This song was made for a redditor named Mama_Curly, after a request she posted on, well, reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/singing/comments/7s3hag/seeking_a_vocalist_for_an_anniversary_gift_please/

'My boyfriend wrote me a song for my birthday and I want it sang and put to music for our anniversary as a surprise. My anniversary is Valentine's Day. If someone is able to help me out I would really appreciate it! I know I have a tall order but surely there's another hopeless romantic like me that is able to help, pretty please?'

I immediately heard these lyrics in my head, sang to a soundtrack which sounded like it was from an indie movie, and got to work. To the best of my knowledge, the song was well received, but all credit for the following lyrics go to Mama_Curly's unnamed boyfriend! Whoever you are, man, you're one heck of a lyricist. Give me a shoutout if you ever want to write a song together.

Lyrics:

She sat staring at a blank screen
Not knowing whether to laugh or scream
It didn't matter what she read
Didn't matter what she heard
Nothing described them word for word.

When she turned on the radio
There was never a song for them
But baby there's no song
For such a rare gem.

When words can't describe her beauty
How can a catchy little jingle?
How can you describe how that smile of hers
Makes your heart tingle?
They say music comes from the soul
That a good song can make you feel whole
But baby all we need is
Our own beat and a goal.

We can search all day and look all night
Take our time and check every song
For what's right
But baby our love is too beautiful a sight.
Baby if we had a love song
It wouldn't be about our tale
How quick would it be stale?

She sat staring at a blank screen
Not knowing whether to laugh or scream
It didn't matter what she read
Didn't matter what she heard
Nothing described them word for word.

When she turned on the radio
There was never a song for them
But baby there's no song
For such a rare gem.

Baby I believe in luck
And you believe in fate
I say we met one day by chance
And you say it was on the slate
But now I see fate and chance
Always had a date.

A short time later fate played her cards
And luck would have it that
She sent you my way, you my way
You came to me when I need you most
With a light that lit up my darkness like day.
Baby If we had a love song
It wouldn't do our love justice
There's no-one to understand- just us.


She sat staring at a blank screen
Not knowing whether to laugh or scream
It didn't matter what she read
Didn't matter what she heard
Nothing described them word for word.

When she turned on the radio
There was never a song for them
But baby there's no song
For such a rare gem.

When I fell for you I fell for life itself
Because life has no purpose
Until you make it yourself.
My love for you
Couldn't feel any less wrong
So the least I could do
Was write you a corny little love song


She sat staring at a blank screen
Not knowing whether to laugh or scream
It didn't matter what she read
Didn't matter what she heard
Nothing described them word for word.

When she turned on the radio
There was never a song for them
But baby there's no song
For such a rare gem.

Today, I tackle the great question - what is it all for? What do we do when our efforts don't yield results. How do you break through the barrier and make a name for yourself in the music industry? How do you tackle the disheartening feeling of not progressing? How do you convince yourself to keep coming up with more energy when you get so little back? These are questions every musician - EVERY musician faces ten times a week. Hear my views on this now.

February 16th this year saw the 15th album go up on my wall with the release of Thaurorod's 'Coast of Gold'. With this occasion, I thought it would be nice to revisit a song from the very first album I released, Seventh Wonder's 'Become', from 2005.

My history with this band was short, stooped in conflict, and ultimately ended with a much-less-than-amicable breakup, but nevertheless, 'Become' was what set me off on the journey of being a recording artist, and I owe it, and the band, a lot of the success I've enjoyed since then.

So, soberly, with a certain sense of nostalgia, but always with a great dose of retrospective love, I offer my rendition of 'The Secret'. I hope you enjoy it.

Noone can deny the huge impact that impulse responses have had on the amp simulation business. These days, you can't even sell a dedicated hardware unit without the ability to load IRs.

Most of us guitarists are used to using IRs to simulate the characteristics of different speaker cabinets, but why not think outside the box? 3 Sigma Audio have produced a series of 'Electric impulses', which promise to change your guitar sound into some of the most iconic guitar models in the world. So let's put that to the test today.

Can 3 Sigma Audio's 'Teller' Telecaster impulse, change my Jackson 7 string into a vintage Telecaster? You decide!!

I first heard this song just a week ago, and it immediately grabbed me. I've always been a fan of Kacey's music, and this song perfectly embodies the disheartened, hopeless feeling that her lyrics sometimes have, matched with the amazing melodic nature of her vocals.

I decided to make a full cover of this song, testing out my ability to make a full soundscape using the staples of this genre. It also marks my first use of the 3 Sigma Audio Telecaster impulse response, on which I plan to post a review soon!

Enjoy your space, cowboy...

I was rather surprised when Pasi from Thaurorod decided to ask me to do the guitar solo for the ballad 'Halla', which closes the album 'Coast of Gold', because of the presence of two amazing shredders in the band already. But I enthusiastically jumped into the challenge, and wanted to create something tasteful, that played off the melancholy nature of the song, as well as the rather laid back dynamics of it.

The result is, in my opinion, a fitting solo, which shows a little skill in places, but mostly flows between runs that meander like a skier down a slope. Winter is here.
