Red Dress

What a long crazy road - some days regretted signing up for this - some garbage loop pedal nonsense cranked out hours before the deadline - some of the best songs I've ever written also cranked out last minute. You can never tell and ultimately I'm glad I stuck it out.

For my final week, I've cheated. Week 1 - I recorded a little ditty new year's day from a hotel room. It was catchy but just a snippet. Knowing I'd be traveling again I wanted something a little nicer, so I worked up a full version of the tune with a chorus and a second verse and recorded it at my place before leaving town.

I feel it's a nice full circle type of deal. Thanks everyone for listening, all the comments. I've slacked on the listening but I think that with the pressure off to create in 2019 - I'll be catching up on all the great tracks here and continuing to comment throughout the year. Love you all and wishing the best for the coming year. Glad to be a part of this.

Puttin' on my red dress to ring in the new year!  Great NYE tune - I could see you and a full band playing this while everyone is dancing wearing fun hats and novelty 2019 glasses.

Thanks for being my WB brother-in-arms - I agree, it was hell, it was heaven, some weeks were almost embarrassing, others were lifetime achievements.  Never know if you're going to strike out or hit a home run, but you certainly have to step up to the plate.

Hugs to you!

You'll be making it as hard as you want it to be, though it seems to have worked out well enough.

I've done the week 1 revisit once, too. It's refreshing to listen to the differences.

Happy new year, and maybe we'll see you in 2020.
