how to never be great
« on: December 12, 2016, 10:39:55 PM »
i sometimes think to myself 'who wants to be great?'. i don't. what i DO want is to continue to improve....'sides, you wake up, there's a risk to be alive. bohlinger is at least a thinking man:

and so, being a sick s%$t in the head, i am working on this just for the heck of it-i have liked the song and the rhythm for a long, long time-ray charles? nothing i can say that aint been said, so i aint tryin' to sing it, just the guitar part and whistling:

Great means that you are breathing life in your music and it comes from the heart.  Just my 2 cents.
