Carvin Rock

Postby phalanges » Sun Dec 07, 2008 7:01 pm

I had some old lyrics from 20 years ago taking up space. I wrote this back after my wife left me. The animosity is long gone, but the lyrics remain, so I thought I'd put them to music. This features my kit Bolt with twin rails and an HB and my beautiful walnut LB75.

Up to Me by Mark Courter/Woody Roberts
Woody: guitars, percussion, piano
Mark: lead guitars, bass, vocal, bgv, mix

Woody did the bulk of the guitar work, my Bolt is featured on leads. I hope you like it, and critical comments are welcome. Here's the link:

Thanks for listening,
Mark

Yeah, I agree, the vocal is very reminescent of Clapton. It makes me wonder how it would have sounded if you had recorded it when you wrote the lyrics, since the music is more feel-good than the words. I like it in just about every way it can be looked at. Good work! Thanks for sharing.

The juxtaposition of music to lyrics is deliberate, since it is in effect a song of liberation: sure you made me miserable, but that's over, I'm moving on and happy about it :D
Thanks for listening
