Hi all, I figured I'd toss another one out there for you to hear. This is an older one of mine, but it was just named the #1 song for April on Midnight Special Blues Radio (www.ms-blues.com), and my song "Tombstone" was #5 in February... not exactly the Billboard Hot 100, but I'll take it. It's kind of cool to see it up there. Anyway, hope you like it. It's based on a true story! Thanks for listening. www.andyhawk.com
The King of Kenosha (Andy Hawk) Met her in a tavern in the middle of the day She told me a story / I didn’t have that much to say – hey, hey, hey At a motel, last cleaned in 1968 Could’ve made a movie / oh man, I thought that I was great – that’s what she said It was then I really knew / her patient number in tattoo
I’m the king of Kenosha / king of all that I see But the windows are boarded shut / and my eyes are closed on me
She said, “I’d love to stay but I have to be back by 8 I have pills to take, and a jacket that’s straight – but you were great Take me back to the third floor / that’s where they keep the psych ward – you were great
Thanks. It sounds little lo-fi to me these days, but mixing on my own has been a long process of slowly getting better each CD. I'm still light years away from mixing really well, but it's fun practicing and getting stuff out there.
Thanks for the tip. I'm using Sonar. I like it, but I probably only know 10 percent of what I can do with it. I learn a little more with each CD, and I'm always up for hearing input from people who know more than I do about it. Each little thing I learn is a big "wow" moment. I'll keep posting them as I go along...
