Dad's Song

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I haven't been around here for a while. I hope everyone has been doing well. I wrote this song for my dad, who passed away in February. I hope you all like it. I'm looking forward to listening to all your stuff as well. 

EDIT

I uploaded a youtube video, in case anyone's interested.😁

I could tell by the waveform that the mellow part at the beginning would soon get a lot less mellow but I didn't expect the AC/DC rock n roll energy. I like the "heaven is a little bit louder" which tells me something about your dad. I'm guessing you're a chip off the old block.  Outstanding performance and guitar playing!

Hi, Bob,

Dynamite job on this fantastic tribute rocker!😀

Great writing, arrangement, excellent playing, killer vocals and I loved the butt-kicking guitar solo.🤘

I'm sure your Dad is smiling down listening to this great tribute!

SUPER stuff, brother, right up my alley!👍

Have a good one!
Bob

Thank you Bjorn! Yeah, Dad wouldn't have wanted a sad song.  He loved AC/DC, even at 77 years old, so I wanted to write a song that he would have liked. Thanks so much for the compliments!

Hi Gary! Thank you for saying that, man. I looked up to my dad a great deal, and always wanted him to be proud of me. I suppose that's natural for any son. Thanks a lot for listening.

Wow!  Brilliant tribute to your Dad.  Sounds like a cross between AC/DC and Foreigner.😃

Sorry for your  loss.  I lost my Dad February of last year.

I'm sorry for your loss as well, John. Thank you for the kind words man. I intentionally made it sound like AC/DC because my Dad really liked them. I wasn't expecting the Foreigner comparison though, but I'll take it! Thanks again man!

That's cool that you posted a rocker as a tribute to your Dad - nicely done. I agree with some of the other guys that it has a serious AC/DC vibe.  The mix sounds pro.  Impressive lead vocal and guitar work.

Thanks for posting.
