DIFFERENT DAYS, DIFFERENT TIMES & MUSIC TO THINK BY

DOVER CASTLE (2)

‘Castle on the Cliffs’


Today I’m running with samples of music matched with scenes from my home town. The music is taken from Volumes 1 & 2 of my Guitar Jam Backing Tracks albums, each album running for around 3 hours. You don’t have to be a musician to get something out of these tracks because they cover a whole mass of different moods to write or think by as well. You can download these albums for a small fee at BANDCAMP

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this selection of instrumentals and photos.

FAKE IMMORTALS

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

‘The Day After’ by Zoolon


A LIFE – I hope you enjoy;


Misty morning, starless night
E minor clad in grey not white


There are heroes saying nothing
There are angels staying schtum
While out there on the streets you’ll find
The fake immortals and thoughtless dumb


Each statistic, their fault
They take another life
She just lost a husband, He just lost a wife


Each statistic
Another life
Another life…


E Minor Guitar Jam – Backing Track. I hope you enjoy this one as well;

IT’S LIKE YOU DON’T EXIST

owl1

‘Cleo the Wise Owl’
She doesn’t talk that much but she did mention that
without bees, seeds & trees we are nothing. 


Songs that that tell stories are fascinating me lately. I’m not sure why, although the plus with a song is – providing the melody is a good one – that a lyricist can get away with just a few words and a decent chorus to tell his tale.  Here’s the beginnings of such a song – the basic lyric/verse to be chopped about with come the time to record.


THE BLUES DON’T GET REVIEWS


I saw you on the silver screen
Living out the dream
Praise and fame and fortune
And a low calorie regime


I wrote the song you never heard
Maybe you didn’t like the blues?
At least not the way I sung them
The blues don’t get reviews


You’re all over the social media
The newspapers want you too
On the front of every glossy magazine
Outside the paparazzi form a queue


Yet sometimes on a rainy day
Sometimes in the mist
Sometimes in a crowded room
It’s like you don’t exist


What about some music? Here’s an ‘Uplifting Grove – C Mixolydian’ from the new ‘Guitar Jam, Volume 1 – Zoolon Audio Backing Tracks’ Album available on BANDCAMP

It’s designed for musicians but works as a piece of uplifting music.



For the record it’s not just all my albums that are available for download on  BANDCAMP  these days. Now you can select and download individual tracks for just £1 or other currency equivalents. I think they call it ‘Pick ‘n Mix’.

COUNT TO THREE

‘Calorific Tardis’


BAD ADVICE
‘to be adapted into a lyric’


You’ve got the motor; you’ve got the SatNav and a tank full
But you’re still stuck on the inside looking out
Blind faith, too blind and blinkered to realize
The kick you get living with all that doubt


There’s a doorway to Hell or is it some kind of heaven
All you’ve got to do is turn the key
Either way it really doesn’t matter
Just close your eyes, take a deep breath and count to three

‘Destiny’

‘What Next?’
Note my Arsenal thinking hat


What next? What about a ‘Laid Back Grove in G Minor’?


If you want more music like this check out the album it’s from, namely ‘Volume I Guitar Jam Backing Tracks’ – it works for musicians & regular listeners alike. Below, the album itself. Just £6.50 for 3 hours and 20 tracks.

DOORWAY TO THE ROOM OF CLOUDS

‘Doorway to The Room of Clouds’


‘One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
I discovered that my castle stands
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand’
Coldplay


I thought I’d try something random again, just writing the first thing/things that came into my head. I’ve not done it for awhile. Here we go – fingers crossed. A letter; 


Dear Marie Antoinette aka Miss Misfit,

I painted a portrait of you. In water colours. I got them for next to nothing in a charity shop. I couldn’t afford canvas and oils. It was rubbish. I can’t paint.

It’s cold and rainy today, just like yesterday. Storms from the North Atlantic. I got soaked chasing the rainbows end. I only chased it for the pot of gold. It wasn’t there.

I never did get a replacement dog. Soon maybe. Maybe not. I wonder what happened to your toy spaniel? I never did catch its name.

Will you remember to remember me? Sometimes? Ever? Never?

I’m making a new song. Just for you. It should be finished come December. A ballad. Not quite a ballad. Acoustic, obviously. Minor chords wouldn’t have it any other way. A festive time present you’re too far away to hear. Sound travels only so far. Then it dies. The song hasn’t got a name yet.

I’ll turn this letter into a neat paper dart. I’ll aim it your way. I’m sick of posting things.

This’ll make you laugh. Some types of parking meters fascinate me. The ones that look as though they have a face with eyes, nose and mouth, but no ears. I’ve photographed some. In France, in summer, I took pics of unusual doors. One of them was a door to nowhere. If you’re looking for a metaphor there isn’t one. Not this time.

It’s a shame you talked about cakes when no one knew what cakes were. You caused a revolution. Impressive.

Best Wishes,

Zoolon aka I Hunt-Alone (mostly)

‘Doorway to an Apple Tree – just the one’


Here’s another track from the new album. It’s called ‘Laid Back Groove – G Minor’. Even though it’s a backing track aimed mainly at other musicians it – and the rest of the numbers – stands alone and is part of that 3 hour/20 track new album, ‘Guitar Jam, Volume 1 – Zoolon Audio Backing Tracks’. I hope you enjoy;


If you’re interested the new album can be downloaded at BANDCAMP   It costs just £6.50 or currency equivalent wherever you live.

NERO ON A GOOD DAY

NERO


‘Fiddling While Rome Burns’
by Shena Tschofen


NERO ON A GOOD DAY
North, East, South & West
The Earth, a burning star
What’s not on fire is melting
While I sit back and play guitar


Like Nero on a good day
I talk a better game than the one I play
Our oxygen is running low

End times are underway


The big guns in their parliaments
They could sort out this mess
They won’t of course; they won’t of course
Giant ego’s never acquiesce 


Here’s another guitar jam backing track you might like. It’s called ‘Surf Pop Groove – B Major’



And here, the full 3 hour/20 track album ‘Guitar Jam, Vol. 1 – Zoolon Audio Backing Tracks’ – being instrumentals they’re also useful as background music – on sale at Bandcamp for just £6.50 or whatever equivalent price in other currencies in the land where you live;



All my other albums live there too, namely Dream Rescuer, Rainbow’s End, The Pigeons Are Switzerland, The Forgotten Daughter of Zeus &, most recently ‘Devil’s Kiss’.
