I wanted to make a track of a song I wrote in 1985 with my new Gretsch 6121. This song has only this guitar on it for all sounds. You will hear me playing all instruments and the Gretsch in clean and crunch mode (no pedals just a 1954 Fender Tremolux amp.
Demo - solo tune written by Dave Bull for new project - playing all instruments (Alesis SR18 drums programmed manually) - Fender Jazz Bass, Gibson SG (crunch), Strat (clean) with Digitech CleanX sound. 2014 copyright SOCAN
Gravity is about keeping yourself grounded to the planet - Finding a purpose in the sea of temptation and staying in your own being as an artist. Written and performed by Dave Bull as theme music for video
She got that look in her eye, I feel it comin' on
I shoulda listened when she was talkin' -
She knows it's Time to Move on
I know I caused it and there's nothing I can do

A friend of mine challenged me to go a day without complaining. It made me feel better. My daughter inspired me to write this when she was having realizations of the same thing. We all gain wisdom through living and Nobody but me can make me happy!
(Sedgwick-Bull) Vocals and Bass - John Sedgwick, guitars, backing vocals - Dave Bull - Paul Koktan -keyboards, Dan Killen - drums. From an idea by John Sedgwick about a former bandmate back in the day.
The accident happens, the driver unable to process or accept his fate continues in denial. He eventually convinces himself that it was an insignificant "accident" and that no one was seriously hurt. While mulling over his options and deciding the ethical issues, the police car rolls up in the driveway.

I watched an episode of a TV show and I realized it must have been the basis of my dream. I wrote a song about a dream. It Ain't Love is a fictional account of an affair on a movie set. It's a metaphor about acting out life and finding oneself in reality. Complicated by moments of weaknesses and attraction.
I Miss you Tonight is a song written by Dave Bull. Someone close to me was experiencing a bad breakup. She was ignored and left alone by someone who told her to move far away from home to be with him. He then found someone else and left her alone. Show compassion to the ones you love and help them when the people they thought loved them show none. I miss you tonight is the innocent cry of a jilted lover with whom a heartless partner has been unable to be honest. It still hurts remembering how badly we can treat each other when we forget to be human. Breaking up doesn't have to mean being heartless to the one you no longer want to be with.

Sometimes the sombre parts of life build up and you need a friend who can handle that you need to be morose, sanguine and maybe even a little angry and crazy at the same time. Seeing red - being pushed to the limit.
