Long Time Coming

I haven't written any music in a long time. I've been listening to a lot of Eric Clapton, and watched a documentary of Jimi Hendrix this past week, and I was inspired. The greatest thing about writing a blues song is vocally you have a ton of freedom to do whatever you want. If the lyrics don't fit the music, you can just change the way you sing them.

So this is the song I wrote. If you couldn't guess by this blog post title, it's called, "Long Time Coming". This is a blues riff in 'A', watch me for the changes and try to keep up.

It's been a long time coming, but at least I know who I am.
It's been a long time coming, and I finally know where I am.
Call me Papa, husband, brother or son, I promise to never let you down.

It's been a long time fixing me, and I know I'm not quite there yet.
It's taken a long time killing me, but I ain't quite dead just yet.
You can try to fix me, kill me, or rob me blind, but it'll be a long time coming.

Song dedicated to my wife and son.

I actually don't think this one is crap, so that's saying something. If any of my readers want to actually hear me play it, come on over.
