‘Lust for Gold’ – [Live Original Song]

Filmed at Wallaby Creek Festival, 2008.

Lyrics:
Holding up a broken man is more than we should do
My prosperity, angers me, I am forced to share with you
This parasite on society
Just cannot be told

You would not work for forty hours if I handed it to you
You must agree, concur with me, you’re not much of a man

The paradox that is fed to all
On which I fail to be sold:
That there is a place for dignity without a lust for gold

It was said that those are helped who damned well help themselves
Well paltry means and crazy dreams are damning you to hell

This parable of my society
Is one that must be told:

While he wastes his time with his artistry
I fuel my lust for…
Fuel my lust for gold

…it’s one that must be told:

While he wastes his time with his artistry
I fuel my lust for
Fuel my lust…

Gold !

‘Karma Sky’ – [Live Original Song]

A home demo recorded in 2008:

Lyrics:
Should I wait for a calmer sky to love?
Can we wait for a calmer sky to love?
Should I wait for my Soul Mate or give more Free Love a taste?
Can I wait?

Can I take what I think I need to live?
Can we take what we think we need for life?
Can we give what we know we need with a target to succeed?
Can we give?

We have all the answers that we need
We can feed all the mouths we need to feed
We must break our hurtful rush of greed

Can you see the point of war? Can we see?
Will you kill another child with your vote?
Can you see the point of war or can we see at all?
Will we fight?

Can we wait for the world to die? Can we wait?
Can you give a change a try? Can we change?
Can we wait for the world to fry as we turn our slow blind eyes?
Can we wait?

‘Tea Ceremony’ – [Live Original Music]

The backing track I created on Cubase is essentially a static C Major 7 chord. Some of the things that I play over a C Major 7 chord are: C Lydian scale, G Major scale and its modes, E Minor 7/11 Pentatonic scale, E Harmonic minor scale. All these chord and scale types are covered in my book ‘The GuitarGenius.com Reference Book – The World’s Finest Book of Essential Chords, Scales and Arpeggios for Guitar’.
