Tune in D I wrote a while ago. Messing around with Band in a Box and Garage Band so I decided to try and record it. Fun one for jamming although I just played the tune this time. Getting used to the programs... Named after the street where one of my college roommates lived. Its in Lebanon CT.

Pretty cool -- I like the way you end that phrase without resolving it...kinda leaves you hangin' out there!

I'm originally from Watertown, CT, moved to NC in 1993.

Thanks! I love NC. The people, the weather, the history, the culture, the activities, the medical care, the barbeque are all great in this part of NC (Durham). I still hate grits though.

thanks guys.
kevin, my aunt lives in watertown. nova scotia road? something like that. CT has its good points, i like the change of seasons (minus winter) and the proximity to NYC and Boston.

Id like to move down south sometime. There is no land up here, unless youve got big $$. Id like to have some acreage and live on a lake for under a million. maybe someday.

prof and banjoy, thanks. I thought it would be cool to stop right before the resolution, i like how it leaves you hanging (not for long though) And the end happened by mistake. I didnt notice an extra measure of A in the BIAB backing track and i didnt want to go back and fix it!

I know Nova Scotia Hill Road in Watertown well. I used to drive it every day on my way to work in Plainville, and we had friends on Beach Ave., just off Nova. This part of NC is similar to CT in geography and climate. We get 4 seasons, snow sometimes, shorter & milder winters, and longer & hotter summers. Land is still cheaper than CT. Come on down. The pizza is nowhere as good here as CT, however.

Very cool tune! Enjoyed it! The "cut-throat" ending is awesome.
