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.
