But, I have been writing over the last year and have about a dozen songs. This is one of them, "I'm Going Back to My Dreams". Writing it took me back to dealing with that sinking feeling dealt by a less than true (now ex-) girlfriend and the curious elation you get (at least I did) when trying to keep your spirits up by retreating into fantasy.
I also did a short video of the chorus, no verse - as I wasn't yet happy with the verse at the moment I recorded this. With two teenage daughters and a dog living in my two-bedroom apartment, my videos always get recorded wherever I can find a quite spot. It isn't always a great looking spot, though!
Just so you know, I recorded the SoundCloud file not on a uke, but instead, playing a 1928 Gibson TG-0 tenor guitar. Tenor guitars were the music industry's answer to the question, "what should tenor banjoists play during the ballads that were becoming increasingly popular by the late 20's?"
The Gibson looks a lot like a big uke. When I play this little guitar at gigs, I occasionally get asked if its a bass ukulele. In the You Tube video, I'm playing Prince Wong's Martin style 2 standard uke.
Any road, I hope that you enjoy this song, and I'll record a few more of the originals I'm finishing up soon. Until then, keep on...
