Hi guys haven't gotten around to doing any major production on my revision on Everywhere I Look but feel free to check out the video track and tell me what ya think.



Hi to all my BJ family. Just giving an update haven't been sitting stagnant still writing new music. Have yet to finish the recording aspects of most. However I'm pleased to say be on the look out for a revised addition to my song Everywhere I Look in the upcoming days. I will also be releasing it with Outbound Music Radio hopefully as they have already been useing the current version. Stay well my friends. Look forward to being able to interact more once I polish up more stuff to release. Until then keep livin' the dream my friends.

Can anyone kindly help with uploading the audio. All attempts to upload the wav file failed. Thanks

Just noticed this post. You obviously figured it out. Broadjam apparently only supports mp3 versions for audio. I had to install a music converter on my computer to turn my wave files to mp3 files. Peace and keep groovin' Groovie

My first attempt at writing something on the classical guitar. Not perfect by no means. But let me know what you think. I really liked your last imput on the sustained chords in Everywhere I Look. Just need to get back at rerecording it.

Hi John--so sorry about your Dad. This tune is a nice way to honor his memory. I really like the major/minor back and forth! You sound like a skilled guitarist.

Hi John--I like that you highlighted parts of the melody. Maybe some sustaining chords underneath the melody would be nice, too.

Thank You for the very flattering review on Everywhere I Look. Funny how you mentioned it for a movie scene because that's how I envision it to be as well.

Thanks Sam for your constructive critique of my song "PoBoy Blues" As I'm sure you're well aware the old school blues recordings were as raw as you could get. That was the motivation behind that feel. They never could afford studio time for retakes and editing so mistakes and sound quality were part of what gave it the unique feel. Plus why put out a finished totally polished product does that not defeat the purpose. I'm a song writer not to be the final performer, manager nor producer. Otherwise in this day and age if I was I could handle all the tasks myself.

I've been at songwriting for almost 50 years. When we put out a recording, we have to endure the lumps and bumps. Not every listener expects the same thing. With dozens upon dozens of recordings (easily over 200) I've posted, different people give wide gamuts of reviews, even for the same songs, and I take each review with a grain of salt...even the ones that score 50 out of 50. Only YOUR opinion of what you do really counts in the end. Best of luck!

Hi John--thanks for the 5-stars on "Adrift". I listened to "Until We Meet Again" and "The PoBoy Blues". Both cool guitar-ideas!

Thank you Jeana I played some more of your stuff you're very talented. My Brother even heard one and he agreed. My only complaint is you're taking up all the top ten slots... (joke) LOL...

Thank you. Figure I need to show just how diverse if a range I have. Might post a classical guitar piece even. If i can get it to record worth a crud. I'm having to jack up the mic sensitivity so much that my air conditioner fan has been drowning out the guitar.



For now just submitting some rough tracks and melody's to see if anything is marketable and having one heck of a time with my Forte program. Technology gotta love it...NOT!!!....LOL... Hope you all enjoy. Peace and Love to All
