Two weeks ago it was my wife's birthday. In honour of that I recorded a song (cover version) using my Yamaha P80 piano keyboard and basically two VST sounds, piano and strings.
My good friend Carlo who generally masters my recordings because he is much better at it than I am, thought it would be a nice idea and surprise if he also produced a matching video, which he did, as well as adding bass guitar to it....
I uploaded this to my youtube page as a private link and only shared it intitally with friends and family. However it was put to me that it might be a good idea to share it with all of you, after all you are all part of my family in a way..... smile

regards
John

thanks guys for your comments. As you may have surmised it was a double pleasure for me to record this fantastic ballad...
Incidentally, I thought I had covered an Ellie Goulding song but as it turns out the original was from the Waterboys in 1990 and sounds WAY different to hers or mine for that matter. You can check it out on youtube....
Still I prefer the ballad versions myself.....

regards
John

Hi John,
I thought I had commented earlier, but I don't see it.
You have written an outstanding song and you performed it in a beautiful, heart-felt manner that truly expresses your feeling.
Love it!
If she ever gets mad at you, just play this for her again and it will be o.k.

Thanks once more I'm beginning to blush believe it or not🙂
Yes the missus was absolutely chuffed , so I gained some extra kudos there.....
And although I am not particularly impressed by the original version of the Waterboys (which you probably checked on youtube),it is a wonderful ballad and a joy to play on the piano.....

regards,
John
