    This is a song that I wrote about my Dad. For better or for worse, when I've played this song for my friends and co-workers, several of them started sobbing, even the ones that still have their Dads--just warning you....

    But do you think this song is a little bit toooooo sad?
    Like 'depressing' sad?

    BTW, I watched your guitar video in your thread and commented. Cool stuff!!

    As far as my song goes, yeah, I wasn't sure if making my friends and co-workers cry when watching my music video was a good thing, or not. Well, I suppose getting some kind of emotional reaction could be a good thing I guess, LOL!
  4. yeah it's pretty good. It's not really my type of music per se, but in showing no bias I think you ddid a really good job writing this.
  5. I wrote another song that is sort of the spiritual successor to the song/music video in post #1, because I also wrote this song about my Dad, although it was written about a year after he died, so it's more about healing and moving on, whereas the song in post #1 was written soon after he passed away, so it's more sad.
    Here's the song:

  6. I've had my fair share of suicidal experiences, my old man is starting to develop some health issues.
    Fuck, if I lost him I think I'de go over the edge.

    Love you dad!
  7. Nothing ever lasts forever, so treasure and savor every moment you have with your Dad, even when he's in a bad mood, because you'll miss it when he's gone....

    My Dad had me late in his life, so he was an old man when he died...

    So yeah, he had health issues when he got older--he had a stroke and had dementia too. I quit my job to take care of him 24/7 for 2 1/2 years, and it was the hardest thing I ever did--taking him to the bathroom and giving him a shower and such, and his dementia made it very hard, because he was combative at times, and towards the end, half the time he didn't even remember who I was, which was hard at times. But yeah, he meant the world to me, as you can tell in the songs I wrote about him.
