"Nothing But Free"
THE MORE YEARS THAT PASS BY, the more difficult it becomes to finish a project. Time slips by, much of it robbed from us by the almighty Mammon. Keeping perspective is so difficult, and I admire anyone who can do so. Some think we are animals only, others animal and spirit. I believe in Spirit. I even believe in Jesus the Christ of Nazareth. I know to some this sounds brave, and to some it sounds silly. To me it's merely something I cannot turn away from. Imperfections exist so in this world, within the Church and equally, if not greater, without the Church. My life, as well as the lives of many of my personal close friends and family, is consumed by the struggle. The struggle to turn the other cheek. The struggle to bring change for good, without destroying the old. The struggle to Love others as we love ourselves.
This is project #11 for me. I hope to get a few more laid down before I lay down from this world.
Still working on thanks, for there are so many to acknowledge.

NOTHING BUT FREE Project Notes: BY SONG
1) NOTHING BUT FREE
Nothing But Free (often called Growing old) is a song that started with words and concept. Sometimes it's words that come first, sometimes music. Sometimes the original riff or "hook words" end up changing before all is said and done. Musically, this song had quite a change from beginning to end. The words had started with a concept that made me think of Frank Sinatra's "It was a very good year", and the music a much more mellow folk feel than what it ended up as. I had tried this live and it just wasn't grooving, but I liked the words. So one day I had been working with a guitar student on "Last Dance With Mary Jane" by Tom Petty, and I was liking that groove and the harmonica being in there didn't hurt either. So the chords mostly stayed the same, slight changes there, but groove wise, the first time I tried it live, it seemed to work with the crowd that night, and then after with most crowds and or song writers I know.
