest for a peaceful soulIm trapped in a mad house and theres nowhere to go
CHORUS: Insane Pain, its deep inside my brain Insane Pain, my thoughts are all the same Insane Pain, my soul begins to drainInsane Pain, and you get all the blame
Verse 2: Lying on the outside but deep down within An explosion is going on and the pains really diggin in Long cold nights and constant self doubtA land mine of misery that I cant seem to get out
Verse 3: All of the dangers are inside of me The embroidery of my life want allow me to fly free Im cut into pieces with a hole down insideI try to get away but theres nowhere to hide
Thanks Carrie and John. I appreciate it and thanks for playing with me John, it really added a lot to the song.
The balance was better in the room...oh well...ya done good, Karen!
