Default Buffalo - Original (with Video)

It's got suspense, action and tragedy! OK, it's not a Michael Bay movie, but it does tell a story.



Enjoy!

-Dave

Thursday bump - I always appreciate the comments from this forum both complimentary and constructive/critical. I keep trying to get better as a songwriter and performer, so would love any feedback. Then again if folks are following the adage 'If you have nothing nice to say . . .' I completely understand.

Cheers,

-Dave

Well done, Dave. That's a very intense story. It's not easy to compose an original song that says something meaningful and is musically interesting, but you did it. I especially liked your fingerpicking.

Wow. Thanks Ray! Thanks for the comment, and thanks so much for listening. I appreciate the encouraging words.

Oddly enough, I’d had the music for a couple of months and tried a few completely different lyrics to go with it. Then I finally settled on this story which was based on an incredibly scary close call that happily didn’t end up as the song implies.

Again, thanks so much for listening and the kind comments.

Cheers,

Dave

Well done and very engaging song. Nice tone out of your 616, very articulate guitar.

Hey Bob,

Thanks so much for the note! Somehow I missed it when you posted. Appreciate your taking the time to watch/listen to it.

I agree, I love the tone of the Taylor and am quite happy with how the sound comes through when I record it.

Finally, thanks for the nice comments about the song itself!

Cheers,

Dave
