Going Acoustic - Song 3 : More To Life Than Rock and Roll

Going Acoustic – Song 3 : More To Life Than Rock and Roll

Hi again all…

So here we are with acoustic song number 3!

This latest effort is a little bit more “rough and ready” than I would ideally like to share. However I did say, in this post, that I would look to quickly share music in it’s rough form and let you share in my journey and (hopefully) my evolution as a solo acoustic performer.

Anyhow, the aim here is not to share finished, polished product – rather to give you a heads-up on material I am developing.

So, here we go.  What we have here is an acoustic treatment of another of my old SkyHunter songs – “There’s More To Life Than Rock & Roll”.  I heartily admit to the chorus having a strong resemblance to a certain song from the Led Zep IV album.  Indeed, when we played this live as SkyHunter, we would often play on this – ending the song with,   “It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long, lonely, lonely, lonely … time.” .  This is the original version:

The acoustic version comes out sounding a bit “country” – which I personally like. I’ve inserted a somewhat long and rambling finger-picking solo into the middle.  There are some good ideas tucked away in there however.  I will look to hone and sharpen this solo over time. Here we go:

As ever, please let me know what you think. Next song up will be all new – a little soulful ballad I’ve been working on.
