Yes this is really nice. Half joking, half serious here but maybe you could get a dog to sing the vocal. We had a corgi who loved to sing, of course she required human accompaniment to get her going. Sorry she’s not available, she’s playing the same gig as old Squatch.

Hee hee hee….good idea. Have you ever seen the video, “Pink Floyd Live
in Pompeii”? there’s a track on it called “Mademoiselle Nobs”, with a dog howling the blues; and not bad I might add!

Actually I believe my family owns a copy of that video. I’ll have to go hunt it down and have a listen. Don’t remember watching that track yet, and I would have remembered had I heard/seen it. Thanks for the tip.

I love this…can you tell me more about your dog? To bring this full circle…I’d love to write/sing/howl a tribute :)


PS - my cat’s ashes are in my bathroom. Since she liked to accompany people to the lavatory it seems appropriate.

Squatch was an Akita. Very large 150 pounds. Very sweet but also protective of his friends. Loved to go on walks, where he could always make me laugh, when he marked his territory; and no,I don’t just mean eliminate waste; he liked to leave actual marks. The ground was clawed up into parallel hash marks; like some giant meat tenderizer had landed for a second or 2 and then moved on. And as to the waste; he would try to leave it as high as possible….pooping on top of shrubs, steps, etc. The pee was set to the same high standard. He loved
a beer now and then. Damn I miss him.

He sounds like he had a quirky personality and a was a wonderful friend. :)

I’m thinking something around the theme of “aiming high. leave a mark”. What do you think?

Very nice.

1. Find a nice piano track
2. Add to it
3. Wait for vocals

I like the way you think. : )

p.s. - RIP Squatch.

Nice job! It’ll make a great backing - someone like Gurdonark would do a good job on this (hint!) - he’s another dog-lover. My girlfriend says she’ll try to come up with something dog-related too if I can come up with a melody. Anyone else?

This is just the right idea—to take this wonderful piano and give it a backing which blends with it rather than trying to trump it or detract from it. You’re right—this needs a vocalist and lyricist to add to this one. I hope someone is inspired to add a vocal. If anyone wishes to do a vocal but needs a lyric, they should let me know, and I’ll write one.

You really show a restraint here which is very admirable. It’s like you’ve put one more brick in a really solid building here.

I really like this, I’m kinda looking for something to write a song for my grandparents anniversary..59 years so I wanted to do something special. It’s Saturday so I will let you if I get something good enough before then..hopefully cause i think this is a great tune and they would really like it. Thank you for such wonderful music.
