Bled the Blood

Wayne Gray

97 views

My musical buddy, a guy named Jonathan Foster is going to use a song I wrote in his next album.  That's pretty damn cool and flattering.  I wrote it for a story, and it turned out pretty good.

 

If you want to abuse your ears here's me singing my acapella version of it. Bled the Blood  Jonathan will do a better job though, thankfully.

 

I've got just enough of a few gifts to know that I am not quite at a level that can be considered exceptional.  But, that's all right.  I'm pretty happy with honorable mentions in multiple areas vs. champion of one.

Thanks, Thorn.  🙂  It really fit the context of the story where it appeared.  My readers seemed to enjoy hearing the melody.  I think it helped them "get" the story.  I really like multimedia experiences, and this is one way to go about it.

I should probably get around to recording the songs I've written for my stories, too. Maybe someone will like them.

You should.  You have a fantastic voice, Thorn.

Great song! From someone who grew up on music but has no musical talent, I give kudos to your songwriting ability. I like this acapella version, nothing at all wrong with it.

Hey, Mac.  Thanks!  The melody has rattled 'round in my head for years.  I finally put words to it for my story, and I think it turned out pretty nice.  A tiny bit repetitive, but that makes it easy to sing along to.  🙂

I'm no expert, but to my ears your effort was pretty darn impressive. :)

Well, thank you for that.

 

All the little mistakes and slightly off notes make me a little crazy.  But, it's about as good as I can get it.

 

Jonathan was in town over the weekend, and we spoke a bit about what he's going to do with it.  I'm super excited about what he is planning.  Hopefully, in the next few weeks, I'll be able to share his version.
