You learned to play and record and write all this in 18 months? Yep - Grammy there for sure! :)

Great stuff on so many levels... melody works great - the guitar is picking up all the hits and accents... bridge contrast works great and the bass here is cool here too... like all the arrangement bit, the piano in the verses works well with the strumming and the chorus build really well. I think you should tidy up the very end though - that sounds a little sloppy and the tune deserves a better end! :)

Get yourself a beer dude - you done really great! :)

Thanks very much, Justin.  Do appreciate the time you take to support your learners here.

I'll give the end some more thought, perhaps the opening as well.

In terms of learning, I am one of the myriad who had the urge and picked up the guitar years and years ago but never quite figured out a way to learn that worked.  Started the BC stage 1 on Dec 16th 2016 and your way unlocked the gate, now I am just rambling down the road and loving every moment.

And Lesley is delighted to have a song written for her and likes it.  Needless to say, that which delights Lesley, delights me.

Come on lets be honest here, Lesley can't really say she doesn't like it can she! The proof of the pudding is how is she looking after you since serenading her with her very own song?   ;D

But in all seriousness, big congrats David. A truly beautiful song made all the more so because it is meant for someone special. Really impressive song writing right there fella. A catchy tune and warm understated lyrics with a lovely tone that mesh perfectly with the music... it won't leave my head now!   :)

You are man David! If we ever meet, the drinks are on me! :)

Edit: meant to say you are “the” man. Forgive the typo but the drinks are still on me! :)

No surprise at all. Congrats on smashing this one out of the park.

I have one suggestion... if you ever need a stage name, how about "Producer Dave".

Cheerio partner.

Well deserved indeed, a nice trophy to recognize your fruitful journey...
...but certainly no wrap up! Hope this win can encourage you to keep it up!

Your learning path is a fast but steady one I think
I personally wish you patience and persistence when "plateau's" kick in.
If that happens,make sure to check up on us too.

glad to have you aboard here, you earned this! :)

Thanks very much, Lieven, those comments mean a lot to me.

Rest assured this is just one more special milestone that I can celebrate and look back on with satisfaction.  And I will continue with the learning and the making of music at my play-grade, always shared with the Community.

Time to update my Roadcase I think :)  And it may sound strange, but periodically I go back and re-read the whole thing from start to now.  I think too often we focus on the road ahead and forget to stop and enjoy the moment right now, to stop and reflect how far we have come.

As for plateaus, appreciate those wishes. And if I ever get truly stuck, rather than just needing to persist, the Community will be the first place I come for help.
